What is K-Taping Therapy?
K-Taping is a holistic, non-pharmaceutical therapy, effective in the management of signs and symptoms in a range of clinical conditions. It supports almost the entire spectrum of physiotherapy treatments, offering therapists a multitude of new treatment possibilities, including but not limited to, low back or neck pain; muscle tension; joint instabilities; disc problems; migraines; tinnitus; menstrual pain; and some urinary disorders. Its use has also been established in competitive and professional sport for injury prevention, treatment, and pre-training preparation.
K-Taping also offers an effective approach for management of post-operative edema, for example in primary ACL reconstruction. There is evidence that it contributes to successful management of lymphedema in post-operative breast cancer.
K-Taping therapy can help reduce pain, facilitate muscle function and improve circulation. It is thought to stimulate proprioception and lymphatic flow, promoting structural support and tissue healing.
