The art of Kinesio tape - KMSP-TV

Why Olympians love Kinesio tape

Posted: Updated:

For more than 25 years, Kinesio Taping has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management and physical therapy.

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.

In the mid-1970s, Dr. Kenzo Kase was already a well-known Japanese practitioner licensed in chiropractic and acupuncture. He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close to living human skin, in response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping methods on his own patients.

FOX 9 Fitness Expert Ali Holman from CoreCamper.com stopped by to discuss this method and show how it is commonly used.  For more information on Ali's Online Workout program, visit CoreCamper.com
