Kinesio Tape - A New Fashion Trend in London 2012


What seems to be the common denominator among many athletes participating in the London 2012 Summer Olympics? Answer: Colorful strips of tape in different parts of their bodies.  

It is called KINESIO Tape and it has become the latest must have treatment among athletes for sports injuries.   Actually Kinesio tape has been around for over 25 years.  In 1970, Dr. Kenzo Kaze developed the tape which has the texture and elasticity very close to human flesh
Kinesio Tape is used to:
  • Re-educate the neuromuscular system
  • Reduce pain
  • Optimize performance
  • Prevent injury
  • Promote improved circulation and healing
According to Kinesio's product website - the tape must be applied by a qualified and trained practitioner - one that has learned the proper technique to apply the tape.

Many, however, are skeptical about this tape and believe that a lot more research needs to be made to confirm the positive results many claim to have.  Others believe that is merely a placebo effect and it provides a positive psychological effect for the athlete - if they believe it will work, it just might.
