WHAT IS Kinesiology taping?

Kinesiology is a taping technique designed for use in both therapeutic like injury rehabilitation and working athletic situations.

It adheres to the skin with an elastic quality, which allows it to decompress the skin to help relieve pressure and pain, increase lymph and blood flow, and accelerate oxygen availability for healing.

In areas of swelling and edema, it can aid in the removal of toxins commonly associated with injury and overuse.

Does it INTERFERE in the horse movement?

The tape stretches and is flexible.  Therefore, it does not restrict range of motion, and at the same time, provides stability and support. The degree of stretch used when applying the tape and application pattern is of paramount importance in obtaining the desired results.  Consequently, a thorough assessment of the horse's needs and issues is critical.  It is the foundation for successful tape application.

how does it work?

The tape interacts and lifts the skin thereby decompressing the tissue and enabling increased blood flow and oxygenation allowing for a decrease in inflammation of affected areas and facilitation of lymph drainage. This help to facilitate both the healing process in the case of injury and the recovery process in the case of training.

The tape also helps prolong the benefits of manual therapies because the tape helps to increase the stretch of the collagen fibers in the muscles.
