The kinesio taping method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over contraction. The great thing about this technique is it allows the patient to continue daily activities or sports with a full range of motion. Perhaps you saw kinesio taping during the Olympics. USA's women's beach volley ball team sported this exiting new product during their run to the gold medal. Actually, kinesio taping has been around since the 70's!
