Kinesiotape is used to relieve pain, reduce swelling/inflammation, speed recovery from injuries, and allow lymphatic drainage. When pressure is put on the top epidermal layer of the skin (as with injuries), the nerves in that layer send messages to the brain to react to that stimuli. KT Tape pulls that top layer of skin away from the fascia which aids in removing that negative stimuli and allowing for a normal healing, fascial correction, and lymphatic drainage.
