Before reading this article you must know: I was not always a fan of kinesiology tape. I didn’t understand how applying stretchy kinesiology tape to skin could actually have any real benefit to the underlying muscles, and I really didn’t understand how it could help people in pain. I thought every positive thing I heard about kinesiology tape was attributed to the placebo effect. I tend to be pretty skeptical.
Thankfully, my preconceived ideas about kinesiology tape were challenged when I practiced at a clinic that specializes in treating athletes. Every single day, I witnessed the various benefits of applying kinesiology tape, and eventually started doing research to understand how it works. Needless to say, I came across some exciting research and evidence of the benefits of kinesiology tape, and now use taping in my practice. Recently, I even wrote an article for the Be Well magazine to share the benefits of kinesiology taping.
