Consequently, so much attention was given to the importance of muscle that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body’s own healing process came about.
Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. Employment of Kinesio taping creates a totally new approach to treating muscles, nerves, joints, pain and swelling.
