Taping, Kinesio tape
Taping is a relatively new form of physiotherapy in Slovakia. It is a rehabilitation method designed to facilitate natural healing process of tissue while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without limiting the body´s range of motion. Additionally, it helps with extensive soft tissue manipulation, i.e. improves blood flow in order to enhance the benefits of manual therapy administered in clinical settings. It uses special tapes applied to injured body parts in specific directions for achieving the desired effect.
