Mate, Why’s the Physio Strapping Me Up?

Physio Strapping in Perth CBD - Central City Health ProfessionalsImagine being in a small room with two noisy toddlers and three energetic Australian Shepherds. Would you enjoy being there all day? Probably not. You would likely feel annoyed and want to leave as soon as possible. However, there’s another option: taking them out to the garden, where everyone can have their own space and enjoy the surroundings. Similar to our body tissues, when they are injured, inflamed, and very sensitive, we want to create more space to calm them down. That’s where kinesiology tape (KT tape) works its magic.

KT tape is a thin strip of elastic cotton with adhesive backing. When you apply it to your skin, it creates a lifting effect and opens up space in the deeper layers of your skin. This relieves compression on structures like pain receptors, resulting in improved tolerance to stimuli, reduced pain, and enhanced mobility. Besides, the decompression effect aids in clearing swelling fluid and bruises, leaving you feeling and looking better!

Furthermore, for individuals with milder concerns, KT tape can help improve their balance and physical capabilities. Some research suggests that using KT tape can make you feel less tired during physical activities. In other words, people using KT tape are less prone to injury and may endure longer workouts compared to other gym-goers.
