What is kinesiotape:
It’s a cotton weave tape that has 180% elongation of its original length. The tight weave provides more durability for the tape in our patients. The non-latex acrylic adhesive is very sturdy. By lifting the skin and fascia, the tape has many effects. Improving the space between muscle bellies, between skin and fascia and between fascial planes itself allows the body to have better circulation, improved vasodilation, and improved lymphatic drainage. It also has a neurological effect.
This has become a favorite method for human athletes and physical fitness. The benefits are the same for your dog as people. We will apply tape to help support and enhance the benefits of massage. The tape will stay on for 12-36 hours and then be re-applied as needed.
