Kinesio Tex Gold FP Wave Tape can also be used in conjunction with other therapies, including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, massage therapy, and electrical stimulation. This elastic therapeutic method of taping involves taping over and around muscles in order to Reduce Pain provide support, and promote the body's natural healing process. Tex Gold FP Tapes can be applied stretched and unstretched depending on the suggested application.
Unstretched: Used in the acute stage of rehabilitation, the skin, muscles, and joints of the affected area need to be stretched before application of the Kinesio Tex Tape. Once applied, the taped skin will form convolutions when the skin and muscles contract back to their normal position. This technique lifts the skin, gradually taking pressure off of the lymphatic system, allowing blood and lymphatic fluid to channel more freely within the injured area.
Stretched: If joints or ligaments are injured, the Kinesio Tex Tape should be stretched before Application to the Skin. The damaged joints or ligaments are incapable of functioning normally and rely on the stretched athletic tape for correction. This technique gives the user support and free range of motion and enables the individual to participate in his/her normal physical activities with functional assistance. Please note that the Kinesio Tex Athletic Tape is ineffective for muscle pain if the skin is not stretched.
