Support muscles and prevent night cramps with kinesio tape 🎗

Learn to apply kinesio tape to the knee

In this month’s Wellness Connection video, Dr Matt is joined by Physical Therapist Cesar Matteo, who describes the benefits of kinesiology tape, kinesio tape – or k-tape for short. Olympic athletes have brought attention to this flexible athletic tape because it is impossible to miss many of the brighter color choices.

What makes this type of this athletic tape different from its traditional predecessor is flexibility. Made of cotton and spandex, kinesio tape supports weak or injured muscles while allowing for freedom of movement. Its water-proof, sweat-proof, and can be kept in place for up to three days, allowing injuries to heal with support while re-educating your body to use its muscles properly.

In this month’s Wellness Connection video, Cesar demonstrates how to properly apply kinesio tape to the knee, while Dr Matt explains how the tape can help to alleviate nighttime pain and muscle cramping (one patient called it a miracle!).
