    Thumbs up Kinesio Taping Use & Methods - Useful information

    For all BCers,

    Anyone who wants to use Kinesio tape (there are many brands in the market, but essentially they are generically known as kinesiology tapes) should first study how the tapes are supposed to be applied.

    Here is a snip from an e-How page that succintly sums up what Kinesiology tape is all about:


    The Kinesio taping techniques originate from the practice of kinesiology, which is a holistic treatment that taps into the body's internal healing systems through the neurological and circulatory systems. While there are specific brands of stretchable tape preferred by many athletes and physical therapists that use Kinesio taping methods, the term refers to a way of taping rather than a brand of tape.

    Tapes are to be applied in different ways to the same muscle/ligament/group for different purposes: either to support, or for rehabilitation. So please understand why you are using the tape, and then apply accordingly. Otherwise, you may not only not get the desired results, you may even get negative results.

    Here are some resources you may tap into for more information on Kinesiology tape products, and teping techniques.

    maybe it can help my cousin since he stopped playing badminton because of it

    The way any kinesio tape works, it is supposed to take pressure off overused muscles; enhance lymphatic flow and reduce swelling and pain in the process; improve circulation to the injured areas; reduce fatigue and stiffness.

    There is some chance that kinesio taping can help under some conditions, but obviously you would need to consult a practitioner for this. There is a pretty clear rule in BC: you may discuss the conditions etc, but all this is no substitute for visiting a qualified practitioner or specialist.

    I did a search for "Kinesio tape + varicose" and came up with this:

    Hope this helps...

    I've used kinesio tape for a few injuries. I love it, it allows me to carry on playing through the little niggles.

    Thank you Cobalt for the useful information. The tape greatly helps to reduce my knee pain and swelling after ACL and MCL injuries 3 years ago. With its' support, I can play badminton more frequent now.

    Hello BC Members,

    My name is Derrick Ng and currently ranked 29th in the world in Men's Doubles. I have been using this tape for many years but have had a difficult time finding a tape that was suitable to the aggressive movement of badminton. Many tapes have fallen off, ripped, or just wasn't flexible or elastic enough. That is why I have started my own brand of Kinesiology tape, Skinetex.

    Skinetex is more flexible, keeps it's elasticity longer, and sticks longer. I also made my tape to be a blend of cotton and spandex compared to competitors who use nylon or latex. This is important for people with sensitive skin.

    I am about to launch my product soon. You can visit www.skinetex.com to sign up for our grand opening discount. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at derrick@skinetex.com.

    Hi Cobalt,

    Yes!! you are absolutely right. With improper application of Kinesio Tape will not yield positive results and even may cause blisters, etc. 2 important things about Kinesio Taping; firstly make sure it's the Original kinesio Tex Tape!! The original Kinesio Tex Tape is made from 100% medical grade tape and adhesive. Secondly, make sure you know the proper applications of it and if you are not sure for the first time, please consult your "Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioners", which quite a few has been certified in Malaysia. Most of them are Physio based in Hospitals.
