What Is That Funny Colored Tape On David Beckham?

You may have seen pictures of David Beckham, Serena Williams or Lance Armstrong with pink, blue or black tape on during a sporting activity and wondered what that tape is for?  Well, this tape is widely used because it helps heal while providing support and stability to muscles and joints.  Sometimes we hurt ourselves and think we can not continue working out or playing the sport we love.  Sometimes that is the case, but there are many times that taping can allow us to continue what we love without hurting ourselves further.  Taping can also elevate our performance so some athletes keep it on during their sport to run faster or move quicker.

Kinesio Taping® is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to accelerate your body’s natural healing process.  It does all of this without restricting your body’s movement.  Kinesio® Tex Tape is safe for everyone from kids to grandparents.  It successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.

The Kinesio® Taping Method not only provides your muscles and bones with the support you are looking for, but at the same time rehabilitates your condition as well.  It does this by targeting different receptors within your somatosensory system.  Kinesio® Tex Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin.  This lifting affect decreases inflammation allowing a quick recovery from your injury.   Kinesio® Tex Tape can be applied to any area of the body and has the ability to reduce pain and inflammation, enhance performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing.
