Kinesio tape is an elastic adhesive tape used by geriatric and pediatric patients and athletes. These tapes are latex-free, water resistant, hypoallergenic, and wearable in nature. Kinesio tape works by alleviating discomfort and facilitates lymphatic drainage by lifting the skin, which increases interstitial space, decreases inflammation, and reduces pressure. It offers support and stability to muscles and joints without hampering the body movement. These tapes can be used for a range of complications varying from headaches to foot problems.
