Product Description

PHYSIO TAPE BULK 2" X 33.5 YDS, CLINICAL ROLL

Physio Tape is a tex based non latex tape with adhesive on one side which is used in physiotherapy to treat many different ailments afflicting the muscles and joints of the body. Tapes such as Physio Tape and Kinesio Tape are popular all over the world owing to their widespread usage by sports persons and athletes. During strenuous sports activities, significant large stress is placed on various joints and muscles of the body. Professionals tape up those muscle and joint areas that sustain the maximum stress. For a runner it would be the ankle area, for a boxer it would be the wrist. The use of these tapes by successful Chinese athletes in the Beijing Olympics has propelled its popularity around the world. Many athletes can be seen at competitive events with Physio or Kinesio tapes.

Using Physio tape to help muscles

Physio Tape are applied by stretching them over the target area. The tape wraps tightly around the muscles and convolutes the skin. This narrows the blood vessels and thus, increases blood circulation in that area. More blood means more nutrients and energy getting circulated in that area. Other than affecting the blood circulation, the pressure exerted by the tape on the muscles numbs the sensory cells of the skin thus reducing any kind of sensation in that area. This allows the athlete to use the muscle for a longer duration as it numbs the feelings of pain and fatigue. These are the two main mechanisms of action of a physio tape when used during a strenuous activity.

Other benefits of Physio tapes

Physio tapes can also be used before as well as after an activity. Physio tapes, using the same mechanism discussed above, promote healing and rejuvenation of fatigued and injured muscles when wrapped for longer durations. Muscles not only control the movements of the body but they also control the lymph and blood flow as well as influence the core temperature of the body. Thus, failure of muscles to perform properly can manifest itself in many different symptoms. Physio tape has been designed that it can be used to support muscles throughout the day and up to three days without removing the tape. Physio tapes have become popular in physiotherapy treatments for muscle and joint ailments such as tennis elbow, bad back, ankle strains, knee pain, etc.
