Kinesiotherapy is particularly used in rehabilitation programmes (examples: cancer surgery, lymph drainage, hematoma treatment,
muscle tension) and sports/exercise programmes for strains, tendinitis or simply prolonging fitness.
The definition of kinesiotherapy is: “Application of scientifically based
exercise principles adapted to enhance the strength, endurance and
mobility of individuals with functional limitations or those requiring extended
physical conditioning” (The American Kinesiotherapy Association - AKTA).
It is based on the new science of human kinetics – the body in motion.
Many of the techniques used are those of massage therapy but one
unique aspect is the use of Kinesio-taping. This method was invented by
the Japanese chiropractor, Dr K Kase, in 1980.
Kinesio-taping facilitates the body’s natural healing process by providing
support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s
range of motion. Also provides extended soft tissue manipulation to
prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical
Kinesio-tape is available in different modes of action, it is latex free and can
be worn for many days.
