If you suffer from aches or have an injury where you have minor joint pain, one thing you can do is use elastic kinesiology therapeutic body tape to help reduce your suffering. There are several different types of taping products on the market today. You want to make sure you choose the right one that will deliver the results you seek. Keep in mind there are both short term and long term wearing options, depending upon the product you select.
For example, if you use regular sports athletic tape on the affected area, it helps compress the joint and may bring short term relief. However, it is not designed to be worn for a long period of time. Further, this type of tape does not allow the skin to breath, so sweat gets trapped under the tape. In addition, you normally need assistance when applying the tape, to ensure it is securely attached to the body.
On the other hand, elastic kinesiology therapeutic body tape is better suited for treating minor joint pain from wear, tear and sports injuries. Once attached and in place, it can be worn for up to five days before it has to be changed. The tape allows the skin to breathe so you do not have to worry about sweat being trapped underneath it. This kind of taping product is also water resistant, so it is okay if it gets wet.
