If you suffer from chronic lower back pain, shoulder pain, or neck pain, you should try kinesiology taping as a treatment method. Instead of pain pills, muscle relaxants, and other such strong prescription medications, taping is 100 percent drug free. It allows you to remain in complete control of your mental capabilities so you can safely drive, work, and perform tasks without risks of accidents.

How Does Kinesiology Taping Relieve Pain?

The tape is applied to an extended area on the body where you suffer and experience pain. Kinesiology taping helps treat chronic pain by increasing blood flow to the affected area. The increased blood flow causes normal activity and muscle response. The tape extensions create a lowered pain neurological response in the brain. Your nerve endings are sending signals, not only from the affected area, but also the areas where the tape is secured to your body. Because there is often no pain in the extended areas, it confuses your brain, and reduces pain and discomfort.

Additionally, because the tape covers a wider area instead of just the central location of your pain and discomfort, it creates an added layer of support for the muscle group. This also helps improve your posture. Rather than slouching in a chair, or sitting humped over a table, the tape reminds you of the proper way you should be sitting.
