How Does Function Taping Work?
Overworked or injured muscles are usually inflamed, which causes a blockage blood circulation between the upper muscle and skin layer. The ultimate result is pain. Treatment consists of stretching the tape and applying it, at which point it contracts and lifts the skin, creating space for more blood flow. New blood supplies oxygen to help with pain relief, soreness, cramping, sprains, and other injuries. FT can also be used to support, stimulate, or inhibit muscle movement to protect weak or sprained/strained tissues.
