The PerformTex™ Kinesiology Taping Method is recognised as an innovative and highly effective modality for treating sport injuries and aiding lymphoedema reduction.
When an athlete suffers an injury it is common that their medical/physio team will use PerformTex™ K-Tape as a part of the recovery treatment. It can be used at the very acute stage right through to the end stage of rehabilitation and return to competition. PerformTex™ K-Tape is an effective treatment for Muscle, Joint, Tendon & Ligament injuries as well as Lymphatic dysfunctions. The method is extensively used throughout the world and is ideal for Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Sports injury practitioners and Lymphoedema specialists because it does not limit range of movement so it allows athletes to continue their training and sporting activities despite injury. This taping method is fundamentally different to other athletic taping techniques. Using a highly elastic and unique adhesive tape called PerformTex™, the next generation in Kinesiology tape, does not limit range of movement so it allows athletes to continue their training and sporting activities despite injury.
It’s growing popularity and more recent high profile in the press and at the Olympics has encouraged Equine specialists to develop its use in the Veterinary field. The results so far have indicated that it can be as useful on horses as it is on people. Most of the research so far has been carried out on individual horses or small groups of horses, but larger studies are planned for the near future.
