The neuromuscular bandage is one of the services that you can find at Templo del Masaje. Next, we detail what this technique consists of.

What is the Neuromuscular Bandage?

The kinesio or neuromuscular bandage is a Japanese bandage technique that acts on the musculoskeletal and lymphatic system. It was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase and consists of applying an adhesive bandage to the painful area, taking advantage of its elasticity to adapt to the user as if it were the skin itself. Thanks to the particular characteristics of the bandage, the bandaged area can move freely, unlike classic bandages.

Kinesiotaping is very useful in the treatment of muscle pain and injuries, as many athletes and patients have indicated after trying it for a while. It was first used by orthopedists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and other professionals in Japan; Today its use has spread throughout the world, thanks to the success stories it has had in the world of sports and witnessed by many athletes who have explained how the neuromuscular bandage has improved, in one way or another, their sports performance.

Description of the Neuromuscular Bandage

The tape is usually made from an elastic cotton bandage that can be stretched up to 140% of its original length. This tape, as proven in practice, successfully corrects the alignment of weak muscles and facilitates joint movement, thanks to the traction qualities of the bandage itself.

This tape should be applied over the stretched muscle, from the point of origin of the muscle to its point of insertion. Once applied, the tape is rubbed to activate the adhesive.

Its analgesic properties are also being studied: based on what we have experienced with some of our patients, the neuromuscular bandage can help reduce inflammation and optimize mobility. This will provide the patient with greater performance and stability when practicing sports and in their daily routines.
