Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping

Olympic volleyballer Kerri Walsh has something weird on her shoulder

…and so do dozens of other Olympic athletes:

Water Polo players use it…

…and so do Spanish hoopsters!

(That is, when they’re not setting the table for “…dirty knees…look at THESE!)

We could totally have used tape to make our eyes look slanty!

What is it?

Funny you should ask, Miss Gorightry!

“The Kinesio Taping® Method has taken the Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine world by storm. This amazing taping method was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago in Japan. Kinesio Taping® has quickly become the gold, or should we say “platinum” standard, for therapeutic rehabilitative taping. The proprietary method of taping uses a uniquely designed and patented tape for treatment of muscular disorders and lymphedema reduction.”

Dr. Kenzo Kase, inventor of the Kinesio system

…or is he really Kaiser Soze?
