Neuromuscular Taping has appeared as an innovative and effective bandaging method and is being applied with full success and wide acceptation in all the International medical communities.
In a relatively short time, the Neuromuscular Taping technique, also called “Medical Taping” or “Coloured Taping” has conquered a niche in the daily terapeutic practice of many physiotherapists. The way this method optimizes the recovery process of the body itself makes it very popular amongst patients and professionals alike.
This method appeared first in Asia in the sixties, specially in Corea and Japan, and at today’s date it is being widely used in Europe and America.
The Neuromuscular Taping is increasingly becoming a necessity for elite athletes of all disciplines, who are using this new therapy method with great acceptation and incredible results. This technic is easy to apply, and can be used on any type of patient, not only for sports injuries but also for the usual backache, tendinitis, joint pain, drainage, scar treatment… it can be applied as well to children, women, older people…. The hypoallergenic characteristics of the tape, the softness of the fabric and its durability and resistance to water (it lasts 3-5 days without detaching itself) make it suitable for any skin type and application.
The Neuromuscular Tape works by reeducating the neuromuscular and proprioceptive system, improving the posture of the patient thanks to the sensorimotor information it provides, facilitating lymph drainage, reducing pain, and accelerating the recovery process of the injury, allowing natural movement all the time and facilitating blood circulation and the ensuing contribution of nutrients. The Neuromuscular Tape provides support and stability to joints and muscles without affecting the range of motion. It is a technique based in the process of selfhealing of the body.
