KinesioTape

Used by professional and Olympic athletes, kinesiotape is an elastic tape used to promote pain relief and swelling, improve muscle function, provide support without limiting range of motion. The elasticity of the tape pulls up on the skin which provides a stimulus that that activates inhibited muscles and overrides pain signals to the brain. Think of rubbing your arm after hitting it on a wall. The altered sensation from the physical touch (rubbing) overrides pain signals to the brain.
