Kinesio® Clinical Video Series: Scar & Edema
Management of Scars is often overlooked when treating pain, swelling, decrease range of motion, contractures, and cosmetic appearance of the skin. Scar tissue can significantly disrupt how our bodies function. Using Kinesio® Tex Tape is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways of treating scars. Its unique elastic qualities not only assist scars to mature, allowing the collagen to become more in a parallel, but it can also assist scars to release adhesion by the application methods of the Kinesio Tex Tape. Both new and old scars can be treated with Kinesio Tex Tape with changes noted as early as 24 hours in mobility, adhesion and color. Scar management with Kinesio Tex Tape is gentle with quick and significant results. Kinesio Taping® post wound will assist in swelling management by encouraging muscle pumping and lymphatic flow proximal and peripheral to the area to decrease swelling, encouraging decreased pain and increased rehabilitation potential.
