Kinesiology Taping for Pregnancy
Kinesiology tape can help relieve pregnancy pains including neck postural stress, lower back pain, sacroiliac pain, pain that results from the additional weight and postural shift that occurs with pregnancy. In the later stages of pregnancy it can create more of a sedentary lifestyle. As the body changes size and body structure, muscles and joints take in new lengths and positions. As these changes occur, so do compensatory movement patterns, which may cause pain and discomfort.
With kinesiology tape applications, it is the goal to establish a more optimal body posture creating a less painful body position. These changes may increase the body’s movement capacity and encourage better movement patterns and a more active lifestyle.
The kinesiology tape can be left on for up to five days and is water resistant.
