Kinesio taping during pregnancy

During pregnancy, hormonal changes cause ligaments to loosen, preparing the expectant mother’s body for the upcoming birth. This can cause instability in the joints, particularly the sacroiliac joint, while a growing belly can mean stomach and back muscles become overloaded.

Kinesio tape can provide great support for stretched skin and overworked muscles. Kinesio tape aids microcirculation and tissue regeneration, helping the skin to adapt as the belly increases in size.

Kinezio tape strips can also be used to ease pain in the lower back area, as well as improving blood flow when applied to lymph nodes in the legs.
