Pregnancy and giving birth place great strain on the pelvic floor muscles, with many women experiencing pain and discomfort during the birthing process. Our doctors use Kinesio tape to assist with muscle regeneration in the pelvic area and help provide pain relief.
Applying Kinesio tape – also known as elastic therapeutic tape – to the skin activates receptors which decrease pain levels. It also helps joints, muscles and tendons interact, as well as enlarging the veins and increasing blood circulation. Improved circulation aids the healing process and promotes the replacement of damaged tissue.
Using Kinesio tape in no way inhibits new mothers from carrying out their daily activities and helps to facilitate pain-free movement.
