Locomotor disease can be found in 15-20 percent of the population, more than a hundred thousand people suffer from inflammatory joint disease, and the number of people experiencing symptoms of degenerative joint disease is 10-20 percent of the population.

- Kinesiotape: Kinesiotape, also known as elastic therapeutic tape, activates the pain-relief receptors when placed on the skin. By affixing the tape, the underlying muscles can move smoothly underneath the skin, which is flexibly fixed. The result is a naturally induced lymphomatic massage. The tapes assist interactions between the joints, muscles, and tendons, while also opening veins, increasing circulation of the blood. The tissue moves beneath the tape, the natural healing process of the tissue is sped up by this movement. The application of kinesiotape significantly shortens the healing time of joint and muscle problems.
