Tape in one form or another has been used in both athletic performance and rehabilitation for many years. The popularity of Kinesio taping is relatively recent and although the literature suggests that it was formally introduced by a forward thinking Chiropractor, ‘Kenzo Kase’ in the 1970’s it wasn’t until high profile athletes like beech volleyball exponent Kerry Walsh in the 2008 Beijing Olympics used it in front of the worlds media that interest in this modality really took off. Since then it has really gathered steam with ever self respecting high profile athlete to weekend warrior have considered or used it at some point. Not that there is anything wrong with the other type of tapes, its simply understanding what’s best for the job rather than what looks more aesthetically pleasing.
