When kinesio tape is applied during pregnancy: It can help decrease lower back pain, support abdominal muscles (muscles that are over stretched during pregnancy), prevent and alleviate swollen ankles and wrists, promote better posture and also help if you are suffering from any sciatica, pelvis and leg pain.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Taping is highly effective in relieving muscular aches and pains during pregnancy. Kinesio Taping works very well to treat pregnant women who have aches and pains in their back, neck, pelvis, pubic area, legs and even feet and wrist .

Properties of Kinesio Taping:

Kinesio Tape is gentle, yet strong, and depending on the way it is applied, it creates a lifting effect on skin that improves circulation, relieves pain and supports muscles and joints. It is latex-free, has the durability to remain effective for four or five days and you can even shower, bathe, exercise and get a good night’s sleep while wearing it.

The product is a type of thin, elastic cotton tape that can stretch up to 140% of its original length. As a result, if the tape is applied to a patient on a stretch greater than its normal length, it will “recoil” after being applied and therefore create a pulling force on the skin that it is being applied to. This elastic property allows much greater range of motion and can also be left on for long periods of time before reapplication.

Adhesive and elastic strip of cloth can be applied over various body areas. K-Tape is not made to restrict movement. Instead, it helps support the tissues where it is applied.

Benefits of Taping:

Some of the benefits of K-Tape are:

– Reduces swelling
– Supports muscles and joints
– Decrease pain
– Decrease muscle spasm
– Increased proprioceptive input to muscles and joints

Benefits of taping for pregnancy:

K-Tape can help throughout pregnancy. K-Tape can be applied to problem or painful areas to relieve pain and promote better body function. Some benefits of K-Tape during pregnancy include:

– Decreasing low back pain
– Supporting abdominal muscles that are over-stretched during pregnancy
– Preventing and alleviating swollen ankles and wrists
– Promoting better posture
– Using Kinesio Taping on the affected areas can also relieve pain if you are suffering with sciatica and back pain, pelvis and leg pain.
