PRINCETON, N.J. – Kinesio® Holding Corporation (KHC) is proud to announce that we are now part of the USRowing sponsor community.  The Kinesio Taping® Method, developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase, is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

Kinesio® tape will be made available to USRowing Training Center athletes as they prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

“Kinesio® tape has been helping USRowing athletes since the 2005 World Rowing Championships in Gifu, Japan,” said USRowing Team Physician Marc Nowak. “It is a staple of treatment for the management of acute to chronic musculoskeletal injuries and no rowing athletic training bag is complete without it.”

“Kinesio® tape is a rare product that consistently lives up to its claims and is limitless in its applications and uses. It will be a valued partner to the USRowing medical team in keeping our athletes performing at their best as we approach and participate in the 2016 Olympic Games.”

“Kinesio® is proud to support the members of the USRowing National Team to help them prepare for Olympic competition,” said Jeff Baskett, PR Development Manager for Kinesio®. “Rowing uses every large muscle group in the body and the benefits from the Kinesio Taping® Method will help keep these muscles in homeostasis by supporting muscle movement while maintaining full range of motion.”

Kinesio® cannot be understood without understanding our story. Dr. Kenzo Kase developed the Kinesio Taping® Method in the 1970s to fill a void in the treatment options that were available at that time. He was searching for a way to facilitate the body’s natural healing process and prolong the benefits of his treatment after his patients left his clinic. Through his education as a chiropractor, his innate ability to sense internal pain and dysfunction through the skin and his creative therapeutic mind, Dr. Kase was able to develop new methods of treating his diagnoses. Among these methods, Kinesio® Taping industry was born and soon all other therapeutic elastic tape companies built upon Kinesio tape and methods.

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio® Tex Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.

If it doesn’t say Kinesio®, its not the real thing
