Although the athletic uses of Kinesio Taping are well-noticed and extensively photographed, it is in the medical field that Kinesio Tape was created. Patient care and medical research continue to be where the ever more advanced uses of the modality are tested and perfected, where Dr. Kenzo Kase and his product educational development teams continually move forward.
Harbingers of new uses and patient populations start out at the top: as patients needing relief and assistance in physiological healing and rehabilitation. To keep these people comfortable and optimally functioning and minimize pain, Kinesio Taping techniques are constantly refined and advanced. Dr. Kase does not believe in abandoning what works, but he is never satisfied with a partial solution.
