A Patient Comments...
SpiderTechTM Kinesiology Tape
Spider TechTM Therapy uses an innovative kinesiology tape technique which supports muscles and joints to reduce pain and improve activity in affected areas.
Kinesiology tape has been in use for over 30 years for treating muscle injuries, strains, sprains and neurological disorders. This new formulation makes use of a stretchable,
breathable adhesive tape, precision cut into shapes for specific areas of the body.
The tape is made with hypoallergenic acrylic glue and is made to mimic the weight, elasticity and thickness of the skin, so that it feels "natural" when applied.
It can support muscles and joints structurally, preventing harmful ranges of motion or supporting proper postures. It can improve lymphatic and microcirculatory flows and also
stimulate the skins own endogenous analgesic system, a lessening of the feeling of pain.
