HOW DOES TARGET TAPE WORK?
Due to the injury within the region of the motor system, swelling occurs and inhibits (or slows down) the flow of blood and lymph, causing concentration of organic liquids in the subcutaneous layer.
The application of a kinesio tape like TT TARGET TAPE to the skin in the area of an injury, raises and folds the layers of the epidermis including the papillary layer of the dermis. This leads to an increased blood flow capacity in the region of the sub papillary network of vessels and skin-deep vessels and to the enhancement of lymph transportation from the lymph capillaries of the papillae to the sub papillary network of blood vessels.
Thanks to this process, more advantageous conditions for regeneration of injured tissues are created. As a result, the normalization of fasciae tension occurs, blood and lymph flow is activated, pain decreases and functions are rectified.
