Kinesiology Taping Reduces Swelling and Bruising

Here's a simplified explanation of the major mechanisms of how kinesiology tape helps you to reduce swelling and bruising.


When your muscle or joint is overused or injured, that area becomes inflamed or swollen. This swelling is composed of blood (internal bleeding from the injury) and other fluids. The excess fluid should be removed by the lymphatic vessels in the area, but if the inflammation is great enough, the lymphatic vessels get compressed and can’t fully do their job. This can lead to an ongoing cycle of inflammation and pain, which can limit performance and slows the healing process.
