If you’ve been watching the US women’s volleyball team play at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, chances are you’ve noticed the colored athletic tape that many of the Olympic athletes are wearing. This kinesiology tape stems from the Kinesio Taping method, developed 20 years ago by Kenzo Kase, D.C.

Traditional methods of athletic taping stabilize the muscles but do not permit them to move freely.

Kinesio taping lets muscles and joints move, providing support without restricting blood flow.
