One of the physiotherapeutic methods I am using in my practise is kinesiotaping. I do not use it as a separate therapy, but rather as a support to other techniques, for example to maintain a relaxation effect after massage.
The main purpose of using kinesiotaping in horses is to:
• achieve analgesic effect
• reduce muscle tension
• reduce lymphoedema
• support the structures that have been injured (e.g. stifle joint, SDFT, SL)
Kinesiotaping is widely used in human physiotherapy and there, it has a long list of well-documented effects. This technique is also becoming popular in veterinary practise, especially in dogs and horses.
If You would like to know more about kinesiotaping or other treatment techniques, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will happily explain it over a good cup of coffee
