Health Solutions Kent - Strapping and Taping

At Health Solutions we provide a wide range of therapeutic and sports taping suited to your injury and rehabilitation needs.

Kinesio Taping:

This type of innovative taping has an array of therapeutic benefits and because of its breathable qualities can be left on for up to 5 days. During this time the tape can help accelerate the healing process from traumatic injuries, acute and chronic injuries and pain, and inflammatory conditions. This type of taping is usually used in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities but can also be used on its own during the rehabilitation process.
