You already know that the best betting software loves to explore the weird world of sports, and today we will talk about a new resource that's becoming popular among athletes.

Sometime during the Olympics you may have noticed one of the athletes participating in some event using a kind of bandage for muscle pain in some part of the body. This adhesive elastic bandage can also be called kinesio tape and has become extremely popular among high level athletes.

But what is it really for and how does it work? In theory, this bandage is used to enhance the performance of an athlete and reduce the risk of sports injuries, since it favors the drainage of liquids that may be contained in various parts of the body and favors the symptoms of muscle injury.

Because it is made of elastic material, kinesio tape has a certain advantage over other dressings. Its way of making is great to allow the blood flow is not altered and no movement is restricted in this process. Including, this bandage improves blood circulation and promotes better muscle performance.

Invented by the chiropractor Kenzo Kase in 1970, these tapes are even used in the treatment of traumatic nerve and muscle injuries by some clinics in Japan. In the world of sports, athletes constantly show up with the coloured bandages to stabilise and preserve joints and muscles during competitions.

Although commonly used by high-performance athletes, kinesium tapes can also be applied by physiotherapists or ordinary people indoors. Anyone who wants to get rid of muscle pain or discomfort in the muscles, neck or back can make use of this product - as long as they position the bandage correctly.


Effectiveness of the bandages

Many people believe that the kinesio tape releases some kind of medicine for muscle relief, but that's not exactly how this product works. The effect given by the bandage occurs because of the pressure applied to a certain region of the body, which will create a small space between the muscle and the dermis.

It is this space that will allow the fluids to flow correctly through the body and the pain to diminish drastically. Because of this, nowadays this type of bandage is the most recommended type of bandage for the treatment of sprains and other common injuries for those who are used to practicing sports.

Depending on the model and brand of bandage, it is possible to keep it on the skin for up to 7 days without needing to change it. A curious fact is that the manufacturing material allows you to take a bath or practice aquatic activities without any type of risk for the bandage.
