Kinesio Tape has many different functions, but one of the most striking is it’s ability to drain a bruise.
This picture is just another of many that show increased blood and lymphatic flow when Kinesio Tape is applied directly. The patient had another much smaller bruise that was not taped that still had swelling and pain by the time the larger bruise had mostly disappeared. You can see the lines created in the bruise where the Kinesio Tape begins to drain it. You can even see the lightening in the color of the bruise from Aug 3rd to Aug 7th. With the bruise being 6″ x 3″, it was about the size of an average adult’s hand and it basically disappeared in two weeks.
