Equi-Tape is the first kinesiology tape designed specifically for the equine. It can support your program whether it is that of training and conditioning OR one of rehabilitation. Unlike the familiar non-elastic athletic tape, Equi-Tape interacts with the skin and associated neurosensory and mechanoreceptors, without compressing the tissue.
The unique elastic and design characteristics and ability to ‘lift’ the skin, along with specific learned techniques, encourages improved circulation for improved healing. The result can be immediate with respect to pain management due to the body’s ability to associate pain as it relates to increased inflammation/swelling. Therefore, reduce the perceived inflammation/swelling, reduce the pain messages sent to the brain via the pain receptors.
- Decrease muscle spasms
- Reduce inflammation and associated pain
- Reduce swelling and edema
- Re-educate muscle memory
- Support ligaments, tendons and joints
- Prevent injury and speed recovery
- Help with injury rehabilitation
- Increase circulation and promote healing
- Increase equine athletic potential
Equi-Tape allows all components of the body to work more freely and completely during activity, thereby being an excellent addition to any training program.
