3NS TEX Tape 5cm x 5m
When a muscle is inflamed, swollen, or stiff, the space between the skin and muscle is compressed, resulting in constriction to the flow of lymphatic fluid. This compression applies pressure to the pain receptors beneath the skin, which in turn relays discomforting signals to the brain resulting in the person experiencing pain.
If you stretch the skin of the affected area before application of the tape, the taped skin will form wrinkles when the skin and muscles are back to its normal or neutral position. The wrinkling effect formed by the tape is essential in the effectiveness of the 3NS Taping Method and Technique.
Since this lifting of the skin increases the space between the skin and muscles, the lymphatic fluid between the skin and muscles moves more effectively. Therefore, the friction between the tissues beneath the skin is decreased due to the promoted movement of lymphatic fluid.
Due to increased space between the skin and muscle, pain is reduced because pressure on the pain receptors is lessened. The physiological effects of 3NS Tex Tape will enhance the body’s own healing process.
