Solve problems and musculoskeletal pain without restricting the movements of these as in certain types of bandages.
The Kinesio is used to treat any problems associated with pain, from headaches to foot pain. Its main functions are: Subject of muscles (muscle and joint stability), reducing inflammation and improving circulation, relieve pain, correct joint problems and even used in healing processes.

There are about 300 joints in the human body and many of them are susceptible to what is commonly considered as an injury, and the more likely are the joints of the neck, shoulder, hip, knees and ankles.
Most injuries occur in these joints as a result of repetitive stress or trauma. A common form of joint injuries is the ankle sprain, which occurs when the ligaments that hold the ankle together are torn or stretched, often occur during sports activities.
Symptoms associated with a sprained ankle are commonly known, which include pain in the injured area, swelling and inability to bear weight on the area, also sometimes redness. The diagnosis is made with the use of imaging technology like x-rays, MRI and CT scans. Treatment consists in reducing the activity, splints and walking aids such as crutches. Techniques are also used in physiotherapy and surgery is necessary only in severe cases.
The shoulder is made up of three bones: the clavicle, scapula (shoulder blade) and humerus. The socket joint is formed by the scapula and clavicle, humerus lies within that stream. A shoulder separation occurs when the collarbone is separated from the joint. This is also called the AC separation.

We must also be vigilant against excessive wear in any area of the shoe, which would indicate that we do not walk well or that the shoes do not fit our pace.
Another reason why there are more injuries is overtraining (above the capacity of the subject) or not carrying out the necessary break-out sessions (after a hard day of weight training is advisable to rest for one or two days before making another like it).
To avoid injury, one of the best methods is to perform a good stretch . Although often not given the importance they really have, are very effective in preventing injuries. We always perform stretches as complete as possible, involving the maximum number of muscle groups.
When damage occurs in a peripheral nerve, distal axons die, degenerating sensory receptors, the end plate and skeletal muscle fiber. Most of the structures without innervation may be for one year, after which time it is difficult to be successful axonal recovery. You lose self-control and resulting propiceptivo atrophic skin, hair loss and taste, poor response to temperature and loss of subcutaneous fat. The architecture of the nerve is never normal after a section, although some new fibers are myelinated, they get connections with end-organ function, sensory or motor.
The objectives physiotherapists in the physiotherapy system will Nevis general objectives and relieve pain, stimulate circulation to reduce the incidence of trophic disorders and functional rehabilitation for activities of daily life and work.
The joint objectives will maintain joint mobility to prevent stiffness and ankylosis, prevent and correct deformities by posicionesf uncionales joint, passive movements and progressive positions of correction.
The objectives aimed at protecting muscle paralyzed muscles and skin numbed injuries, strains or protect shortening produced by unopposed forces, pressures and tensions that can act from outside, keeping tropism in injured muscles through massage, application excitomotoras heat and currents. and facilitate the onset of muscle contraction, muscle strength gradually recovered.
