After tissue trauma, the tissue will show an inflammatory reaction. This results in local swelling and increasing pressure of the surrounded tissue. Because of this increased pressure, blood circulation Is disturbed and pain increases. The lifting function of the tape causes an immediate decrease of pressure, which restores blood and lymph circulation. Pressure on pain receptors decreases which leads to immediate pain relief, automatically leading to more physiological movements.

- Sports injuries
- Oedema / haematoma
- Correcting posture
