Lower back pain can take many forms and often results from issues with bones, muscles, joints, or any other part of the back. The most common causes of lower back pain are degenerative or herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, and spinal stenosis, all of which place greater pressure on the lower back. In most cases, back problems do not stem from a disease or serious medical problem, which means even healthy, active people are at risk.
A variety of physical therapy methods are available to alleviate pain and solve the deeper problems that cause lower back pain and discomfort. Kinesiology tape is one such method that has proven effective for many people. Kinesiology tape is designed to create convolutions in the skin, which increase interstitial space, stimulate the body’s natural healing process, and increase the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid to the affected areas. (If your back pain is the result of a sprain or other injury, kinesiology tape may even help speed up the recovery process.)
It is made of cotton strips and adhesive that is safe for skin, and it is designed to be worn for days at a time without peeling off. It may appear simple to apply, but taping your back without the help of an expert may not maximize its curative potential and it could result in a longer recovery time.
