Kinesiology Taping Course – Ligament Technique (tissue lift)

This week on Vivomed’s Kinesiology Taping Course blog we will look at the Ligament Technique (tissue lift).

Ligament Technique (Tissue Lift)

The main feature of this technique is the high degree of stretch applied to the tape, in order to create a strong lifting effect of the underlying tissue. The degree of stretch to tape is often between 75% and 100% stretch. The tissue is in the neutral position.

Historically it has been called the ligament technique (tissue lift) as it is often used to support ligaments, more specifically however, it is widely used on all other tissues to relieve pain.

Having completed the necessary assessments, make a choice of application.
