Balance and training products are carefully designed and crafted to help all populations improve their balance. And while, most people believe that the elderly population is concerned about balance, the truth is balance plays a key role in everyone's health.
Professional athletes now recognize that balance training helps them to perform better in their sports, especially building and maintaining a strong core.

Millions of people often struggle with some form of musculoskeletal pain.
Thankfully, more clinicians are wising up to the detriments of opioid prescriptions to treat musculoskeletal pain, and these pain sufferers know that your hands-on care is exactly the solution that they need to eliminate their discomfort. The only set back? You’re only in contact with your patients for a few hours a week. Researchers recently conducted a systematic review to describe the mechanism of action and determine the clinical efficacy of Biofreeze® on musculoskeletal pain...
Dynamic Tape is not a kinesiology or athletic tape. It is a Biomechanical Tape, an entirely new category of sports and therapeutic taping. Dynamic Tape is an innovative, 4-way stretching tape with strong elastic resistance and recoil of varying grades, absorb and inject force to reduce the workload on the body, especially injured issues.
Dynamic Tape is a revolution in taping:
- it is composed of a synthetic, stretch nylon & lycra cloth
- it is designed to stretch in all directions (4-way stretching) as opposed to only a longitudinally (2-way stretching)
- it has many times the resistance and recoil, likened to a bungee cord
- it can stretch to over 200% of its resting length with no restrictive end point. This prevents the tape from being applied with the body part in a shortened position while maintaining full range
- it is designed to work mechanically, designed to optimise movement patterns while absorbing load and re-injecting that energy back into movement, all without limiting range of motion
While poor posture takes a toll on the spine, the underlying effects may not be as obvious. Shoulder, neck and upper back pain are often associated with posture problems and can get in the way of everyday activities. With this TheraBand Kinesiology Taping for posture support, you can alleviate the stress of almost any condition associated poor posture, such asUpper Crossed Syndrome, headaches, forward head posture, cervical radiculopathy and more. Grab some TheraBand Kinesiology Tape and let’s get started!
Kinesiology taping for posture correction
Most published research on postural improvement after kinesiology taping are case studies. Back in 2013, Hwang-Bo et al.studied the effects of kinesiology taping in a female sedentary worker with rounded shoulder posture. Kinesiology tape was applied with approximately 50-60% stretch to accommodate for a more rounded posture in the dominant upper back and shoulder, and approximately 40-50% stretch in the non-dominant upper back and shoulder, without stretch at the end of the tape, while holding the shoulder retraction posture.
After one month of kinesiology taping, the rounded shoulder posture improved progressively and the dominant upper back pain gradually disappeared. The patient no longer complained of dominant upper back pain during deskwork.
