Taping the Baby Bump: Kinesiotaping for Women’s Health

May 6, 2016 9:30:00 AM by MTTI

By MTTI Instructor Robin Faux

Although the human body is amazingly resilient, the physical demands placed on it can take their toll. Arguably, no other physiological transformation is more demanding than that of pregnancy. From the rapid changes that happen in the mother’s body, to the process of childbirth, many structural changes will create residual pain and discomfort or even compromise function. This may make some everyday activities more challenging than what they were before pregnancy.

Fortunately, there are many bodywork options available to expectant mothers and those who are post-partum; one of those options is kinesio taping. In this blog post, we will describe taping techniques for pain and discomfort during pregnancy, after delivery and even for menstrual pain.
