Calf and achilles tendon injuries are notoriously difficult to heal because they are activated with every step. Injuries that do not require complete immblilization are ideal for kinesiology taping treatment. The tape is applied directly over and around the borders of the affected muscles and/or tendons and provides support and pain relief without restricting normal movement. In many cases, individuals can continue with their normal activities, including sports, as they recover from these tendon or muscle injuries.
