1. Pain Relief
The tape itself does not contain any medications or topical substances. However, dynamic tape works well for relieving acute and chronic pain. When the dynamic tape is applied, the tape provides lifting of the skin. The lifting of the skin allows for increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage at an injury site. We utilize this effect of the tape to help decrease swelling and bruising in acute injuries, and this helps decrease healing times. Also, the tape stimulates receptors in the skin which are called mechanoreceptors. These mechanoreceptors provide a competitive stimulus that blocks pain signals (nociceptors) going to the brain
