There are well developed muscle groups and strong supporting joints distributed on the human leg. When applied to the legs, the skin will feel gently pulled up. This is said to help increase the space between the skin and subcutaneous tissue, thereby changing the pressure under the skin. The change in pressure enhances the flow of lymph, reduces swelling and helps heal bruises quickly. Leg taping also improves blood flow to the skin and enhances the performance of the body’s joints.

Some physical therapists often prescribe leg taping as a rehabilitation aid to reduce swelling and pain. Add extra support to muscles and joints without restricting movement.
