KT Tape: Abdominals
Abdominal pain is most often caused by extreme twisting of the torso. This can happen while turning to look behind, playing contact sports wherein a force is exerted on the upper or lower half of the body, or any number of other traumas to the core.
Pain is generally felt on the sides of the abdomen and fairly localized. When the pain is felt deeply or radiating, it is a sign of a more serious internal issue.
KT Tape can help to relax sore muscles, relieve pressure off of swollen areas, and increase overall circulation to promote the healing process. Often times the pain is minor and not threatening, but for more serious pain please consult a physician prior to any self-treatment. After a diagnosis has been made, you can use KT Tape to relieve the symptoms of abdominal pain and provide support to the muscular structure.
