For all the women who have been pregnant, a majority of you have felt pain at some point during your pregnancy. With the growing weight of your baby, pulling your center of gravity forward, you could experience low back pain, hip pain, etc. Your extremities could swell and your ribs could be displaced as your body changes to accommodate your growing child.

Kinesiology taping is a way to help relieve the pain caused by pregnancy. Kinesio taping can help with and is not limited to:

  • Loosen tight tissue (muscular/fascial)

  • Reduce swelling

  • Support your growing abdomen

  • Hip support of musculature

  • Hold ribs in place
