Improve Sports Performance
While we can’t turn a 5 hour marathoner into a 3 hour runner, we do have methods to help you break the 3 hour barrier if you’re already close. When applied properly, kinesio tape can help athletes improve form and decrease fatigue through better blood flow. These are the two most critical aspects of increasing performance in almost any sport.
If you would like to be taped at Fix Body Group call the office or just walk in during normal business hours. You can bring your own tape and for a nominal fee we will have our certified Kinesio tape docs fix you up. Or you can purchase the rolls of tape that we have here.
