How Kinesio Taping Helps With Swelling/ Bruising

Have a look at the following photo I took of my patient.

This photo was taken from a patient who came in to a clinic a few days
after his double bundle ACL reconstruction and his knee
was really swollen after the operation.

After treating him and mobilizing is patello femoral and tibio femoral joints and telling him what to do and not to do etc, I decided to put some kinesio tape on his severely bruised knee. He came in to the clinic 3 days later and asked what tape he had on. He was pretty impressed with the tape.

You can see the results for yourself.
