What to do with bruises?

July 17, 2017

Whether you bumped into you desk or collided during your last match, bruises can be ugly and painful. Bruises are caused when tiny blood vessels are damaged or broken as the result of trauma to the skin. The raised area of a bump or bruise results from blood leaking from these injured blood vessels into the tissues as well as from the body's response to the injury.

Bruises are usually not serious, but they can be painful, especially when they cover a large surface area.

With the application of Kinesio Tape, the skin is literally lifted from the muscle, allowing for extra space for increased blood flow and lymph drainage. This helps promotes healing by allowing an increase in circulation and fresh blood (full of oxygen and nutrients) to travel to the area and repair the damaged tissue in a faster manner!
