Athletes across the world are taping up—a movement that exploded during the 2012 London Olympics and video of international stars like Serena Williams and David Beckham wearing various forms of tape. People worldwide are trained in various forms of taping including Ryan Kendrick, founder of Dynamic Tape and a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist IMS Practitioner whose mission is to reduce the load of the tendons during athletic performance.
“We are focused on managing the load and using elastic recoil to absorb the load,” Kendrick said, “We use it mechanically and use it like a bungee cord. The elastic energy in the tape for deceleration and to absorb the local load which in turn takes the work off of the muscles. Your energy improves bio-mechanics to improve.” ~Ryan Kendrick
