Does kinesio tape help with bruises

You may want to have your bloodwork done. I had bruises when I was diagnosed with leukemia. I don’t want to scare you, but your doctor will be the best person to answer your question.
Funny you should ask – it sure does, though there is controversy about why. I have included a link to show how to use it – unlike taping for a muscle strain or support, the procedure is different. You stretch the skin and not the tape! It would be helpful to have someone else apply it, and as usual it should not be applied over an open wound or skin tear.
I have not tried this, so I would love to know if it works for you. Do you have someone to assist you?

thanks blood works surprisingly all fine
see if i can find someone my wife is away
Hi @lotsofpain 😊 Do you happen to take a daily aspirin? It's not uncommon to occasionally see little bruises from a daily maintenance aspirin. If that's what is causing your bruising, maybe ask your doc if three times a week would be better. Maybe Monday, Wednesday and Friday instead of every day?
thanks no i am not. suspect i am not realising i am bumping into things i am trying taping the bruise to see if it speeds up recovewry
ok sue thanks stage 1 achieved pics of original bruise – not come out very well and taping attempt
Pictured not coming out well but very significant improvement after 48 hours with that taping so it does seem to work
It really worked i have been this is how it works something to do with increasing movement of intestitial fluids
Great report – I'm not sure either why it works, but kinesio taping has worked for nearly every application we have tried over the past 25 years.
