Kinesio Taping

The Kinesio Taping Method is a taping technique applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles, and to facilitate muscles in movement. Because Kinesio Tape is a non-restrictive, highly elastic type of tape, it allows for full range of motion and function, unlike traditional sports tape. It provides stabilization and support during not only sporting events, but during daily activity also. Kinesio Tape is a multifaceted technique that can be used to treat any injury head to toe!

Kinesio Tape is a “light modality”. In rehabilitative applications it works continuously and can provide an additional 2-3 day relief after therapy. Kinesio Tape does not mask symptoms, but instead promotes healing in a variety of ways. Because your therapist can not provide treatment and a hands on approach to you at all times, Kinesio Taping is like having healing hands to put on the injured area 24-7.

Kinesio tape is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between. Examples include muscular facilitation or inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain or pain, knee and shoulder conditions, hamstring problems, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patellar tracking, pre- and post-surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic preventative injury method and pinched nerves.

The Kinesio tape is applied with a stretch. It enhances the circulatory flow, of blood and lymphatic waste drainage, and it decompresses the nerve structures, which are causing you to have the pain as a result, so in that, it allows the circulation to channel more efficiently. The goal of Kinesio tape is not long-term continual use; it is mainly for short-term use. Many athletes use the Kinesio taping to help support the function of their sporting activities.
