Taping Technique - Kinesio Tape
The Kinesio Tape Benefit
The Kinesio Taping Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the our clinical setting.
Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio Tape is safe and effective for a variety of orthopaedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions. This Taping Method offers you the support you are looking for, but also aids in the rehabilitation of the affected condition as well.
By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system it alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
Kinesio Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, optimize performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.
The Kinesio Benefit
Evaluation and assessment are key in the treatment of any clinical condition. In order to get the desired results from a Kinesio Tape application as well as any other treatment, a full assessment of the patient is necessary. In some cases, the treatment of a condition may require treatment of other underlying conditions as well. This assessment includes manual muscle testing, range of motion testing, gait assessment, and any other orthopaedic special tests that are deemed necessary.
