Kinesio Taping Therapy
What is Kinesio Taping?
Often, through injury, the body is incapable of placing itself in the best position for healing. Kinesio Taping is a supportive treatment method that uses external adhesive strapping to help hold the patient’s muscles and joints in a more optimal posture. This results in improved circulation through an injured area, better control over muscle contractions, reduced pain, and ultimately faster healing. The application and utilization of Kinesio Tape are based on the results of a thorough physical therapy evaluation. This then determines the direction and cut of the tape, as well as the appropriate amount of tension required.
The unique properties of Kinesio Tape mimic the dermal layer of your skin; it can be up to 60% beyond its resting length and is water-resistant to withstand moist environments. This allows for Kinesio Tape to be worn up to 24 hours daily for 3 to 5 continuous days. Taping may be applied during any phase of injury, as it can be clinically utilized to reduce inflammation and help advance all phases of your rehabilitation program.
