Kinesio Taping

Kinesio taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. It does so in a way without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of adjustments administered within the clinical setting. Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions. Kinesio tape is a therapeutic taping technique not only offering you the support you need, but also rehabilitating the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kinesio tape 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.
