As defined on www.kinesiotape.com the Kinesio Taping® Method 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 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 clinical setting. Kinesio tape helps relieve pain, helps re-educate muscles as well as working with the lymphatic system to help decrease edema and promote healing.
There are many different brands of kinesio tape on the market like Rock Tape and KT tape. It can be used in conjunction with physical therapy, massage and chiropractic adjustments in our clinic during all stages of rehabilitative phase. Ask our clinic providers for more information.
