The Kinesio Taping Method 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.
Through providing extended soft tissue manipulation, Kinesio taping prolongs the benefits of manual therapy administered by our physiotherapists. It is used at our clinics to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic and neuro-muscular medical conditions.
Benefits of Kinesiotaping
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 the musculoskeletal system. By providing extended soft tissue stimulation, kinesio taping prolongs the benefits of manual therapy administered by our physiotherapists.
Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, KinesioTape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, KinesioTape 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.
KinesioTape can be applied in many different ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, enhance performance, prevent injury and promote optimal healing.
