Kinesio® Taping Method

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.  The use of Kinesio® Tex Tape provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual physical therapy administered within the clinical setting.

Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio® Tex Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopaedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.  The Kinesio® Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique that not only offers the support you are looking for, but simultaneously rehabilitates the underlying condition.  

In cases of injury or overuse, the muscle loses its elasticity.  Based on the study of kinesiology, Kinesio® Tex Tape was created and developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase, providing the proper degree of elasticity to mimic a healthy human muscle.  Kinesio® Tex Tape not only stabilizes joints but can lift the skin microscopically.  The lifting affect caused by Kinesio® Tex Tape forms convolutions in the skin, increasing interstitial space, allowing for a decrease in inflammation and pain of the affected areas and facilitating lymphatic drainage.

Kinesio® Tex Tape is used for:

Rehab - Using Kinesio® tape after a manual manipulation session can increase efficacy of your treatment by giving a continuous amount of stabilization to the affected area and gives muscles and ligaments a chance to rebuild and restore.

Alignment - Kinesio® tape can bring the body back into alignment and help decrease joint pain.

Pain - After manual manipulation, Kinesio® tape can be placed on the affected area to decrease discomfort.  If there is bruising or swelling, there is a taping method that drains fluids into the lymphatic ducts to decrease swelling and rid the body of bruising.

Competition - Therapists often apply Kinesio® tape to athletes before a planned event to prevent injuries from occurring.
