Kinesio Tape

Kinesio Tape and the technique was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 35 years ago in Japan.  Since then, Kinesio Taping has become the gold standard for therapeutic and rehabilitative taping; and has recently gained worldwide notoriety as the colorful tape seen on many athletes throughout the recent Summer Olympics. Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation or range of motion. This means you heal faster, experience less pain, and get back to living a pain free life.  

The properties of Kinesio Tape that make it useful for athletic-applications also makes it just as beneficial for non-athletic injuries. The increased circulation and lymphatic flow resulting from Kinesio Tape is particularly helpful in reducing swelling and pain associated with acute and repetitive injuries that occur with: whiplash, strain/sprains of the lower back or neck, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, pain from poor posture, knee pain, among many other injuries. 

Essentially, Kinesio Tape can be effective for nearly anyone with chronic or acute injuries.  Athletes will find it especially beneficial while training and during events since the supportive properties of the tape do not restrict range of motion or movement.  Post event, Kinesio Tape may help reduce swelling and pain thus shortening recovery time.

Although, Kinesio Tape can be used alone, the benefits of Kinesio Tape are enhanced when combined with therapies such as chiropractic, massage, or physical therapy.
