Kinesio tape is a “definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designated to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing stability and support 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.”www.kinesiotaping.com
K-Tape can be used for Facilitating a Muscle, Inhibiting a Muscle, Tendon Correction or Space Correction.
Facilitation holds a joint in position so an overstretched muscle is supported.
Inhibition aids in relaxing an overused muscle.
Tendon Correction assists in supporting the tendon and increasing your awareness at the joint which increases use and in turn, increases strength.
Space Correction assists in reducing pain by decreasing pressure on pain receptors and reduces swelling by increasing fluid movement.
Our Patients, especially our Athletes love this form of therapy!
