What Is Kinesiotape?
Kinesiotape is often used by professional athletes, dancers, gymnasts, and other individuals who engage in strenuous physical activity. It is designed to help treat a wide variety of conditions, from sprains, strains to acute and chronic injuries.
Kinesiotape is latex free and hypoallergenic and is made from a 100% cotton fiber strip. The adhesive is 100% medical grade acrylic. Kinesio tape is waterproof and can be worn over several days.
Proper evaluation and assessment are critical in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Research shows that Kinesiotape has positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory system, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities and is effective during the rehabilitative and chronic phases of an injury as well as being used for preventative measures.
The doctor has been trained and certified in the Kinesiotaping Method. Mimicking the qualities of human skin, it is a non-invasive technique used to support and stabilize joints and muscles and other supporting connective tissue without restricting range of motion. Some of the benefits include pain and inflammatory reduction and the support of movement in overused and tired muscles.
