What is Kinesio Taping?

Kinesio Taping is a form of taping that enhances the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without limiting the body’s natural range of motion.

What Can it be Used to Treat?

Kinesio taping can be used to treat a variety of different conditions including overuse injuries, sprains, strains, lymphatic drainage, joint dysfunction, and to assist in rehabilitation.

What Can I Expect?

While standard athletic tape is rigid, the special elastic tape used, Kinesio® Tex Tape, has a texture and elasticity very close to living human skin. It works by re-educating the muscles and nerves in the affected area, reducing pain, helping to enhance performance, preventing injury or reinjury, and promoting proper circulation for better healing. Your doctor will use Kinesio taping along with other manual techniques.
