Kinesiology taping is one of the most widely-used therapeutic modalities in both athletic and healthcare settings. It 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 as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
Here at Chiropractic Restorations, kinesiology taping is customized to the specific needs of the patient and state of the tissues being taped. The tape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons to provide lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from injuries. Kinesiology tape creates neuromuscular feedback that inhibits or facilitates stronger firing of muscles and tendons. This feedback creates support elements without the bulk and restriction commonly associated with wraps and heavy bracing.
