Kinesiology Taping

When combined with other all-natural therapeutic techniques such as chiropractic care, Kinesio taping can help you overcome nagging pain, heal more quickly from injuries, and protect your body against additional damage. At Premier Chiropractic Clinic we can provide you with this advanced form of soft tissue treatment.

What Is Kinesio Taping?

Kinesio taping, also referred to as kinesiology taping, began as the brainchild of a doctor named Kenjo Kase in the 1970s. His invention utilized a special kind of tape that conveys a gentle pulling force to the skin. This action increases circulation and facilitates drainage at the treatment site, an effect that reduces swelling, eases inflammation, safeguards against muscle cramps or spasms, and helps injured tissue heal more rapidly.

You may have seen Kinesio tape in use by athletes who sport elaborate patterns of colored tape on their bodies. However, you don’t have to be an athlete,. or suffer a sports injury, to benefit from this form of care. Kinesio taping can help people with:

  • Back strains
  • Ankle sprains or strains
  • Rotator cuff problems
  • Pre-operative and post-operative swelling
  • Tennis elbow
  • Whiplash
  • Pain from a herniated disc

If you struggle with chronic pain due to overuse or repetitive motion injury, Kinesio taping can help you minimize this challenge. Skilled application of specific taping patterns can give the muscle groups in question the additional support they need to do their jobs with less strain.

Kinesio Taping At Our Chiropractic Offices

Kinesio taping and chiropractic care make a natural combination. Both modalities address many of the same kinds of injuries and chronic pain conditions. Kinesio taping can also help you get the most from your chiropractic adjustments. Excessive mobility can cause joints to fall back out of alignment in the days following an adjustment session. Kinesio taping can help stabilize the treated joints.

Kinesio tape has the same flexibility as human skin; it’s also hypo-allergenic and latex-free. You can wear this water-resistant tape 24 hours a day for 3 to 5 days at a time. contact our chiropractic team to learn more about Kinesio taping’s potential to help you move, perform, and feel better.
