Elastic therapeutic taping, often called the Kinesio Taping Method, is a therapeutic and 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. It also can provide extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered by our doctors during your visit. This method successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions, and it not only offers the support patients are looking for, but also rehabilitation of the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, the taping method alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
