Kinesio Taping

The kinesio taping method is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process and to provide extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system., the tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for decreased inflammation.
