Kinesiotaping facilitates healing by gently lifting the skin away from sore or injured tissue which improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage.
It also supports injured joints and muscles without impeding range of motion.
Taping is safe for anyone from pediatric to geriatric. It can be worn for several days after an office visit and results include faster recovery and improved movement.
BENEFITS OF KINESIOTAPING INCLUDE:
- Muscle support
Proper taping improves the muscle’s ability to contract even when it’s weakened,
reduces a feeling of pain and fatigue, and protects the muscle from cramping,
over-extension and over-contraction.
- Removal of body fluid congestion
Kinesiology tape improves blood and lymphatic circulation and reduces
inflammation and excess chemical buildup in the tissue.
- Activation of the endogenous analgesic system
“Endogenous” refers to something that is self-originating, and “analgesic”
refers to that which relieves pain in a conscious person. Therefore, this
requirement means that the tape facilitates the body’s own healing
mechanisms, which is a central focus in chiropractic medicine.
- Correction of joint problems: The tape can be used to improve range
of motion and to adjust misalignments that result from tightened muscles.
