Taping Therapy to Eliminate Pain and Muscle disorders

What is Kinesiology Taping?

Kinesiology tape was developed in 1973 by Dr. Kenzo Kase, D.CKinesiology tape is a thin, stretchy, therapeutic tape that can benefit a wide variety of injuries and inflammatory conditions.  It is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows it to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of movement.  Unlike the tight restricting athletic or medical tape that we are most familiar with, Kinesiology tape promotes movement, is breathable and uses unique materials that allow the tape to function and stay in place for multiple days.  This tape is very popular with professional and Olympic athletes, and is now gaining in popularity with recreational athletes for both injury recovery and to enhance athletic performance.  The Physical Therapists at Synergy are skilled in the application and use of this innovative tape.

What are some of the outcomes of this treatment?

  • Lifts the Skin – helps relieve the pressure associated with swelling
  • Accelerates Bloodflow –speeding up the healing time to injured or affected areas
  • Stabilizes –stabilization without the restriction of movement allows you to remain active
  • Tactile Cueing – it can remind the skin and muscle what the proper movement patterns should be
