The Kinesio Taping® Method, as originally developed by the Japanese Chiropractor, Dr Kenso Kase, is a definitive 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. Kinesio Taping® successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other musculoskeletal conditions. The Kinesio Taping® Method is a therapeutic taping technique offering patients the support they are looking for and rehabilitating the affected condition.
By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kinesio® Tex Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect increases the interstitial space and allows for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
Kinesio® Tape has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, enhance performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to full performance.
Kinesio® Tex Tape has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory systems, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities and is effective during the rehabilitative phases of an injury.
Kinesio® Tex Tape is used to:
• Re-educate the neuromuscular system
• Reduce pain
• Enhance performance
• Prevent injury
