Kinesio taping is used in a variety of health care services. Notable endorsements for Kinesio-taping include world class athletes including Lance Armstong, David Beckam, Kerri Walsh, and Serena Williams.
Kinesio taping gives support for your joints and muscles. It also helps decrease pain and improve lymph drainage and the flow of blood through your joints and muscles.
Our chiropractors at Balderston Chiropractic are trained in the application of kinesio tape.
Taking stress away from joints, allows all systems to function properly.
When this happens, inflammation and pain decrease. Patients notice a fuller range if motion and strength. Kinesio taping is different from traditional taping methods. In the past, taping was about reducing motion in order to stabilize the joint. Today, the tape is applied in such a way so that it compresses underlying structures. This gives you more motion while supporting injured or vulnerable areas.
It is used by high profile athletes but has found favor with athletes at all levels. It is particularly helpful with high school and college athletes who are recovering from an injury. They appreciate the support and confidence it gives them, going out again with a lower risk of injury.
