Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. It can be used to decrease pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in unrestricted movement.

 

Who Can Benefit from Kinesio Taping?

Kinesio Taping (also known as “KT Taping”) can be used as an adjunctive treatment for any patient with mechanical pain, but works particularly well with overuse injuries. Any area of soft tissue (muscle or tendon) can be taped. Spear therapists may use Kinesio Taping with the following conditions:

  • Shin splints
  • Tendonitis
  • To reinforce posture
  • Edema control (swelling)
  • Muscle pain

 

How Does Kinesio Taping Work?

Taping the body activates proprioceptors, or sensory receptors that provide information about the position of the body and its parts in space at a particular moment in time. When these get turned on, a message goes out to the brain to improve muscle function and in return, decrease the amount of pain you are experiencing.

Once your therapist measures, cuts and places the tape on your body, it can be worn for up to a week, with no limit to range of motion, and virtually no limitations (you can shower with it, work out with it, etc.). Tape is designed to be waterproof and friction resistant.

What does Kinesio Taping in NYC COST?
