Kinesio Taping & Therapeutic Taping

Kinesio Taping & Therapeutic Taping

How Does Kinesiotaping Work

Kinesiotape is elastic in nature, which is unlike athletic tape, a more rigid taping method. Kinesiotape is designed to be stretchy and serve as a gentle reminder to support your therapy through proper posture and movements. There are several different ways this reminder works to keep your muscles from forgetting your therapeutic lessons.

Corrects muscles. Kinesiology tape gently supports muscles during movement, providing just enough to give you more stamina and allow the muscles to heal correctly.

Better circulation. Proper taping can improve circulation and boost lymphatic flow when there is a problem. This leads to faster healing and recovery times.

Better joint movement. Keeping the joints moving on track is important for injury recovery and taping can help you maintain proper positioning outside of therapy.

Pain relief. There’s an analgesic effect to kinesiotaping. Yes, it’s similar to how children feel like a bandaid helps all injuries. Having tape on injured regions is comforting and provides the feeling of constant stretch.

Microscopic space. When the tape is applied to your skin, is rebounds slightly and creates a space between the skin and the tissue underneath, providing extra room for movement and blood flow.

Changing sensory signals. It’s believed that the use of tape changes the way your body’s sensory nervous system processes pain. By lifting the skin and relieving pressure from those tissues, the signals of pain are reduced.

When Is Kinesiotape Used

There are several different situations that may benefit from or even require kinesiotaping. If you’re a patient at Physical Therapists NYC, you’ll find that this is used in conjunction with your physical therapy and possibly other modalities to get the best results. We find that kinesiology tape works best for the following:

Treating injuries. If you’ve suffered an injury, kinesiology is especially useful to mitigate swelling and pain when paired with other treatments.

Supporting weakness. When muscles and joints are weak, no matter what the cause, taping can provide some extra support and even some enhanced performance.

Muscle reeducation. If you’ve lost function or you’re moving in ways that are unhealthy, taping can help you remember to practice new techniques.

Athletic performance. Professional and recreational athletes are realizing the benefits of taping and using them in different ways to enhance their performance in a safe and drug-free manner.
