Dealing with Muscle Pain or Discomfort? Try Kinesiotaping.

Kinesiotaping®, named for the kinesiology field, utilizes an elastic form of tape that does not restrict motion. Kinesiotaping® involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support, or to prevent over-contraction. Kinesiotaping® affects the activation of the neurological system, the body's information processor and the circulatory system.

Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body, they also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows and body temperature. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms. Thus Kinesiotaping® is utilized to increase lymphatic drainage, reduce edema and swelling, facilitate muscular contraction, and manage pain.

How Can Kinesiotaping® Help Me?

Kinesiotaping® aids patients with a variety of muscle-oriented issues, including:

  • Improving the contraction of weakened muscles
  • Reducing muscle fatigue and spasms
  • Reducing over-stretching and over-contraction of muscles
  • Re-educating muscles through sensory feedback
  • Lessening edema (swelling) by aiding the lymphatic system
  • Minimizing post-traumatic or post-surgical bruising through improved circulation
  • Helping mobilize scar tissue by enhancing glide between tissue layers
  • Helping correct joint mechanics by aiding muscle function around the joint
  • Relieving pain by activating the natural analgesic system in our skin receptors
