What is Kinesiology Taping?
A healing process that provides both stability and support to joints and muscles is known as Kinesiology Taping. This process does not restrict the range of motion within the body. It offers the patient a great amount of support as well as rehabilitation. It is known to be a therapeutic technique that targets receptors within the somatosensory system. It is the perfect treatment to relax muscles and you can have this treatment done by an experienced chiropractor. You can visit us here at Secrest Family Chiropractic in Scottsdale, AZ to relieve your pain.
Benefits of Kinesiology Taping
Some great benefits come with Kinesiology Taping that anyone can take advantage of. Kinesiology taping is great for reducing swelling of knees, ankles and anywhere inflammation occurs. Physiological effects on the skin as well as muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons, and joints are just some benefits. It has great effects on the lymphatic and circulatory systems as well. You can use this technique alongside other treatments offered by a chiropractor to help with healing injuries.
To get the best results from Kinesiology Taping, evaluation and assessment are both necessary. Sometimes depending on your condition, other treatments may be needed to tackle an underlying medical condition. Gait assessment, muscle testing, and range of motion testing are all a part of the assessment that a chiropractor will give his or her patient. These assessments enable proper treatment plans to be laid out.
What is it used for?
Kinesiology Taping is used for:
- Treating injuries- If you have been injured, therapists use this method as a part of a treatment plan. It is great to minimize both pain and swelling.
- Supporting weak spots- This is a great method to give joints and muscles extra support. It enables you to move normally. It enhances both endurance and movement. It also helps improve the permeance of fatigued muscles.
- Re-train muscles- This method is also great for muscles that have experienced a decrease in function. Kinesiology Taping can correct posture in both your neck and head.
- Scar management- This method should never be used on an open wound. However, it can improve the appearance of scars long-term. This is especially true for scars that are a result of injury or surgery.
Many people experience both mild to moderate gains after Kinesiology Taping especially when combined with conventional treatment methods.
