How can Kinesio taping benefit me?
We use a variety of exercises and modalities in our therapy plans to address your specific needs, whatever they may be. Among these modalities, Kinesio taping is used to support your joints, muscles and tendons to help improve your mobility.
Our physical therapist will perform Kinesio taping by placing the strips of tape on the affected area of your body, as well as any other places where you may be experiencing pain or stiffness.

So, how does Kinesio taping work?
Kinesio taping can do several important things for the body. Firstly, it provides support to an injured or painful part of the body by resetting the circuitry in that area to correct any dysfunctional interactions between skin, muscles, joints and tendons. This leads to more efficiency and stability.
In addition, Kinesio taping can help block pain receptors in your brain, allowing your muscles to loosen and reducing the likelihood of spasms. Pain constricts an affected area, but if the pain is taken away, it helps blood flow more freely and improves movement.
What are the biggest advantages of Kinesio taping?
There are many reasons why Kinesio taping may be useful to you in your healing journey. These include, but are not limited to:
Managing scar tissue
When trauma has occurred from surgery or an injury, scar tissue forms over the injured area. This can cause problems with controlling signals in the muscles there, which can hinder movement. Kinesio taping is a technique that helps provide a stretch to the scar tissue and makes it much easier for your body to communicate. This can help you increase your mobility.
If a person has any joint pains or conditions, Kinesio taping could assist in stabilizing the joints as well as support them to have necessary movement.
One primary benefit of Kinesio taping is pain relief. By blocking pain receptors, the brain no longer receives pain messages about the affected area and the muscles can relax. When this happens, your mobility will improve, along with quicker healing and can make the whole treatment process more comfortable.
If you’re dealing with swelling after a surgery, injury or overuse of a part of your body, Kinesio taping can be an effective treatment! By limiting the amount of pressure on the skin and underlying tissues, the tape helps to reduce swelling. This means that fluid is able to pass through more freely, helping your body to heal faster and restore movement in the affected area.
