Kinesiology Taping



Kinesiology Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, the tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.



By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kinesiology Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.

Kinesiology Taping has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, optimize performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis. Superior results are achieved when Kinesiology Taping is combined with manual therapy and specific rehab exercises.

Kinesiology Taping is not appropriate for:
  • Open wounds
  • Infection
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Active cancer
  • Lower extremities of diabetics
  • Severe allergy to adhesives
  • Extremely thin skin
