Kinesio Taping


Gainesville Kinesio Taping

Kinesio taping techniques were developed by Kenzo Kase, DC in Japan for the treatment of a wide variety of neuromuscular and myofascial applications including lymphatic drainage, mechanical correction of joints, stabilization of ligaments and tendons and the inhibition and facilitation of muscles and fascia. Popularized by Olympic athletes, this technique is the cutting edge of modern physical therapy. At Helping Hands Chiropractic Center, David Salhanick, MS, CSCS, LMT, CKTP, our rehabilitation coordinator provides this valuable therapy to our patients.

Kinesio tape promotes movement and circulation and enables the body to perform its normal functions as much as possible even in the event of muscular injury or overexertion. If you are suffering from muscular injuries, the use of the kinesio tape will help reduce the probability of you developing inflammation, edema, and other types of discomforts. It promotes movement, helping you go about your daily routine in almost the same manner as you normally do without the injury. It also does not hinder the circulation, making you feel more comfortable and as if nothing is stuck on your skin.

The Kinesio tape is made from a hundred percent cotton, is latex-free, is heat-sensitive, is acrylic-adhesive, is water-resistant, is medical-grade, has almost the same thickness as normal human skin, is elastic, is more practical to have, and is said to be effective in myriads of illnesses and injuries.
