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. The results can be remarkable. Kinesiology tape provides an extended therapeutic effect on the soft tissue sensors, assist pain relief and help prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within your clinic visit (i.e with Chiropractic adjustments, Trigenics treatment, soft tissue techniques).
Some of the benefits of Kinesiology Taping are:
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Re-educate the neuromuscular system
- Enhance performance
- Injury Prevention
- Promote good circulation and healing
Kinesiology taping can be used for a wide variety of conditions, and is suitable for all ages, it will not limit normal range of movement. Some of the conditions we regularly tape are whiplash, lumbar strains, poor posture, imbalances, knee, ankle and shoulder injuries, elbow and wrist problems.
At Motion Health Centre in the Sydney, CBD, we use the functional manual muscle testing approach used in the Trigenics®Myoneural Kinetic assessment to identify short and weak muscles, combined with Chiropractic and orthopedic evaluation to determine an appropriate Kinesiology taping protocol for you. Our Sports Chiropractors use either two high quality products Kinesio®Tex Tape or RockTape that are both latex free and hypo-allergenic. Because it is latex free it is able to stay on longer and not give the skin irritations other taping methods do.
