Athletic taping for specific injuries can help enhance the recovery of soft tissue injuries, shoulders, ankles and more. Unloading joints, bones, and muscles often help them heal without stressing the joint.
Athletic, or kinesiotape (stretchy tape), has several applications. The first would be to help reduce pain. We can tape to lessen the stress across a joint, muscle, or injury to allow it to relax more and reduce the pain. We can also use tape to promote stabilization of a joint, improving balance receptors in that area, then adding corrective movements to help improve the function of that limb or region.
Tape can also enhance the function and performance of a region of the body that has not been performing at 100%. Put simply, Kinesiotape has a multitude of uses. Visit our office, and see if this addition to your treatment or sport helps you achieve your goals.
