What is Kinesio Taping?

This method is designed to help the body’s natural healing process.  Not only does it allow support and stability to the muscles and the joints… it doesn’t restrict the body’s range of motion.  So, as the Kinesio Tape is doing its job you continue living life and doing.  Plus, this method extends soft tissue manipulation to heighten the benefits of the manual therapy we do at the Damany Center.

 

The following quote was taken from the Kinesio Taping brochure:

By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, the 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 decreased inflammation.

 

Because Kinesio Tape can be left on for several days and up to a week this method offers benefits to the patient 24 hours a day…. significantly accelerating  the healing process.
