Practitioners at Straight Up Health utilize taping methods to assist and support patients’ musculoskeletal conditions.
KINESIO TAPING METHOD
The Kinesio Taping Method 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 and providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. This also enable the individual to participate in his/her normal physical activities with functional assistance.
The Kinesio Taping Method is commonly used in rehabilitating the affected condition as well, preventing overuse or over-contraction and helping in facilitation of lymph flow by microscopically lifting the skin. Thus, increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
The Kinesio Taping Method is a famous therapeutic intervention for athletes, but any individual in populations ranging from paediatric to geriatric can be benefit from it.
