Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping

is a tool used by our physical therapists that can help speed up healing time. The tape stabilizes the muscles to help re-train them to move in the correct way. It also decompresses the skin, pulling it up allowing for increased circulation and taking pressure off the nerve endings. It can help decrease swelling and pain. 

It allows athletes to continue to compete while helping them to move properly and preventing a set back in their rehab. 

The tape does need to be applied by trained physicians as the specific placement of the tape on and around specific muscles is what will make the tape effective.
