Kinesio Tape

Kinesio Taping is a procedure that utilizes a special tape that helps to support chiropractic adjustments while still allowing for free range of motion within the muscles.  The tape is very thin and the wave like glue pattern allows the skin to be lifted from the affected area.

There are a number of benefits to Kinesio taping that far outweigh traditional taping methods of the past.  These include:

  • Muscle Support: Kinesio tape supports the muscle’s ability to contract. This can relieve any pain or fatigue felt in the muscle and prevents cramping.
  • Joint Corrections: Using the tape properly will increase the range of motion in your joints and loosen your muscles.
  • Self Healing: There is no medicine or drugs in Kinesio tape. It instead works by allowing your body to heal itself.
  • Allowing Flow of Body Fluids: Kinesio tape promotes and improves blood and lymphatic circulation.  This will reduce inflammation in your body’s tissue.

At Hargrave Chiropractic, sports chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Hargrave, DC has extensive knowledge and training in Kinesio taping.  You may have noticed a lot of athletes using Kinesio tape on television. However, Kinesio taping is not just for professional athletes.  It can be used by anyone seeking to manage pain, relax the muscles or reduce inflammation.
