Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping is one of the many forms of active care and rehabilitation. So what does it do? Well it utilizes neuromuscular feedback to help communicate information to your muscles and help provide information to your body to help you move more efficiently. All neuromuscular feedback means is the awareness and information your body receives from the kinesiology tape touching a muscle. So it is simple in theory. How can this help me? After having an evaluation to find out what sort of problems you may be having ranging from: low back pain, chronic posture pain and muscular distress, ITB pain, knee tracking and instability, poor circulation, slow healing time from a bruise, and also the need for proper muscle activation, etc. These are just a few things that Kinesiology tape can be utilized for! What are the benefits? It has been proven to have positive physiological effects on things such as ligaments, tendons, joints, muscles, fascia, lymphatic drainage and the circulatory system. An important thing to remember is that Kinesiology taping is not the same as “Athletic Tape” in that it does not IMMOBILIZE the joint or area in which it is applied, it assists and help provide in cues to help your body work efficiently and safely. The most impressive thing about this tape is that you can use it in conjunction with Graston, soft tissue, in your training adventures, and other rehabilitative efforts to help your body perform at it’s best!
