The application of kinesiology tape to the body is a taping technique, whose purpose is to rehabilitate and facilitate the body’s natural healing process while at the same time providing support and stability to muscles and joints. K tape achieves this without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing a degree of extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
Our therapists are expert at applying Kinesiology Tape to reduce pressure on soft tissues and provide support to muscles by improving the muscle’s ability to contract, even when is weak. This assists and helps the muscle to not over-extend or over-contract. K taping works to alleviate pain and facilitate lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. The lifting effect forms increases the interstitial space thus allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
