Kinesio Taping/Rocktape are therapeutic taping techniques that have been in use for many years to promote healing. These methods utilize a latex-free tape that is able to be worn for 3-5 days. The tape is strategically applied in order to ease pain, encourage the natural healing process of the body, stabilize & balance muscles and joints without restricting range of motion, and promote a reduction in the inflammation of an affected area. Because the tape is able to be left on for a few days, the benefits provided by manual therapy and soft tissue mobilization by your therapist are continued well after you leave the clinic. Kinesio Tape/Rocktape can to be applied in many ways to many areas and can be used to treat a wide variety of injuries and symptoms. By changing the shape, direction, and amount of stretch incorporated into the placement, your therapist can target your specific needs. Whether you are looking to reduce pain, lessen inflammation, promote circulation, prevent injury, or optimize performance, a certified taping practitioner can help.
