Kinesiology taping is a taping technique applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, eliminate swelling and bruising, support muscles, and aid with muscle contraction while an injury is healing. Kinesiology tape provides support as well as healing without restricting range of motion or blood flow. Although the media has primarily associated kinesiology taping with athletes, the majority of its applicants are non athletes. Kinesiology taping can be used for treating a variety of conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, knee pain, shoulder conditions, hamstring injuries, and rotator cuff injuries. It can be an important part of our patient’s post-injury or postoperative recuperation and our physical therapists have seen great improvements in their patients rehabilitation throughout the use of kinesiology tape. Both of our therapists, Ginger and Steve, are skilled in the use and application of this important rehabilitative tool.
