Kinesiology Taping

What is it?

Elastic therapeutic tape, also called kinesiology tape, Kinesio tape, k-tape, Rock Tape or KT, is an elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that is used to treat pain and disability from athletic injuries and a variety of other physical disorders.  It’s designed to help with facial tightness, improve your muscles ability to function and support injured structures.

How does it Work?

Kinesiology taping creates a lift that unloads the underlying tissues. Decompressing those tissues can change the signals going to the brain thus leading to relief of pain. It also helps in supporting structures, aids with postural deficits, and assists with lymphatic drainage when applied properly. Our entire staff, here at Fyzical, are trained with different techniques and uses of kinesotape.

What is it used for?

  • Supporting weak zones
  • Treating injuries
  • Re-educating muscles
  • Enhancing performance
  • Managing scars

What to expect ? 

With Kinesiology taping you should feel relief of your pain and improved function pretty much immediately after it is applied. Kinesotape can be left on for 3-5 days as long as it doesn’t cause irriation to the skin.
