The Kinesio Taping Method has taken the rehabilitation and sports medicine world by storm. Developed by Dr Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago in Japan, it has quickly become the gold standard for therapeutic rehabilitative taping. The proprietary method of taping uses a uniquely designed and patented tape for treatment of muscular disorders and lymphoedema reduction.
The Kinesio Taping Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. The first technique gives the practitioner the opportunity to actually give support while maintaining full range of motion. This enables the patient to participate in their normal physical activity with functional assistance. The second technique, which is most commonly used in the acute stage of rehabilitation, helps prevent overuse or over-contraction. Correctional techniques include mechanical, lymphatic, ligament/tendon, fascia and functional. Kinesio Taping can be used in conjunction with other therapies including cryotherapy, massage therapy and electrical stimulation.
We have found it very effective with chronic muscle and joint problems. It is especially useful for those who have to return to sport or other physical demands before reaching a plateau in care or for chronic recurrent problems.
