kinesio Tape Treatment
Assist Your Body’s Healing Process
Pain and Injury
Kinesio tape is a decompression tape that lifts the skin and superficial fascia from deeper layers of tissue. Pain receptors are free from pressure caused by inflammation. Because the tissue is lifted, pain signals are slowed on their way to the brain. In addition, the lymphatic system is freed up and able to efficiently drain thereby reducing swelling.
Chronic pain not due to injury can seem like a mystery. A postural imbalance may be the underlying cause. A postural imbalance (or muscle imbalance) forms when we hold our bodies in a particular pattern for extended periods of time. For example, a coder who sits at a desk for extended periods of time or a mechanic who works over head all day. What happens is the muscles becomes particularly tight over time and the muscles that do the opposite motion then becomes weak. Sitting all day at a desk with slumped shoulders causes the pectoral muscles get very tight. Over time the muscles in the upper back become weak. This characteristically causes pain between the shoulder blades and in the neck.
Kinesio tape works 24 hours a day as long as the tape is applied. It is a neurological stimulation causing constant messages to be relayed to the brain about where your body is in space.
Kinesio Taping helps in awareness of posture, re-education of the muscles, fascial correction and proprioceptive stabilization. Correct application of Kinesio Tape frequently on an individual with chronic pain due to poor posture could gradually improve posture. Results are best achieved when combined with a strengthening program.
Get ready to improve performance and reduce recovery time! Lactic acid build-up can cause poor muscle performance, fatigue, cramping and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Taping helps to flush out the metabolic buildup and get your muscles ready for action. Kinesio tape mimics skin in its texture and consistency and provides passive support physically and neurologically.
