Kinesio Taping Method is a treatment technique using a specialized elastic tape that is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion, gives support and stability to joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. In contrast, traditional sports' taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event obstructing the flow of bodily fluids... an UNDESIRABLE side-effect.

Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. This technique is effective through the activation of the neurological and circulatory systems. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.

The combination of this technique and the specialized tape create unique effects on different body systems by supporting the elastic qualities of body tissues such as the skin and muscles. The utilization of Kinesio Taping can be an extremely beneficial tool along with chiropractic and other modalities can enhance the progression of healing with acute injuries, support chronic issues and regain function.

Kinesio Tape is used for many musculo-skeletal problems, from spine to extremity problems in addition lymphedema.
