Taping Kinesiology Chiropractic Treatments In West Dorset

Taping, also known as kinesiology taping or muscle taping, is a type of physical therapy treatment that involves the use of special adhesive tape to support and stabilize muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The tape is applied to the skin in a specific pattern and can help reduce inflammation, promote healing, and improve muscle function.

What Is Kinesiology taping

Kinesiology tape is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that is applied to the skin in specific patterns to help support muscles and joints, reduce pain, and improve circulation and healing.

It is often used in sports medicine and physical therapy to treat a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.

When the tape is applied to the skin, it creates a lift, or tension, on the underlying tissues. This lift can help to alleviate pressure and strain on muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and can also help to improve circulation and reduce inflammation.

The tape is designed to be worn for several days at a time and is water-resistant, so it can be worn during showers and physical activity.

Techniques Used When applying kinesiology tape

There are many different techniques for applying kinesiology tape, and the specific pattern and placement of the tape will depend on the specific injury or condition being treated. The tape is typically applied in a specific direction on the skin to mimic the direction of the muscle fibers, and it can be stretched to various degrees depending on the desired level of support and lift.

Overall, kinesiology tape is a safe and non-invasive treatment option that can be used to help support and stabilize muscles and joints, reduce pain, and improve circulation and healing.
