Kinesio taping can be traced back to the 1970’s when Dr. Kase was searching for a method to ease strained muscles and joints. This taping method has been used for decades by athletes and others who are attempting to ease their joint and muscle discomfort, as well as back pain experienced late in pregnancy. Kinesio taping should only be performed under the supervision of a trained physician. They will guide you on placement, frequency and duration of your therapy plan based on your pain history.
Kinesio taping earned its claim to fame in the 1988 Olympics – unlike its sports tape counterparts, kinesio offers more flexibility and range of motion than others. Regularly scheduled chiropractic adjustments, in addition to kinesio tape therapy, can prolong the health and repair of your joints and muscles. While chiropractic care maintains proper alignment of the human body, kinesio tape helps maintain muscle placement and movement between appointments.
