Northern Hills Chiropractic is pleased to offer Kinesio Taping, here at our convenient North Calgary location. Kinesio taping is becoming one of the most popular rehabilitation and injury techniques for athletes of all calibers.
Kinesio Taping is a stabilizing method used to help improve the body’s natural healing process by supporting and increasing stability to muscles and joints, using a specialized elastic adhesive tape that was first developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in 1979. Kinesio Tape is latex-free, hypoallergenic and can be kept in place comfortably for extended periods. Unlike the typical methods for stabilizing injuries, such as wrapping, Kinesio Taping does not affect your range of motion or impede circulation in the area that is being treated. Kinesio taping is also used by athletes to prevent injury and to reduce post-activity swelling. Many athletes use Kinesio Taping to improve their overall performance and for optimum recovery after activity.
Kinesio Taping effectively alleviates pain and promotes lymphatic drainage by gently lifting the skin. In addition to being hypoallergenic, Kinesio Tape is water-resistant and can be worn for multiple days at a time before requiring replacement.
