Kinesio Taping has taken the rehabilitation and sports medicine world by storm. Widely used by elite athletes, Kinesio Taping has established a worldwide reputation as the most trusted name in therapeutic taping.
Kinesio taping can be used to cut injury time and is a useful tool in pain management, lymphatic drainage, joint alignment and muscle reconditioning.
How does it work?
Pain – reduces pain by taking pressure off the pain receptors.
Lymphatic – eliminates lymphatic fluid/bruising beneath the skin.
Joint – adjusts misalignment to aid fascia & muscle function.
Muscle – reconditions abnormal tension & strengthens muscle.
The Kinesio Taping method is fundamentally different from traditional athletic taping. It involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support whilst maintaining full range of motion. It reduces muscle fatigue, inflammation and pain, corrects posture and protects against further injury.
Kinesio Taping is a complimentary service when performed during one of our physiotherapy or sports massage treatment and will enhance and prolong the benefits of your treatment.
Repeat taping is available in a 10-minute appointment for a fee of £5.
