Physical Therapy and Kinesiology Taping
Where cutting edge technology meets old-school pain management, you’ll find an innovative remedy such as Kinesiology taping. The process uses elastic therapeutic tape, which is exponentially more stretchable than traditional types of elastic bandage. Once this tape is stretched out and then secured around the problematic area, the tape will exert a therapeutic pulling force, while still allowing you free range of motion.
The acrylic adhesive component in Kinesiology tape is activated by body heat, meaning that as soon as your physical therapist applies the taping system, it will begin working. Yet the cotton fibers that also comprise the material wick moisture away. That means that sweating and getting the area wet isn’t as much of an issue as it was with the “ace” bandages injured athletes and other patients were once given.
