Kinesio tape is a powerful taping method that helps stabilize joints and assist weak muscles. It can be applied to any area of the body and replaces traditional athletic tape.
Kinesio tape is strong, elastic, and light weight.
It allows the user nearly free range of motion and
provides lift and support where most needed. And
because the tape is water resistant it is durable enough
to stay on the skin for 3 to 5 days.
You don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to use Kinesio
tape! Whether you are training for a marathon or just
need a little extra help with your everyday routine -
Kinesio Tape works for you. In our office we use Kinesio
Tape as a complementary procedure to assist with the
regular chiropractic and therapy treatments.

Clinically we see a lot of positive results with Kinesio Tape. This includes common running injuries like ITB inflammation, hip pain, knee pain, Achilles/calf pain, and plantar fasciitis. It also works very well with lower back pain, upper back/neck pain, shoulder problems, and posture correction.
If you feel like your training or everyday routine is ‘off the norm’, consider adding Kinesio Tape to your Chiropractic experience.
