What Is Kinesio Taping?

Kinesio Taping Seattle

Alleviate symptoms from headaches to lower back pain with Kinesio Taping therapy at Glacier Chiropractic in Ballard, Seattle. Developed in 1973 by Dr. Kenzo Kase, Kinesio Tape was created out of the need for a hypoallergenic elastic adhesive medical tape that could be used as a preventative measure, treat pain, increase circulation, and prolong chiropractic treatment services. Different from sports tape and wrapping methods, Kinesio Tape’s elastic qualities increase the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The unique cotton fiber material helps target specific muscles and tendons to decrease pain and discomfort.

Professional Kinesiology Taping

Wrapping techniques are a skill to master and luckily Seattleites can experience for themselves how Kinesio taping can reduce discomfort associated with back pain, articular disorders, or injuries related to nerves, muscles, and organs. It can be used for many ailments such as:

  • Headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Edema
  • Joint Pain
  • Soft Tissue Pain
  • Injury Prevention

Provide Support For Muscles & Tendons

Kinesio Taping has been used by physical therapists, athletic trainers, physicians, nurses, and physiotherapists for over 40 years and has improved the everyday lives of those suffering chronic pains related to age, work, sports, or accidents. The Kinesio Taping Method has been shown to increase the body’s natural ability to heal itself by providing stabilizing support to tired, fatigued, or injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments. There’s no need to worry about the Kinesio Tape slipping off or having to be reapplied, as the adhesive is heat activated and designed to remain on the skin for several days after being applied. Kinesio Tape is safe for children and the elderly and can successfully alleviate symptoms associated with orthopedic, neuromuscular, and neurological medical conditions by essentially re-aligning the neuromuscular system, increasing circulation, and decreasing inflammation.
