Kinesio Taping – Denver & Lone Tree
Kinesio-Taping or K-taping can be a helpful treatment for chronic and acute pain syndromes and is used therapeutically as a complement to other therapies. This unique method uses an elastic cotton tape that is attached to the immediate area of a painful muscle, ligament, or joint to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, while allowing support and stability to the muscles and joints without restricting range of motion. It is designed to prolong the benefits of manual therapy in a clinical setting.
The theory behind taping is to re-educate the neuromuscular system and reduce pain. In turn, this leads to enhanced performance, better circulation, less pain and assists in returning the body to homeostasis. The method works by lifting the skin to create space that facilitates lymphatic flow and relieve pressure from the body’s pain receptors that cause inflammation.
