Kinesio Taping Q&A

What is Kinesio Taping?

Kinesio Taping at Integrated Chiropractic uses advanced Kinesio® Tex Gold Tape technology to reposition or better support tissues, reduce discomfort, stimulate healing, and lower your chance of future injuries.

For more than 25 years, Kinesio Taping has enhanced sports medicine, sports performance, and pain management; your provider may use it as part of a rehabilitation program. Kinesio Taping works by sticking to your skin and lifting it, repositioning targeted tissues for pain relief.

What are the benefits of Kinesio Taping?

At Integrated Chiropractic, Dr. Joseph uses Kinesio Tex Gold Tape to:

  • Re-educate your neuromuscular system
  • Reduced pain
  • Improve musculoskeletal functioning
  • Enhance sports performance 
  • Prevent injuries
  • Enhance healing
  • Improve circulation

Kinesio Taping methods facilitate your body’s natural healing process while enhancing the stability of musculoskeletal tissues without restricting the range of motion. 

These methods effectively treat orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological, and numerous other medical conditions. Kinesio Tex Tape protocols at Integrated Chiropractic training produce unsurpassed results.

Well-known Japanese practitioner Dr. Kenzo Kase, a skilled licensed Chiropractor and Acupuncturist, developed Kinesio Tex Tape in response to limitations he encountered while using rigid sports taping methods. Kinesio Tape has a texture and elasticity similar to living human skin. Its unique properties stem from kinesiology studies.

Is Kinesio Taping right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for Kinesio Taping, Dr. Joseph reviews your symptoms and medical history with you. He completes a physical exam and may recommend that you undergo X-rays or other imaging procedures to diagnose the cause of injuries and pain.

What should I expect during Kinesio Taping?

The process of Kinesio Taping is simple, fast, and painless. Dr. Joseph places the flexible tape in strategic areas of your body to lift or reposition targeted tissues. Leave the tape on your skin as directed by Dr. Joseph and replace it as needed.

In addition to Kinesio Taping, he could suggest you try physical therapy, massage, myofascial release, chiropractic adjustments, near-infrared light therapy, corrective exercises, or other holistic treatments to reduce pain and improve overall musculoskeletal functioning.
