KINESIO TAPING

The Kinesio Taping Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion as well as providing extended so tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting

Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.

The Kinesio Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique not only offering your patient the support they are looking for but also rehabilitating the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kinesio Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifing the skin.

Other traditional taping techniques are also available at Barnes Practice;

  • Compression strapping

  • Preventative strapping

  • Offload taping

This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin, increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
