You may have noticed athletes or runners in Sarasota with tape on their arms or legs. 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 soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
It has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory systems, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and is effective during the rehabilitative and chronic phases of an injury as well as being used for preventative measures. Taping also helps with performance especially in athletes.
