denver chiropractor that does kinesio tapingWhat is Kinesio Tape?

K tape is a popular type of tape that is used to help heal the body from acute painful conditions to chronic overuse conditions. It can be applied to basically any part of the body in any number of patterns. In general, it takes a certain level training and understanding to learn to apply the tape yourself. What make k tape unique is its elastic capabilities, and addition of a finger print like pattern on the under side of the tape. The two qualities combined can help in many different ways to rid the body of pain or dysfunction.

How Does Kinesio Tape Work?

Here is a list of the various ways the tape can help an individual. This is based on my clinical experience.

1. Influencing muscple spindle fibers to help change the brains sense of muscle tension.
2. Influencing golgi tendon organs to help improve proprioception of the area.
3. Improves local vascular circulation.
4. Improves local lymphatic circulation.
5. Improves psychosamatic well being.
6. Decreases nociceptive stimulation, thus decreasing pain.
7. Increases surrounding healthy mechanoreceptive stimulation.
8. Provides a medium for topical analgesic, anti-inflammatory, or other substances.
9. Providing 4-6 days of continued use.
10. Helps retain heat, increasing the temperature to the taped area.kinesio tape for neck pain
11. Provides support to weak, healing areas.

In simple terms, it helps circulation, it helps support muscles, and stimulates an accelerated healing response. If you are interested to see if you can benefit from Kinesio tape therapy, we would love to help.
