Got A Sports Injury? Kinesio Taping/Rock Tape Could Help You Feel Better, Faster
Kinesio taping is a form of physiotherapy. It helps with relieving pain, promoting recovery, increasing mobility, and also improving range of motion. Most importantly, it can help you return to doing the things you enjoy!
What Are The Benefits Of Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio taping aids in the restoration of function by restoring broken connections between the skin and the muscles, joints, and tendons beneath it.
During Kinesio taping, pain receptors become blocked from reaching the brain. Because pain signals can’t be received, the likelihood of spasms is lessened. The muscles in the affected area will relax.
Blood flow and movement become restricted because of pressure. However, once pressure is gone, blood flow and mobility will be restored.
There are many reasons why taping may be useful to you in your healing journey!
Scar tissue management
Healing from trauma can cause a thick band of scar tissue to develop around the affected area, which can obstruct movement signals. Kinesio taping can stretch your scar tissue, making movement signals more easily communicated and therefore increasing your mobility.
Taping helps to decrease swelling caused by surgery, injury, or overuse. It works by limiting the pressure between the skin and the tissues underneath. This allows any buildup of fluid to travel freely and promotes better movement of the affected area.
The brain does not receive painful messages from the affected area because pain receptors are suppressed. Muscles relax and allow for more mobility, quicker recovery, and a more relaxing treatment experience overall.
It can be challenging at times for your joints to stay in position. Kinesio tape aids in the stabilization and support of these joints while also still allowing them to move within their normal range of motion.
How Does A Session Of Kinesio Taping Work?
Our Newton, Surrey, Fleetwood, and Langley physiotherapists will perform a complete examination. This assessment will help them determine if Kinesio taping is the best option for your treatment plan.
The tape will also be placed on any other areas of your body that feel stiff or uncomfortable. Your therapist will also include a range of workouts and techniques into their therapy regimens based on your specific needs.
Many of our patients have discovered that this treatment method has assisted them in returning to a normal daily routine with no residual discomfort or stiffness!
