Kinesio Taping

What is Kinesio Tape?

Kinsesio_Tape_Falls_Chuch_VA.jpg

For over 25 years, Kinesio has provided comfort and stability to our loyal users. Kinesio Tape offers patients a more gentle approach to rehabilitation than those provided by conventional athletic tape.  On the heels of our unprecedented publicity and positive feedback from the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, we here at Kinesio would like to invite you to experience what athletes and medical practitioners around the world are calling the rehabilitative and enhancement tool. 

Kinesio Tape is a Latex free, non-medicated, thin, porous cotton fabric with a medical grade acrylic adhesive. The tape is comprised of elastic qualities which are designed for a 30-40% longitudinal only stretch when applied. Our bodies were designed to move and the Kinesio Taping Technique promotes movement and motion. With Kinesio Tape, we are not only limited to supporting and stabilizing musculature, but allowed to provide rehabilitation while encouraging movement!

How it Works:

Kinesio_Tape_Falls_Church_22046.jpegThe technique relies heavily on insertions and origins of muscles. The built-in stretch of the tape can help stabilize injured muscles, support fatigued, weakened and/or strained muscles, and can also help facilitate a stretch for those muscles in spasm.

In addition to muscle support, Kinesio Tape can lift the skin to increase the space between the skin and muscle. This reduced localized pressure in the affected area helps promote circulation, lymphatic drainage, and lessen the irritation on the subcutaneous neural pain receptors. As an end result, the Kinesio Taping Technique reduces pain and inflammation.

Since the introduction of Kinesio Tape in the United States, medical practitioners such as PTs, ATCs, OTs, DCs, MTs and MDs have recognized and embraced this effective, safe and best of all, easy-to-use modality. The method and tape allow the individual to receive the therapeutic benefits 24 hours a day with both comfort and ease because it can be worn for several days per application. Currently,  Kinesio Tape is being used in hospitals, clinics, high schools, colleges, professional sports teams, and even at the Olympic level!

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
