Kinesiotaping​

Kinesiotaping is a technique that involves applying elastic therapeutic tape to muscles and joints. It provides support, stability, and pain relief, while promoting natural movement and reducing inflammation.

FAQs

Kinesiotaping, is a therapeutic technique that involves applying a specialized elastic tape onto the skin to support muscles, joints, and soft tissues. It aims to facilitate the body's natural healing process, reduce pain, improve circulation, and enhance proprioception (awareness of body position) without restricting movement.

Kinesiotaping works by lifting the skin slightly, creating a space between the skin and the underlying tissues. This space can help to reduce pressure on pain receptors, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and promote better movement. Additionally, the tape's elastic properties can provide support to muscles and joints without limiting range of motion.

Kinesiotaping can be used for a wide range of conditions, including muscle strains, ligament sprains, joint instability, postural issues, swelling reduction, sports injuries, and rehabilitation after surgeries. It's also used in sports performance settings to provide support and enhance muscle activation during physical activities.

Kinesiology tape is applied by stretching and placing it onto the skin in specific patterns and directions, depending on the desired therapeutic effect. It's important to clean and dry the skin before application. The tape's elasticity allows it to be applied with varying levels of tension to achieve the desired outcome, such as supporting a muscle or relieving pain.

Kinesiotaping is generally safe and suitable for people of various ages and activity levels. However, it's important to consult a healthcare professional before using kinesiology tape, especially if you have skin sensitivities, allergies, or certain medical conditions. Proper application techniques and tape selection are crucial for achieving the intended therapeutic benefits.

“Donna is a very skilled and compassionate therapist. I have had the pleasure of working with her throughout my therapy. She listens to you and your concerns, really knows her craft and tailors each session to the individual. She watches you to make sure you are performing the exercises correctly and makes no bones about telling you when you are not doing them properly. I broke my femur and also injured my knee replacement. I could barely walk at all after coming home from the hospital. I was extremely tight and in a lot of pain. She started my sessions with easy exercises and as I progressed made them a little more challenging. She improvises at times and uses a variety of objects to help in therapy. Donna is very outgoing, makes you feel at ease immediately, and is very witty. I didn’t want my therapy to end as I looked forward to seeing and talking with her. I am now walking around without any assistive devices and continue my sessions on my own. I highly recommend Donna for your physical therapy needs. You won’t regret it! Thank you Donna for helping me heal and pushing me to do better! I give Ortho Physical Therapy Solutions 5 stars!!”
