Kinesio Taping with our Orlando Chiropractors at Summit Chiropractic
Imagine suffering an injury. You’re walking in Orlando and fall. It’s a simple error, but that fall leads to the misalignment of your spine. Your muscles function, but they’re not moving correctly. This begins to lead to injury and pain each day. Eventually, you decide to go to a chiropractor. This is a good choice, because there are treatment plans that can help you. Our chiropractor has a variety of ways to help, from traditional spinal realignment techniques to using K-taping to help you in and outside the office. If you’re not familiar with K-taping, you should get to know it. It’s a helpful addition to chiropractic services and may help you heal and recover faster than if you don’t support your injury.
What Is K-Taping?
K-taping, also known as kinesio taping, is a process in which your chiropractor tapes certain parts of the body for added support and to encourage the movement of blood and lactic acid. The tape is designed to run along the contours of the skin. Its design reduces friction between the skin and tissues, encouraging the free movement of the lymphatic system. K-taping was designed in the 1970s by a Japanese chiropractor named Kenzo Kase.
What Does K-Taping Help With?
K-taping has a few different things it can help with. Primarily, it’s designed to lift the tension out of muscles and to stimulate the areas where it is. If you tape an area with an injury, for instance, the tape allows for better blood flow and movement, even supporting joints or muscles as they heal.
- Alleviates pain
- Relaxes the muscles
- Enhances performance
- Supports muscles
- Reduces inflammation
Why Does My Chiropractor Use K-Taping?
Our chiropractor offers K-taping as a way to improve your circulation and provide support to your muscles. K-taping may also help support a better posture and alignment, providing patients with confidence that they’re moving correctly. Your chiropractor may offer K-taping to encourage decreased inflammation, muscle relaxation and enhanced performance, depending on the reason for your visit.
