Even the smallest injury can slow your physical activity level. A muscle strain, repetitive use injury or overuse injury interferes with your ability to practice your sports, exercise, and work. Kinesio Tape is a gentle and effective way to reduce pain and inflammation and support your body as you heal. Our Ford City and Kittanning chiropractor evaluate your injury and then determine the proper application of the Kinesio Tape. The tape is stretchy, yet sticky so it quickly adheres to the skin. The tape gently lifts the skin to increase circulation and lymphatic flow. This lifting reduces inflammation and decreases your pain. If a muscle has been overstretched, the Kinesio Tape application helps to contract the muscle into a healthier position. If your muscle is overly tight, the Kinesio Tape stretches the fibers to increase your range of motion. Through the additional support of the Kinesio Tape, you are able to move freely and without as much pain.
