Kinesiology Taping and Rocktape
Kinesiology tape, which is different from traditional athletic tape, can be used in conjunction with treatment to help decrease pain and promote tissue healing. Kinesiotape works by lifting the skin away from the underlying muscle and fascia, which reduces swelling by localized decompression. Additionally, the tape provides input to the central nervous system, which provides feedback to decrease pain and cue proper form.
There are several different brands of K-Tape, though we typically prefer to use RockTape in our office.
