Kinesiotape is a flexible, elastic tape made especially for adhering to human skin. Like a strong second skin, the tape holds joints in place, while providing an extra layer of support to skeletal muscles.
It’s proven effective for short-term pain relief, too. Find out if kinesiotaping can help you at TRI Physical Therapy in Brooklyn.
Kinesiotape is a revolutionary physical therapy treatment that combines the science of anatomy, physiology and body mechanics. The tape helps your body heal itself by providing support to areas where your muscles are weak and the pain overwhelming.
Brooklyn physiotherapy doctors usually recommend kinesiotaping treatment in conjunction with other treatments, such as:
- Manual therapy
- Electrical stimulation
- Physical exercises
- Physical therapy exercises for back pain
By using the tape correctly, you get immediate relief from pain, even within hours of an injury. Unlike conventional supports, the tape doesn’t constrict movement. Instead, the elasticity of the fabric tape allows you to move about naturally, while simultaneously supporting the injured muscle.
