Taping Techniques

Therapeutic taping helps prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered during your physical therapy session. It is non-restrictive, allowing for full range of motion, and is applied to reduce pain/inflammation, relax overused and tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24 hours/day basis. Medical practitioners and athletes around the world use taping to aid in their recovery and return to pain free activity.

Taping is used for shoulder to foot problems and everything in between. Examples include: carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre- and post-surgical edema, and ankle sprains. It is also used as an athletic preventative injury method, and as a support method.
