Kinesio Taping

NEW AT JERNIGAN CHIROPRACTIC CLINC

KINESIO TAPING

Kinesio Taping has been around for more than 25 years, and is currently breaking new ground in the fields of physical therapy, sports medicine, chiropractic, and athletic performance.

We use Kinesio Tape to help support injured spinal areas and extremities when we feel it is necessary. We also treat many athletes and performers that require special taping procedures to protect chronic injuries during competition or performance.

Bottom Line: Kinesio Taping and chiropractic are a perfect match...and we are proud to offer it to our patients.

Kinesio Taping can :

  • Reduce pain
  • Promote enhanced circulation and reduce inflammation
  • Relax and support muscles and joints
  • Correct muscle function
  • Speed healing
  • Support subluxated joints
  • Optimize performance
  • Help protect and prevent injured muscles and ligament

What is Kinesio Taping?
The Kinesio Taping Method is a taping technique applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles,

and to facilitate muscles in movement. Because Kinesio Tape is a non-restrictive, highly elastic type of tape, it allows for full range of motion and function, unlike traditional sports tape. It provides stabilization and support during not only sporting events, but during daily activity also. Kinesio Tape is a multifaceted technique that can be used to treat any injury head to toe!

 

“A Longer Lasting Effect”
Kinesio Tape is a “light modality”. In rehabilitative applications it works continuously and can provide an additional 2-3 day relief after therapy. Kinesio Tape does not mask symptoms, but instead promotes healing in a variety of ways. Because your therapist cannot provide treatment and a hands on approach to you at all times, Kinesio Taping is like having healing hands to put on the injured area 24-7.

During the late 1970s, when Dr. Kenzo Kase was developing the KTM, his research sparked interest throughout the health care community. It wasn’t long before he was asked to share his findings and to provide information so other practitioners could extend the benefits to their own patients. From the very beginning, Dr. Kase grasped the importance of having a community of practitioners and instructors to share their progress and provide a standard for the use of the newly-developing KTM.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
