This advanced taping method reduces pain, improves function of muscles and tendons and works to reduce soft tissue swelling.
It seems to work "like magic".
The specially designed Kinesio tape is extrememly stretchy,
moving with your body, enhancing the flow of fluids beneath the skin and removing pressure from sensitive nerve endings and enhancing muscle function.
Dr. Bob has used this approach since 2005 but it really gained popularity after the 2008 Summer Olympics when Gold Medal
winner Kerri Walsh was seen on TV wearing it during play. It has now become common to see this type of tape on professional (and amateur) athletes in every sport and activity.
Dr. John is a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner through the Kinesio Taping Association International. He has become expert at applying this therapy to improve performance and to reduce pain.
Traditional taping methods are designed to restrict movement
but Kinesio taping methods actually enhance movement. This basic difference produces results that continue to amaze us and our patients.
