Kinesio Taping

 

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process.  The process is effective for providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion, as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. The Kinesio® Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique not only offering patients the support they are looking for, but also rehabilitating the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kinesio® Tex Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin.  This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas. 

 

Two of the therapists at Wallace Physical Therapy, Monica Norfleet and Michael Chiesi, are certified in the Kinesio Taping Method and also teach their patients to apply it themselves.
