Kinesio Taping

What is Kinesio Tape?
Kinesio Taping is a modality that can be used to relax painful muscles, support weak muscles, decrease swelling, correct posture, reduce pain, and prevent re-injury. Kinesio Tape is a therapeutic tape with a longitudinal stretch, which provides stability without restriction motion. It is latex-free and comfortable enough to wear for several days, which allows it to provide continued benefits in between therapy sessions.

Kinesio Tape is used by many professional athletes to decrease pain and provide support and stability after an injury, but is also used in a rehabilitation setting with amazing results. At Lafayette Rehabilitation Services, we often use Kinesio Tape to decrease swelling after knee surgery, to “turn off” painful neck or back muscles that are in spasm, or to help weak arm or shoulder muscles work more effectively.
