Kinesio Tape is designed as a muscle facilitator that helps support the natural healing process of your body. Kinesio Tape allows you to support your muscles while maintaining normal circulation and natural movement, something that traditional Sports Taping fails to do. Other than a general muscle support, Kinesio Tape has also been used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, lymphedema, chronic swelling, back strains, back pain, ankle sprains, herniated discs, subluxations, knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring or groin injuries, rotator cuff injuries, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre- and post-surgical Edema, and more. Kinesio tape can even be used for common maladies like headaches and stiff muscles.
Kinesio Taping Applications DVD is an educational video for clinical practitioners. This Kinesio DVD is approved by the National Athletic Trainers' Association, NATA, for 1 contact hour of continuing education credits. You may select this video to assist with continuing education requirements or as supplemental instruction.
This Kinesio Educational Video includes basic theory, functions, and application principles of the Kinesio Taping Method. In addition, Jim Wallis MS, ATC, CKTI, will guide you through common clinical conditions such as lateral epicondylitis, rotator cuff, lower back strain and spasm, patella tracking, and plantar fasciitis.
We offer a variety of other instructional DVDs that cover geriatrics, acupuncture, chiropractic and osteopathy, exercise and fitness, feet and ankles, upper extremities, scars and edema, sports medicine, throat and mouth, and women's health.
How to Use Kinesio Tape
Instead of wrapping around a joint for support or other stability purposes, Kinesio taping is a unique elastic tape that is applied over muscles 24 hours a day for up to five days to support your muscles and their natural processes. We suggest purchasing one of the Kinesio tape accessories listed above to help you get started and at least a few rolls of varying widths. One great option for anyone just getting started is the Illustrated Taping Manual which covers the essentials of Kinesio taping in a step-by-step process. There is also the Kinesio Perfect Manual which covers common clinical conditions such as headaches, back pain, and muscle stiffness. Other support materials include a manual for lymphoedema patients, a manual for anyone using Kinesio tape in pediatrics, a detailed manual for use of Kinesio tape for clinical reasons, an instructional DVD with real-life taping demonstrations, and Kinesio scissors that are designed specifically for Kinesio tape.
It is also suggested that you wait one hour before participating in sports or immersing the tape in water (i.e. swimming or showering). Due to naturally accruing sweat and clamminess on hands and feet, Kinesio taping is especially useful due to its water resistance.
