Kinesio Taping Physiotherapy Services
Kinesio taping physiotherapy techniques are a form of therapeutic and rehabilitative taping. Commonly used for treatment of muscular disorders, as well as the management of acute and chronic swelling. Kinesio taping assists is several ways from:
- Increasing the fluid flow through an injured area,
- better control over muscle contractions,
- reducing pain,
- and ultimately helping encourage faster healing.
At Sydney Physio Clinic we use Donjoy Keniso tape. A high quality K_tape that allows the wearer to move through their full range of movement. With the right taping techniques, K-taping can either strongly assist, resist, facilitate, inhibit or offload tissue through its movement.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT NOW
Why Kinesio Taping?
- Kinesio tape can act in such a way to mimic the action of an injured muscle or tendon.
- Resulting in decreased workload and improved biomechanical efficiency of the muscle and tendon unit. As well as improving the units tolerance to fatigue.
- Reducing this workload and increasing fatigue resistance can result in less pain. Promote better healing, improved endurance and overall performance.
Kinesio Taping Is Only One Type Of Taping Used By Physios
Physiotherapists have a vast array of different taping methods in their arsenal. The technique used depends on the anatomical location and reasoning behind the need for taping. A physiotherapist will use different taping techniques and strategies, as well as different tapes to achieve the desired result. The exact application of any tape or taping technique used will vary depending on the clinical reasoning process. Which is why appropriate assessment is necessary prior to any taping procedure, to ensure the correct method is applied.
Other Physio Taping Techniques Used At Sydney Physio Clinic
Sometimes the aim of applying tape will be to limit unwanted movement. Restricting movement at a joint, or offloading specific anatomical structures where a weakness has been identified. Taping techniques and tapes used to limit unwanted motion at a joint will be vastly different to any Kinesio taping. Both approaches having different clinical reasoning and thought processing behind their use. Knowing what tape and taping technique to use and in which situation is crucial to the effectiveness of any treatment. Physiotherapists are trained to assess, select and apply the appropriate method of taping for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
