Taping techniques

Kinesio Taping : Kinesio Taping Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to improve muscular function, decrease pain or abnormal skin sensations, improve lymphatic flow to decrease swelling and bruising, assist in proper alignment of joints. Due to the specific type of tape used, Kinesio Taping allows for full range of motion of the injured tissues while maintaining support. Kinesio taping can be applied to injuries including:

  1. Any sprain/strain in the body
  2. Postural Disorders
  3. Rotator Cuff/Shoulder Injuries
  4. Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
  5. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  6. Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITB Syndrome)
  7. Knee Tracking or Tendon Disorders
  8. Ankles Sprains
  9. Reduction of Traumatic or Post-Surgical Swelling or Bruising

Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping (SPRT): SPRT taping, developed by Dr. Tim Brown, helps determine the direction necessary for proper approximation and compression of injured tissues. SPRT gives greater relief from the injury in movement patterns. Due to the types of tapes used, SPRT is very supportive of injured or torn tissues while still allowing for proper range of motion with activity. SPRT can be applied to a number of injuries including:

  1. Cervical and Lumbar Disc Herniations (Neck and Lumbar Disc Injuries)
  2. Shoulder /Rotator Cuff Injuries
  3. AC Joint Injuries (shoulder separations)
  4. Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
  5. Postural Disorders
  6. Knee Tracking Disorders (patella tracking disorders)
  7. Ankle Sprains
  8. Meniscal Injuries

If you are suffering from any of these conditions ask our doctors on how they can help you solve the problem.

    3. Rotator Cuff Injuries
    4. Shoulder Laxity and Separations
    5. Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow

    7. Nerve Entrapments (carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndrome)
    8. Sacroiliac joint Injuries/laxity
    9. Iliotibial Band Syndrome
    10. Patella Tracking Disorders
    11. Meniscus Injuries
    12. Tibial Stress Syndromes (shin splints)
    13. Ankle Sprains (Inversion, Eversion, High Ankle Sprian)
