Kinesiology Taping

The Kinesio Taping® Method

There is no greater healing process than the body’s natural healing process. The Kinesio Taping® Method allows our therapists to provide patients with a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that will provide support and stability to muscles and joints while facilitating the body’s healing process. This method is preferred, as it provides extended soft tissue manipulation without restricting the body’s range of motion. The result is prolonged manual therapy benefits in our clinic.

What is Kinesio Tape?

In 1979 the elastic adhesive tape called Kinesio Tape was developed to alleviate discomfort and facilitate lymphatic drainage. The tape mimics human skin, is latex-free, water resistant, hypoallergenic and has a multiple day wear time. You will find that this tape does not limit range of motion so you can still go about your everyday activities. Kinesio tape can be applied in many ways but you will usually see strips in the shape of an “X” or “Y”.

Support for Your Rehabilitation in Midland & Odessa, TX

With the Kinesio® Taping Method, our therapists offer patients the support they need while rehabilitating the affected condition. This method alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage while lifting the skin microscopically by targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system. This effect increases interstitial space by forming convolutions in the skin, decreasing inflammation in the affected areas.
