Manual Therapy

Within the physical therapy profession, manual therapy is defined as a clinical approach utilizing specific hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation/mobilization, used by the physical therapist to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain.

Kinesiology Tape

Kinesio Tape or Rock Tape, is a lightweight, stretchable tape that is has been shown to facilitate or inhibit muscles, decrease swelling, or provide support to a specific area of the body. There are various procedures to prevent injury and aid in the rehabilitation process. This tape is often used in the later stages of an injury when an athlete has returned to their sport to prevent reoccurrence. It can also be used in some situations to protect a healing injury such as work injuries related to overuse. The special tape is able to affect the tissues without feeling restrictive like traditional athletic tape. With hundreds of applications for different purposes, the tape is most effective when applied appropriately by an experienced provider.

What to expect...

Our clinic uses Rock Tape brand kinesiology tape which is 97% cotton and 3% nylon, making it hypo-allergenic. The tape is 2 inches or 4 inches wide and is custom cut along its length. Patient's can expect the benefits of kinesio tape to last between three to five days. Patients are encouraged to practice and compete as usual, as there are no movement restrictions that occur with its use. Kinesio tape maintains its benefits while in the pool, or even after the post-workout showers. For our water athletes, specific H2O brands are available for use. 

 

Kinesiology taping works well with chiropractic care by encouraging movement, decreasing pain, and speeding up the healing process of many of the same conditions you may be seeing your chiropractor for.
