      <br> It can be used to manage swelling immediately after injury or surgery, or to decrease pain as it lifts the skin to create more space directly above an area of pain or inflammation. Example: Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) can have twenty different aetiologies, from problems with foot alignment to trunk muscle strength, requiring completely different taping applications. Electromyography was used to measure muscle activity. Kinesio Tape is a malleable, waterproof athletic tape that can be applied over the muscle and provide support and additional feedback to that muscle and your central nervous system. Best of all, Kinesio Tape is waterproof and stays on for days, even for triathletes. In our opinion Rock Tape H2O has the best glue and therefore stays on the longest. Once the tape is in place, the therapist will rub it for one minute as the glue is activated by heat and friction. One meta-analysis published in 2012 found that it may have a small beneficial role in improving strength and range of motion, but says further studies are needed to confirm these findings. This elastic property allows much greater range of motion compared to traditional white athletic tape and can also be left on for long periods before reapplication.<br>
      <br> Non-restricted support allows muscles full range of motion. The tape neither limits normal range of motion nor prevents the athlete from performing their usual motions. This technique allows the body’s normal range of motion as well as providing extending soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. It can also be used over tendons and ligaments to increase stimulation to injured tissue and can help to facilitate weak muscles or inhibit overactive and painful muscles. Scar tissue is not inherently permanent. A roll usually costs around $15.00. What Are The Potential Costs For Therapeutic Taping? Let your therapist know ahead of time if you are known to be allergic to medical tape or adhesive bandages. While the science behind kinesio taping is still under investigation, Dr. Kenzo Kase the founder of the kinesio taping method believes the stretchy nature of the tape and its wavy adhesive pattern primarily contribute to the benefits seen with this taping style. Kinesio Tex Gold FP mimics a gentle human touch while providing a Micro-grip deep set adhesive, applied during the manufacturing process, resulting in improved grip and hold with less adhesive surface area.<br>
      <br> Taping should never be performed over an area of active malignancy, over fragile or healing skin, an area of infection, an open wound or over a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). At your initial appointment, our Lawrence, KS physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation, which will determine if Kinesio taping will be an effective option for your treatment plan. We determine why the injury happened and work to correct it so that you will lessen your chances of getting hurt again. Kinesio Taping is an exciting new form of athletic training that can improve performance, enhance circulation, prevent injury and allow a runner to train and compete with an existing injury. McConnell taping involves the use of several types of rigid tape that have distinct characteristics. Before the tape is applied, the Certified Kinesio Tape Practitioner assures that the patient’s skin is clean and free of oils, sweat and lotions. Before being taped, your therapist will clean your skin with an alcohol-based cleanser. This will help the tape last longer. The less exposure the tape has to water, the longer it will last, so we recommend showering only once per day. The tape is made to mimic the qualities of the superficial layer of skin so once it is on for a few minutes your body will be used to its presence.<br>
      <br> Taping is performed for a few reasons and can be beneficial at any stage of injury (acute to chronic). After you have the tape on for a few days, your therapist will follow up with you to see how it feels. In addition, after the tape is applied it will stay on the treated region for up to 4-5 days without the athlete losing the benefits. This time, the tape will go on top of the shoulder, going over (or just inside) the bony prominence you can feel on the top edge of your shoulder. If you feel like your body benefited from the tape, some techniques can be taught in which you can buy your own roll and tape yourself. Your physical therapist may recommend an application of KT tape, along with icing, rest, and targeted stretches. This may be considered medically necessary in the transition of the member from hospital to home, and may be an extension of case management services. Kinesiology taping is still a relativley new adjunct to physiotherapy therefore research is a little sparce, therefore clinical experience and UnCut case resports are the preliminary resource for evidence of application. It is difficult for practicing therapists to embrace a new technique, many even labeling it as unscientific and claiming there is little research to support its use.<br>
