Elastic Therapeutic Taping

While not a new concept or treatment modality, Sports Medicine offers Elastic Therapeutic Taping (commonly known as Kinesiotaping) as just one more tool in its therapists’ arsenal, available to help get our clients back to life faster!

The elastic cotton tape is applied over muscles with the aim of reducing pain and inflammation, of relaxing overused fatigued muscles and of providing 24/7 support to muscles in movement. Because it is elastic, this is a non-restrictive type of taping, therefore there is no impact on a client’s mobility.

Elastic Therapeutic Taping has a wide range of uses, including:

  • Lower back strain/pain (subluxations, herniated disc)
  • Lower extremity conditions – groin and hamstring injuries, plantar fasciitis, patellar tracking, ankle sprains
  • Upper extremity conditions – rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pre- and post-surgical edema
  • Upper extremity conditions – rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pre- and post-surgical edema

Elastic Therapeutic Taping is available at all 3 clinics. Please ask your therapist for more information.
