Kinesio Taping® in Everett

Dr. Kenzo Kase invented the Kinesio Taping Method more than 25 years ago in Japan; it’s now considered the platinum standard for therapeutic, rehabilitative taping. The proprietary method of taping uses a uniquely designed and patented tape for treatment of muscular disorders and lymphedema reduction.

What Does It Involve?

With the Kinesio Taping® Method, Dr. Hogan tapes over and around muscles to aid and provide support or to inhibit over-contraction. The first technique allows him to offer support while you maintain a full range of motion. As a result, you will be able to participate in your normal physical activity with functional assistance.

The second technique, which is most typically used in the acute stage of rehabilitation, helps prevent overuse or over-contraction and helps facilitate lymph flow for an entire 24-hour period. Correctional techniques include mechanical, lymphatic, ligament/tendon, fascia, space and functional. Kinesio Tex® Tape can be used along with other therapies, including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, massage therapy, and electrical stimulation.

Kinesio Taping influences the activation of the neurological system as well as the circulatory system. Muscles not only help to facilitate the movements of the body, but they also manage venous and lymph circulation, body temperature and more. Therefore, when the muscles fail to properly function, an array of symptoms results.

Activating the Body’s Healing Process

That’s why the idea of treating the muscles to stimulate the body’s healing process came to be. Using a flexible tape, such as Kinesio Tex Tape, it was found that muscles and other tissues could be helped. Using Kinesio Taping represents an innovative approach to treating nerves, muscles and organs.

Widely Recognized by Medical Practitioners

Since Kinesio Taping was introduced in the United States, a broad array of medical practitioners including PTs, ATCs, OTs, DCs, MTs and MDs have recognized and adopted this useful, safe and best of all, easy-to-use therapy. By using the method and tape, you can receive the comfortable and therapeutic benefits 24 hours per day. You can wear the tape for multiple days per application.

We have found that Kinesio Taping is highly effective in addressing chronic muscle and joint problems. It’s especially useful for those who have to return to sport or other physical demands before reaching a plateau in care or for chronic recurrent issues.
