Kinesio Tape® is the original and authentic elastic therapeutic tape, used by chiropractors, physical therapists and other licensed health professionals to treat a variety of muscle, joint and rehabilitative conditions. Kinesio Taping® Method is practiced worldwide and is respected and utilized by patients, athletes and therapists.
The product is a type of thin, elastic cotton tape that is claimed to be able to stretch up to 140% of its original length. As a result, if the tape is applied to a patient on a stretch greater than its normal length, it will "recoil" after being applied and therefore create a pulling force on the skin that it is being applied to. This elastic property allows much greater range of motion compared to traditional white athletic tape and can also be left on for long periods of time before reapplication.
Dr. Sakhai can not only apply athletic tape in this method, but can show you how to apply it yourself in the future. Make an appointment today to begin utilizing the latest method of sports and athletic support tape.
