Therapeutic Taping at Elite Spine and Sports Care of Fort Lee NJ
Therapeutic Taping, also known as Kinesiology Taping, is a method of treatment offered by the physical therapists at Elite Spine and Sports Care of Fort Lee.
The Therapeutic Taping process is simple – it involves a special tape placed on your body to ease muscle tension, improve movement and support your joints. Unlike athletic tape, kinesiology tape promotes movement rather than restriction. This additional movement helps to improve circulation and promotes healing, pain relief and more. Therapeutic Taping and other Physical therapy Services are now available at our new Fort Lee location – located right on Parker Avenue in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
How Does Therapeutic Taping Work?
On the surface, kinesiology tape is simply pulling at the outer epidermis. However, it is more than just the surface effects. As the tape pulls on the outer skin, the muscles and tissue underneath begin to have increased blood flow. This helps to decrease pain and muscle spasms. Increased blood flow creates balance in the neural circuitry within tissues, muscles, and joints. This tape is seen as a useful tool in the realignment of joint positions after injury.
Goals of Therapeutic Taping:
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Increase blood flow
- Improve joint stability
- Inhibit improper muscle activity to promote proper muscle activity
