Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping (also Kinesiology Tape) is a specialized form of elastic therapeutic tape with an acrylic adhesive that offers support and stability to joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It essentially mimics the skin and can be used to support muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. It is effective in treating many physical disorders and is used as preventative maintenance. When used to treat athletic injuries, Kinesio Taping can allow an athlete to continue to participate in his or her sport, while augmenting treatment.

Dr. Christian Barney is a certified Kinesio Taping Instructor; one of the first in Orange county. He has been certified for 10 years and collaborates with the rest of the certified team at Performance Health & Wellness.

How Does Kinesio Taping Work?

Kinesio Tape is used to help relax overused muscles and hence allow them to recover. Kinesio Tape can also be used in rehabilitation to facilitate underused muscles by having a lifting effect on the skin thereby reducing swelling and inflammation while improving circulations.
