Kinesio Taping

How will Kinesio taping in Chicago, IL, Evergreen Park, IL and Munster, IN benefit me?

Kinesio tape is made of a flexible material that allows you to move freely. This type of tape is primarily used to facilitate your motion and inhibit your pain. In addition, Kinesio taping is thought to have the ability to reduce inflammation, promote post-surgical healing, optimize performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and assist the body’s natural healing process.

Kinesio tape is used with athletes to improve the components of sports performance, including:

  • Strength
  • Proprioception (i.e., static and dynamic balance)
  • Power
  • Jumping ability (vertical and horizontal)
  • Speed and agility

Kinesio tape is also used as an adjunct to treating sports, and non-sports injuries, like:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Runner’s knee
  • Hamstring pulls
  • Calf/Achilles strains
  • Rotator cuff problems
  • Back pain

Kinesio tape is used to help alleviate pain so you can get back to living your everyday active life!
