“Magic Tape”— The Kinesio Taping Method

The Kinesio Taping Method is one of the newest and most effective techniques that physical therapist offer at Dresher Physical Therapy. Kinesio Taping is a therapeutic taping method that utilizes a uniquely designed non-latex elastic tape. The tape is designed to improve the function of our soft tissue and physiologic systems. This taping method has been used for over 30 years and has a tremendous amount of evidence supporting its positive clinical outcomes. Perhaps you noticed this colorful tape worn by dozens of athletes at the most recent Summer Olympic Games? Like many people, you may have wondered, “What on Earth is that stuff and could it possibly help ME?”

The staff at Dresher Physical Therapy has been trained in the theory, principles and application of the Kinesio Taping Method for optimal results in the rehabilitation setting. The tape can be used to treat a wide range of issues including shoulder instability, neck and back pain, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, patella tendonitis, golfer’s and tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and joint swelling to name just a few. There is seemingly no limit to the types of problems that can be addressed with this amazing tape. Once applied, the tape can be worn for approximately 3-5 days. The light, natural feel of the tape cause many people to forget they even have it on. You can bathe and shower as normal, as the performance and adherence of the Kinesio Tape is unaffected by water. The Kinesio Tex tape is appropriate during any stage of your healing, and can be also used to help prevent re-injury.
