Kinesio® Taping in Santa Cruz, CA to Alleviate Back Pain, Neck Pain & More without Surgery or Medication

Kinesio® Taping in Santa Cruz, CA: Dr. Ken Cassorla works with kinesio® taping to promote healing and improve sports performance. The technique used to apply the tape is designed to give joints and muscles the additional support and stability they need, all while working to facilitate healing in the affected area.

What is Kinesio® Taping?

Kinesio® taping is a high quality elastic athletic tape that is designed to stay in place during strenuous exercise without irritating the skin. Kinesio® taping works with your body as you perform daily activities or sports regiments. This is because the elasticity in the tape follows the same level of elasticity found in your skin and muscles. Using taping for posture and support will provide the necessary stability to relax the muscles and relieve pressure. As a result, the patient will no longer get the constant tightness they’ve been feeling. The tape also allows the body to work how it normally does by removing the roadblocks from the healing process. A patient’s range of motion will be restored as well.

Benefits of Kinesio® Taping

Kinesio® taping has grown more popular in recent years. The benefits of taping are far superior to those of traditional taping methods of the past. These include:

  1. Joint Correction: Proper use of kinesio® taping increases the joints’ range of motion while loosening the muscles as well.
  2. Muscle Support: Kinesio® taping supports the muscle’s ability to contract. This works to relieve any pain or fatigue felt in the muscle and prevents cramping.
  3. Allowing flow of body fluids: Kinesio® taping improves blood flow and promotes lymphatic circulation. This will reduce tissue inflammation in the body.
  4. Self Healing: There is no medication found within kinesio® Rather than using drugs or medication to mask any pain, kinesio® taping helps the body to heal itself.
