Kinesio Taping : For The Active Lifestyle
Vantage Point Excels at the Kinesio Taping Technique
Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for preventive maintenance, swelling, and to treat pain.
Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, the study of human movement. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.
The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive, thus allowing full range of motion.
In contrast, traditional sports’ taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event obstructing the flow of bodily fluids as an UNDESIRABLE side-effect.
Kinesio Tape is used for anything from neck pain to foot problems and everything in between. Examples include: muscular facilitation or inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain, knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring strains, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patellar tracking problems, pre and post surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic preventative injury method, and as a support method.
