Kinesio Taping is a taping process used to move lymph fluids, change muscle tone, improve posture and correct movement.
Kinesio taping for physical and occupational therapy
Did you ever see people wearing colourful tapes and thought to yourself: what are these? These Kinesio tapes are elastic tape that is often used to reduce pain and swelling, improve muscle strength, decrease muscles tiredness, and encourage optimal alignment. This rehabilitation taping technique facilitates the natural healing process while providing stability and support to the muscles and joints and not restricting the normal range of motion. In addition, Kinesio taping provides support to soft tissues and prolongs the benefits of manual therapy when conducted in a clinical setting.
A popular pediatric treatment, Kinesio taping successfully treats various orthopaedic, neuromuscular, neurological, and other medical conditions. Our Kinesio treatment provides kids with the support they need while rehabilitating the affecting condition. Our therapy alleviates pain, facilitates lymphatic drainage by lifting skin, and increases interstitial space to decrease the inflamed area size. We employ this technique for different diagnoses like cerebral palsy, sore muscles, inflamed parts, torticollis, etc.
What does Kinesio taping help with?
For children, tapping helps improve function and promote postural control to allow for gross motor, fine motor, and oral motor skills. We use Kinesio taping to:
improve muscle function
boost sensory awareness
support ligaments and tendons
improve blood circulation
limit muscle fatigue
improve postural alignment
assist with organ dysfunction
improve walking patterns
We use tapping to facilitate functions
As pediatric therapists, we use tapping to facilitate functions. For instance, we employ Kinesio taping with kids who like to walk on their toes, muscle activation to better sensory feedback to the brain, or assist with babies that have torticollis to strengthen their weak side. Tapping helps to prevent knee hyperextension with kids that tend to lock their joints out. We help kids to develop a more functional position and gain strength when using their muscles and joints. Since taping improves circulation, we tend to keep it in stock always.
Kids won’t feel a thing when using the Kinesio tape
It might feel a bit itchy and uncomfortable when applying the tape; we suggest you keep it for three days for most total effects. Once the tape is removed, it does not stick to the skin. Removing the tape is easy when it’s wet; however, we tend to apply olive oil on the tap and let it soak in.
