Kinesio taping Strapping

As well as treating athletes and those who enjoy sport, we treat patients with a wide variety of conditions with kinesio taping strapping and find the technique extremely effective in not only reducing pain, but reducing swelling as well.

 

A few conditions it has really shown results in are as follows;

  • Lymphedema or ‘Swollen legs’
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Swollen painful joints e.g. twisted ankles (which have changed colour and look green, yellow and brown), painful restricted shoulders
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Patellar trekking issues
  • Osgood Sclatters (Pain in the front of the knee in young children)
  • Postural imbalances, e.g. sitting posture, slumped shoulders, forward headed posture and much more

The Tape is stuck on the skin in a special way which aids in either supporting joints, moving circulation to an area that is not healing well or to help muscles to remain stretched or shorten (if they are over stretched), this is particularly useful for people with Postural Issues which is causing pain. When the tape is attached the patient will not be able to feel it there and it can stay attached for up to 3-5 days. If you think you have sensitive skin and may be allergic to this type of therapy we can do a patch test first.

 

This type of treatment is suitable for all ages from newborn up to the elderly. To find out more information you can read the official website www.kinesiotaping.co.uk Contact us now to make an enquiry or arrange an appointment
