The level of care at Miccass goes above and beyond other physical therapy centers I’ve tried in NYC. I’ve seen Jenny, the owner, for foot and back issues, and she has personalized my care to a level that is highly unusual. The treatment plan and exercises are tailored to my body, and I feel very taken care of as a patient and person. Not to mention getting massaged by her for 30 minutes each session is a dream! I highly recommend Miccass.

How Can Kinesio Taping Help Recovery?

During application, specialized elastic therapeutic tape gently lifts the skin, allowing space between layers to channel excess fluid out lymphatically while providing directed input towards muscle groups needing either assistance or resistance. Traction also desensitizes local nerve fiber responses for pain modulation. This tape adhesiveness and flexible properties add natural stability without impeding your active range of motion or feeling overly constricting over long durations since it moves with your body. Light sensory feedback also enhances body awareness and motor control.

Custom Kinesio Support Protocols

After assessing areas of edema, compensation patterns, postural deviations, or painful movement gaps, your taping specialist selects appropriate taping anchors, tensions, vectors and muscular targets to address:

  • Acute injury stabilization
  • Post-op swelling management
  • Chronic conditions like tendonitis
  • Nerve tension alleviation
  • Muscular facilitation or inhibition
  • Body mechanics optimization
  • Functional movement assistance

We adjust approaches as healing progresses based on symptom relief and restored capability feedback.

Kinesio Taping Advantages

Therapeutic movement and recovery made possible through Kinesio Taping includes:

Decreased Pain and Swelling: Directing fluid away from irritated zones using tape traction reduces localized pressure while calming inflammatory responses for both acute injury and chronic conditions.

Improved Postural Alignment: Providing gentle somatic cues towards optimal positioning while resting and active starts reprogramming gradual deviations hindering efficiency.

Enhanced Proprioceptive Feedback: Dynamic cutaneous input positively reeducates sensorimotor systems for refined coordination sequences and capability expansion as patients rebuild dysfunctional patterns.

Progressive Rehabilitation Platform: The adaptable stability and directional pull of Kinesio Tape allows incrementally greater challenges as patients regain control, confidence and strength through treatment plans.

What is Kinesio Tex tape used for?
Kinesio tape is used to provide natural, flexible support while also re-educating musculoskeletal imbalances. It can address swelling, restrict motion, enhance proprioception, facilitate weakened muscles, ease discomfort, and prevent overuse injuries through precision application.

How long should you leave kinesio tape on?
Kinesio tape should stay in place for 3-5 days on average for optimal results. The specialized heat activated glue ensures prolonged adhesion if applied correctly based on location by a certified clinician while remaining gentle on skin upon removal when it starts naturally loosening.

What is the difference between taping and kinesio taping?
Unlike traditional rigid tape limiting mobility, elastic therapeutic Kinesio tape allows full range of motion necessary for rehabilitation by providing joint stability and dynamic muscular support simultaneously which traditional tape cannot offer during natural movements.

What do the colors of KT Tape mean?
KT Tape comes in a variety of colors but the shade itself does not impact function. However color assortments allow clinicians and patients to track locations, differentiate sides based on pairs, or use preferences aesthetically. Patients are encouraged to test skin sensitivity first.
