Made famous by the Olympics, the world's number one elastic taping method is used to decrease or eliminate pain while enhancing muscle, fascial, joint and circulatory function in the body through proprioceptive feedback.
The advantage of using therapeutic elastic tape is that this input is provided 24 hours/day while doing normal daily tasks as well as specific exercises.
Tape can be worn for 3-5 days extending the work done in physical therapy and reinforcing neuromuscular re-education for faster strength, endurance, and stabilization gains.
The proprioceptive feedback provided by elastic therapeutic tape enhances the body's homesostatic process and thus can improve natural function and performance.
Clients and caregivers (if needed) are instructed in taping for follow through when hands-on treatment is no longer indicated.
