Kinesiology Taping for Ft. Lauderdale Athletes
Kinesiology taping is beneficial for both sports injuries and injuries sustained in auto accidents. Taping an injury helps to stabilize the joint and hold muscles and connective tissue in place. At Tartack Chiropractic, our staff understands the taping process and can effectively use the technique to aid in the healing process and prevent further injury from occurring.
Why Kinesiology Taping Helps
After a sports or auto accident injury, inflammation can displace muscles and connective tissue causing pain and discomfort. Kinesiology taping helps hold both soft tissue and connective tissues in their original position, reducing inflammation and stabilizing the joint. Taping can also help to correct abnormalities that have resulted from past injuries that were left untreated. By holding everything in place, the tape also adds support and over time will help muscles in the area become stronger as they heal.
Injuries That Require Kinesiology Taping
Injuries to the knees, ankles, wrists, elbows, hands and feet can benefit from kinesiology taping. Sprained ankles, strained knees, hyperextended fingers and wrists are just a few of the injuries that can be helped by taping. While a soft bandage can be applied during times of inactivity, taping is beneficial when strenuous exercise or other types of work is performed. Anytime the injured area is used, taping provides support taking the stress and strain off of the muscles and connective tissues that may be weakened due to the injury.
