Kinesio Taping

 

indexFor more than 25 years, Kinesio Taping has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management and physical therapy.

 

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while

allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both Kinesio® Tex Tape and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials.

A professional trained in this technique best performs Kinesio Taping. If there is a correct

way of doing something, then there is an incorrect way too. Dr Munderloh has been trained

and certified in advanced Kinesio Tape application and contraindications.

In the mid-1970s, Dr. Kenzo Kase was already a well-known Japanese practitioner licensed in

chiropractic and acupuncture. He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close

to living human skin, in response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping

methods on his own patients.

Dr. Kase was experienced with both Japanese and US norms for patient treatment. He began to

have questions about the limitations of the Western medical mindset. He heard of a cryotherapy

treatment for arthritis that utilized tape to adjust joint distortion. In Western medicine the

presumption had been that once a joint is in a certain shape that cannot be changed. He was

intrigued by the possibilities that this treatment could remediate the distortion.

He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close to living human tissue, in

response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping methods on his own patients.

To develop such a modality, he ordered supplies of the different athletic tapes that were available at that time. None of them gave him the results he was looking for. By trial and error, he realized that the source of the complaint was actually in the muscle, not in the joint or in the bone. To stabilize the joint he saw that it was more effective to tape around the muscle to achieve joint correction. The tapes that he was able to obtain were rigid, designed to immobilize the joint.

In cases of injury or overuse, the muscle loses its elasticity. Dr. Kase needed to develop a tape that

would have the same elasticity as healthy human muscle. He knew from his practice that the tape

would also need to stay on the skin where it was applied. He spent two years doing a lot of research relating to elasticity, adhesives and breathability.

Finally, he came up with a tape that possessed the proper degree of elasticity, and that lifts the skin microscopically. From that beginning, Kinesio® Tex Tape was invented. Its unique properties were based on a study of kinesiology.


Kinesio® Tex Tape is used to

• Re-educate the neuromuscular system

• Reduce pain

• Enhance performance

• Prevent injury

• Promote improved circulation and healing
