What Is Kinesiotaping?
Kinesiotaping is a non-invasive treatment technique designed to improve circulation and offer support and stability to the muscles and joints without restricting mobility. Being safe for all ages, Kinesiotape can be extremely effective in helping to treat orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological, and other medical conditions. Fast Track Physical Therapy has certified Kinesiotaping Practitioners (CKTP) to implement kinesiotaping to the appropriate individuals in need.
Kinesiotape was developed in the mid-1970s, by Dr. Kenzo Kase. Dr. Kase had established himself as a well-known practitioner, licensed in chiropractic therapy and acupuncture in the US and Japan. He was seeing a negative response from his patients on the rigidness of other medical tapes and believed a texture and elasticity closer to living human skin would yield better results. At that time, Western medicine was had assumed that once a joint is in a certain shape that cannot be changed.
After studying the effects of cryotherapy treatment for arthritis that utilized tape to adjust joint distortion, he was intrigued by the possibilities of joint manipulation in other ways. In his studies, through trial and error, he came to realize the source of the complaint was actually in the muscle, not in the joint or in the bone. It was more effective to tape around the muscle to stabilize and achieve joint correction. Injuries tamper with the elasticity of muscles, and Kinesiotape, by its design, mimics and mold to the body as a muscle on the outside to guide muscle on the inside.
