Sports – Support for sport where injury has occurred.
I have taped for regular niggles and sore muscles and have also taped for support for events. I have taped a shoulder to help support a damaged muscle for sailing, several ankles in different areas after sprains and strains, one for marathon training and one for a 5k obstacle course.
Injury – Support for work and rehabilitate effects.
I have taped knees to help stop medial tracking of the patella, I have taped lower backs, shoulders and necks to help off load muscles and help alleviate trigger points, I have also used it to lift muscle to help alleviate nerve impingement at the shoulder and neck.
Rehabilitation – Swelling reduction and increases blood flow.
Kinesio taping lifts the skin and fascia which facilitates swelling reduction and increases blood flow to injured areas.
As well as treating clients, I have treated myself! Taping my foot and ankle after a sprain, helping to support it so I could run, I have also taped my wrist, and it has to be said I was surprised at how good the tape was for supporting the muscles and at aiding the speed of my recovery.
If you are interested in Kinesio taping please book a session with me and I can apply post massage, if you are a regular customer who wants taping for a specific event then please contact me.
