Whether it’s Athletic Taping or KINESIO Taping, Tsawwassen Sports & Orthopaedic Physiotherapist Clinic can get you back into the game or active again while you rehabilitate your injury. We have been offering both these types of taping to our patients for many years.
Athletic Taping is applied to injured joints and other areas of the body with dysfunction to support the area and allow for an earlier return to sport or work.
KINESIO is a therapeutic taping technique that offers the patient or athlete support while helping to rehabilitate the affected area as well. KINESIO taping works with the lymphatic system to increase ciculation of blood and lymph in order to rehabilitate and relieve pain. This technique uses a highly specific designed tape that works with the body allowing full range of motion (ROM). It does not adversely affect the biomechanics of the patient. This latex free product makes it hypoallergenic and safe to use from the pediatric to geriatric populations. No compression to the skin makes it “light to the feel” allowing comfortable wear over a 3-5 day period. The water resistant fabric wicks away moisture so the patient can still bathe. It can be used for virtually all clinical conditions.
