Kinesiology taping is a therapeutic and rehabilitative taping technique
that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while
providing support and stability to muscles and joints without
restricting the body’s range of motion. It also can provide extended
soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy
administered by Dr. Solano during your visit. This method successfully
treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other
medical conditions, and it not only offers the support patients are
looking for, but also rehabilitation of the affected condition as well.
By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, the
taping method alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by
microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions
in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a
decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
