Have A Sports Injury? Kinesio Taping Could Help You Feel Better, Faster

Kinesio taping is a form of therapy offered at Wisconsin Orthopedic Physical Therapy to assist in relieving pain, promoting recovery, increasing mobility, improving range of motion, and, most importantly, getting you back to doing the things you enjoy!

Contact us today to learn more about Kinesio taping and to make an appointment with one of our dedicated Wauwatosa, WI physical therapists.

What Are The Benefits Of Kinesio Taping?

It aids in the restoration of function by restoring broken connections between the skin and the muscles, joints, and tendons beneath it.

Pain receptors are blocked from reaching the brain with Kinesio taping. The muscles in the affected area will relax and the likelihood of spasms will be greatly reduced if these pain signals are not received. Blood flow and movement are restricted in the affected location due to pressure, but once the pressure is removed, blood flow and mobility are restored.

There are many reasons why Kinesio taping may be useful to you in your healing journey!


These include, but are not limited to:


Scar tissue management

Healing from trauma can cause a thick band of scar tissue to develop around the affected area, which can obstruct movement signals. Kinesio taping can stretch your scar tissue, making movement signals more easily communicated and therefore increasing your mobility.


Swelling reduction

It helps to decrease swelling caused by surgery, injury, or overuse by limiting the pressure between the skin and the tissues underneath. This allows any buildup of fluid to travel freely and promotes better movement of the affected area.


Pain relief

The brain no longer receives painful messages from the affected area because pain receptors are suppressed, allowing the muscles to relax. This allows for more mobility, quicker recovery, and a more relaxing treatment experience overall.


Joint stabilization

It can be challenging at times for your joints to stay in position due to certain situations. Kinesio tape can aid in the stabilization and support of these joints while still allowing them to move within their normal range of motion.


How Does A Session Of Kinesio Taping Work?


Our Wauwatosa, WI physical therapist will perform a complete examination during your initial session to decide if Kinesio taping is the best option for your treatment plan.


Kinesio tape will be applied to the problematic area of your body, as well as any other areas of your body that are giving you discomfort or stiffness, by our physical therapists. They will include a range of workouts and techniques into their therapy regimens based on your specific needs.


Many of our patients have discovered that Kinesio taping has assisted them in returning to a normal daily routine with no residual discomfort or stiffness!
