Kinesio Taping in Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors like Dr. Lozano at Lozano Chiropractic of Norco, CA, are always searching for the most effective methods of healing and recovery for their patients. In addition to adjustments and various other techniques, one highly effective method is kinesio taping – also known as kinesiology taping and K-tape. In this guide, we’ll discuss what this tape is and how it can aid in your recovery.

What Is Kinesiology Taping?

K-tape is a type of tape placed strategically on specific points of the body. Unlike regular tape, K-tape is elastic, so it moves as you do. It’s basically like an extra layer of skin, but it can do some very interesting things.

The specific points it is placed along the body depend on the patient’s needs. The following are the three basic benefits of K-tape.

  • Reduce inflammation: When placed strategically, it can help the skin lift very slightly away from the fascia, which allows for better lymphatic drainage and decreased inflammation.
  • Relieve pain: K-tape is placed on nerve receptors in the skin, which results in fewer or no pain signals traveling to the brain.
  • Injury recovery: When you’ve sustained an injury to the muscles or joints, K-tape can be used to provide the support the injured areas need while still allowing you to move freely.
  • Improve performance: Athletes find K-tape very beneficial for improving their athletic performance, mostly by making them more aware of their movements. It can help promote better posture, which can help everyone perform better throughout their day.

What Do Chiropractors Use Kinesiology Taping For?

K-tape is often used in combination with other techniques to address issues such as:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shin splints
  • Ankle sprains
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Shoulder pain

After a thorough assessment, your chiropractor can determine whether adding kinesiology taping to your treatment plan is beneficial.
