Kinesio Tape is a therapeutic procedure invented by a Japanese Chiropractor to help patients hold their adjustments better. Our office is one of the first in the area to complete certification for use of this specialty taping procedure. Dr. Lourey Doll has utilized this procedure for over 7 years. Benefits 1. REDUCES PAIN by causing the body to release Endorphin's and Enkephalin's (the body's natural pain relievers). 2. HELPS ADJUSTMENTS HOLD by gently supporting the area 3. REDUCES SWELLING by improving lymphatic flow 4. REDUCES MUSCLE SPASM by reducing muscle fatigue and over-contraction
INSTRUCTIONS WITH USE:
Shower and bath as usual and simply pat the KinesioTape dry with a towel. Do not rub dry, or dry with a blow dryer.
Ice can be applied over the tape for additional relief
The tape is not magnetic or medicated. However, a very small percentage of patients may experience sensitivity or allergic reaction to the glue. Remove the tape, should any problems develop.
Leave the tape on as long as you can. It should begin to come off as the outer skin layer naturally sloughs off, about two to seven days.
