Kinesio Taping

Kinesio tape is a flexible, breathable, and durable form of tape that is applied in specific patterns over muscles and joints. These taping methods are particularly useful for clients who are experiencing pain, muscle or joint restriction, or localized swelling or inflammation.

Kinesio tape works by gently lifting the skin and underlying fascia, aiding in blood flow and lymphatic drainage to promote recovery, reducing muscle spasms and restrictions, and prolonging the benefits of manual therapy treatments. This versatile technique can also improve proprioception and provide additional support and stability without restricting range of motion.

The tape we use at FLO Physical Therapy is 100% latex-free and hypoallergenic, making it a safe treatment option for all individuals. Kinesio tape is also waterproof and can last for multiple days each application, so athletes and active individuals don’t have to worry about frequently applying new tape.
