If you are living with pain from an injury or overuse, our Alexandria chiropractor may suggest kinesio taping as part of your treatment plan. You may have seen displays of kinesio tape on athletes who are recovering from injuries and need additional support for their movements. The tape is available in a variety of colors, which you choose to meet your personal preference. You may notice athletes using a combination of colors to match their University or symbolize an important athletic team. Our chiropractor in Alexandria explains the benefits of using this flexible tape when recovering from a muscular or joint injury. Some of the benefits of kinesio taping include:
Reducing Inflammation - When the flexible tape is applied around your point of pain, the tape increases blood flow to the site. As a result, inflammation is decreased when circulation removes the built up toxins.
Speed Of Healing - Increased circulation to the area also means an increase in healing cells and nutrients to repair the damage and speed your recovery time.
Supports Physical Activity - When your joint or muscle is hurting, you may shy away from movement. Our chiropractor in Alexandria understands that movement is essential for healing. The kinesio tape supports your muscles and joints to allow for greater freedom of movement.
Relaxes Overused Muscles - If you are living with a muscular imbalance or muscle tension, an application of kinesio tape relaxes these tense muscles to alleviate pain and restore your mobility.
Kinesio taping at our Alexandria chiropractic center is a natural way to decrease your pain and promote injury healing. Our chiropractors gently apply the supportive tape to surround the area that is the most painful. You immediately feel the support and warmth and a decrease in your symptoms. The tape can be worn in the shower and our chiropractors may ask you to return for an additional application depending on how your body responds to the treatment. We use kinesio taping in combination with our chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy and massage therapy services to enhance your recovery time. We encourage you to ask us about kinesio taping if you are recovering from a sports or overuse injury. To schedule your appointment, please call us today at 703-683-7771.
