Kinesio Taping

A hypoallergenic, flexible therapeutic tape applied to muscles and joints to prevent and treat soft tissue and joint injuries

If you watched the 2012 Summer Olympics you may have found yourself wondering, "What's with all the colorful neon tape the Olympic athletes were wearing?"

This bright neon athletic tape called Kinesio Tape, or Kinesiology tape, made Olympic headlines as it was being used by athletes from almost every country and across almost every sport! The interesting colors and unique styles gave the athletes an extra bit of flair that couldn't be ignored. This innovative and stylish athletic tape has actually been around for decades but has just recently gained popularity in its treatment of a variety of muscle and joint related conditions. Kinesio Taping provides support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion.

Dr. Megan frequently uses Kinesio Tape for shoulder, knee and ankle injuries.  She also uses the tape to help reduce strain during pregnancy, to help reduce bruising or swelling in recently injured regions and also as a way to prevent injury in athletes competing in sport.

Talk to Dr. Megan if you are interested in exploring how Kinesio Tape can help you to improve your athletic and sports performance, to treat an existing musculoskeletal injury or to help prevent future sports related injuries!
