Kinesio/rocktape chiropractic application in Kansas City
Kinesio and Rock Tape
How our bodies move is influenced by the proprioceptive feedback (or input) we receive from the various tissues and joints in our body. The way in which we move or complete a task can lead to excessive strain to tissue(s), over time leading to pain and/or injury. Chiropractic kinesiology taping in Kansas City, or rock tape, can provide external feedback to help correct and improve movement patterns. In addition to this, Kinesio/RockTape also improves blood flow and lymph return, which can aid in tissue recovery.

How Kinesio and Rock Tape Works
Kinesio/RockTape is a non-latex fabric with elastic properties that adheres to the skin and can be placed over many regions of the body. Due to its elastic properties, once the tape is applied to the skin, the tension in the tape provides a type of sensory feedback to the brain which can influence movement patterns.
This elastic tension also provides a micro-level “skin lift” which promotes blood and lymph circulation at the region of application.
