Kinesio Taping in Kansas City
Chiropractic Kinesio & Rock Tape Applications
Proprioceptive feedback (or input) we receive from the various tissues and joints in our body can influence the way we move. Depending on our daily, repetitive activities, the ways in which we move or complete tasks can lead to excessive strain on muscle tissue(s). This can lead to pain and even injury over time. Chiropractic Kinesiology, or Kinesio, Taping in Kansas City can provide external feedback to help correct and improve these movement patterns. In addition, Kinesio Taping also improves blood flow and lymph return, which can aid in tissue recovery!

How Kinesio Tape Works
Kinesio Taping (Rock Tape) uses a non-latex fabric with elastic properties to adheres to the skin. We can place this tape 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.
