Rock Taping at Back Worx Chiropractic and Decompression

Rock taping a patient.

When applied correctly most people do not even know the tape is in place as it is very light and comfortable.

The original Kinesio Tex Tape® and Kinesio Taping Method® were developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase a Japanese Chiropractor who trained in the United States. He initiated the concept in the early 1970’s and began working to develop a specialized tape that could aid the body in healing itself. The highly successful results utilize specialized treatment techniques involving a unique elastic tape that is helpful in reducing localized swelling associated with surgery, sports injuries, and acute trauma.

Rock Taping has the ability to:

  • Re-educate the neuromuscular system
  • Reduce pain
  • Enhance performance
  • Prevent injury
  • Promote good circulation and healing

When applied correctly most people do not even know the tape is in place as it is very light and comfortable. The tape remains effective for 3-5 days before it needs to be replaced. It tolerates showering, and even swimming. The tape does absorb water; but dries quickly in about 20 minutes.
