Kinesio Taping® & SpiderTech™ Kinesiology Taping
Dr. Rothman is a Certified Kinesio Taping® Practitioner (C.K.T.P.) and a SpiderTech™ Kinesiology Taping Therapist.
The four major functions and effects of Kinesio Taping®:
- Reduce pain
- Correct joint malalignment and improve proprioception
- Normalize muscle function
- Improve lymphatic and blood flow
Conventional athletic tape is designed to restrict and support the movement of the injured body part to protect the area from further damage. In contrast, Kinesio tape not only offers the support needed, but allows the patient complete range of motion during the rehabilitation process to facilitate the ultimate therapeutic modality, exercise.
Kinesio Tape is a cloth tape that dries quickly, is water resistant, and allows for regular showering an bathing.
Dr. Rothman offers Kinesio Taping® as a adjunct therapy to maximize results from chiropractic treatments and/or other services being provided. Patients can also choose to receive this therapy as a stand-alone treatment.
