Dr. Lopez is certified in the Kinesio Taping Method, a technique that’s used to reduce muscle pain and inflammation, as well as relax, activate and support muscles. Taping is typically used in the acute stages, when a patient is experiencing inflamed or tight muscles.
According to Dr. Lopez, Kinesio Tape can also be an effective way to maintain muscle tone and flexibility. For this reason, it is a popular service with professional athletes and runners. Here at Summit Chiropractic, we are happy to offer taping for our patient athletes.
As a whole, taping can be used to:
- Activate and re-educate muscles
- Optimize muscle performance
- Prevent injury
- Promote improved circulation
- Promote faster healing
- Reduce pain and inflammation
