KINESIOLOGY TAPE IS AN ELASTIC TAPE APPLIED TO THE SKIN USED TO DECREASE PAIN AND PROMOTE BLOOD FLOW TO THE REGION.

Kinesiology Tape

Kinesiology tape stimulates receptors in the skin which helps to decrease pain in the area. The tape also lifts the skin away from the muscles and fascia which promotes blood to the area to accelerate the healing process. Unlike traditional athletic tape, kinesiology tape is stretchy so that it promotes movement instead of restricting it.

Dr. Schreiber is certified in three types of kinesiology tape; RockTape, Spider-Tech and Kinesiotape. Kinesiology tape is useful for restoring posture, decreasing swelling and inflammation, preventing over-contraction of muscles after an injury, and providing support to an injured area. Kinesiology tape is a great adjunct all the other services that MN Spine and Sport has to offer.
