Kinesio Taping

Kinesio taping is a chiropractic technique designed to promote the body’s natural healing process while providing support to muscles and joints without restricting range of motion. Kinesio taping alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.

Dr. Singer applies the tape over and around the muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. Depending on what the initial chiropractic exam revealed, Dr. Singer will apply the kinesio tape in a formation best suited to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, enhance performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.

Here are some important facts about kinesio taping:

  • The tape is a latex-free hypoallergenic cotton fiber tape with an acrylic heat-activated backing.
  • The kinesio tape itself has no medicinal purposes – its healing properties come from its
    activation of neurological and circulatory systems.
  • The kinesio tape can be worn for days at a time.
  • The kinesio tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric.
  • The thickness and weight of the kinesio tape approximates the weight and thickness of skin.

What are the chiropractic benefits of kinesio taping?

  • Allows muscles greater contractility, which in turn pushes more fluid through the muscle,
    resulting in better muscle performance
  • Reduces muscle fatigue
  • Increases range of motion
  • Improves joint alignment by affecting the muscles and fascia and can reduce poor function of a
    joint by influencing opposing muscle groups and joint mobility
  • Reduces scarring and adhesions
  • Hastens the healing of sports injuries

Dr. Singer uses kinesio taping in conjunction with a multitude of other chiropractic treatments and modalities to both prevent sports injuries and to rehabilitate patients experiencing pain. USA Health and Therapy uses this chiropractic technique to treat: carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, and ankle sprains.

  • " Have been adjusted by over 50 chiros in my life and Dr Craig is right up there with the best. His method of relaxing each client (hydro-jet-bed then massage) before the adjustment really helps. There is also a physical therapist with his own therapy room to help get your range of motion back like he did for me. VERY REASONABLE pricing and VERY flexible hours SO PLEASE be nice and try to avoid his lunch hour so he and his staff can eat because the poor guy refuses to say no. "
