Now Introducing Kinesio Tape in Woodbury MN!

Aspire Integrated Health St. Paul, Minnesota is now adding Kinesio taping into the practice.

What is Kinesio tape in Woodbury MN?

This special, stretchy tape has the flexibility to stretch lengthwise by about 55-60% of it's resting length. This degree of stretch is relatively close resembling the elastic qualities of human skin. The elastic qualities of the tape are effective from 3-5 days before the elastic polymer diminishes. The elastic polymer strands are wrapped by 100% cotton fibers. The cotton fibers do allow for quick drying. The adhesive used is 100% acrylic and it is heat activated. The skin must be free of oils and moisture prior to application.

There are 6 different ways to use Kinesio tape: Mechanical, fascia, space, ligament/tendon, functional and lymphatic. Depending on what the patient needs will inform the doctor on what kind of technique should be used.

What can Kinesio tape help with? There are many different things that Kinesio taping can help with such as:

  • Sprains/strains
  • bursitis
  • carpal tunnel
  • fascia correction
  • frozen shoulder
  • chondromalacia
