Kinesio® Tape and Rock Tape are types of therapeutic tapes that are flexible, adhesive, latex-free and non-medicated that work with the body to help it to heal and return to optimal performing capabilities. It can be used in conjunction with other physical therapy treatments/techniques to help with many diagnoses for all populations from pediatrics to geriatrics. Kinesio® Tape and Rock Tape can be used in many ways depending on the person’s needs after evaluation, such as, being used to decrease pain and inflammation, increase circulation, and re-educating the neuromuscular system.
After an evaluation, Kinesio® Tape and Rock Tape may be applied to the area of your body that is painful, swollen, limited in mobility, or limited in stability. The tape will move with you as you move that specific body part and should not cause or increase pain. You can wear the tape for several days, typically up to 3-5 days if you feel that it is comfortable and helping your condition.
You are all AMAZING!!! Amber and Jolene are the best! When Abbie became injured 1 1/2 years ago in dance- something she loved to do, she went through 3 doctors, another physical therapists, many painful procedures and finally found a Dr. Hedlund who sent us to Hulst Jepsen where she was blessed with 2 amazing therapist and their staff! Abbie thought she may never dance again! She had many ups and downs in her therapy but no one ever gave up on her. They always listened to her and helped her do her best!
