Kinesio Taping

kinesio tapingEven if you’ve played sports and never needed a joint or muscle taped, you’ve probably seen an athlete who did.

Kinesio taping provides support and stability, without cutting off circulation despite patients wearing the tape 24-hours-a-day. It can also reduce pain and inflammation, relaxing muscles so you have a more range of motion.

Some of the conditions it’s used for include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Athletic injury prevention
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Groin injuries
  • Knee pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Whiplash

If you’re in pain, Kinesio taping might help. But if you still need help, see your doctor and ask if acupuncture could help you.

Chiropractic Rehabilitation & Acupuncture now accepts Healthy Indiana Plan for chiropractic services, and most insurance for chiropractic therapy and acupuncture.

Dr. Ferguson also offers a noninvasive low-energy or low-level laser therapy that is Food and Drug Administration approved for temporary pain relief. But most insurance plans don’t cover it just yet.
