Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping

Alleviate Pain, Enhance Performance and Facilitate Rehabilitation

When an athlete suffers an injury, the outcome and implications are often more severe than for a normal person. Kinesio Taping is a new and effective treatment for muscle/joint dysfunction. This taping method is fundamentally different to other athletic taping techniques. Using a highly elastic and unique adhesive tape called Kinesio Tex, alongside specialist Kinesio Taping applications, the method gives muscles support, even during intense activity, without affecting circulation or range of motion.

Kinesio tape can be used to treat a virtually limitless number of injuries.  It can be used to reduce swelling in a new injury or alleviate chronic pain in older injuries.  It mimics the qualities of human skin and enhances muscular, joint and circulatory function.  Kinesio tape is approved for any stage of injury and can also be valuable in injury prevention.  By using Kinesio tape, athletes can continue their training and sporting activities despite injury. 

Book in for an appointment if you feel Kinesio taping could help you.

Kinesio Tape is available to buy in PhysioWorksNI.

Most of us will experience back pain at some part in our lives.

Pain can come on suddenly or gradually. The spine is made up of 24 vertebrae, discs, ligaments that hold the bones together, tendons that connect the muscles to the vertebrae, the spinal cord, nerves and muscles.

Due to this complex structure, even small amounts of damage to any part of the spine can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Physiotherapy can help to significantly reduce pain and improve movement by using techniques such as:

Manipulation Massage Myofascial release Traction Acupuncture Electrotherapy Advice and exercise programmes

Following assessment a structured treatment programme is designed specifically for you.

As pain reduces movement improves and with further advice and exercises, physiotherapy will get you back to normal activities as quickly as possible. We have found Pilates based exercises are a great way to reduce pain and improve the condition of the spine. It can be introduced relatively early on in your treatment programme to ease symptoms and if continued can help to strengthen the back, improve the flexibility and posture and help to prevent reoccurance.

We are finding that more and more people are using Pilates to help back pain – from the office worker to the professional athlete.
