When you think of chiropractic treatment, you might think of office workers suffering from neck strain, or people struggling to recuperate from a lifetime of poor posture. But many patients at our Austin chiropractic office are active athletes, recovering from a wide variety of sports injuries.

We utilize a broad range of treatments and techniques to help athletes get over sports injuries in Austin, from standard, classic therapies, to more cutting-edge ones. Kinesiology tape is one of the many options we offer.

What is Kinesiology Tape?

Often times, athletes or those with injuries will use tape to restrict motion in a particular joint or muscle. But, back in 1979, one chiropractor named Dr. Kase developed a new method of treating injured muscles by called the Kinesio Taping Method.

The theory behind utilizing kinesiology tape is based on the fact that muscles actually heal faster if they are kept mobile. Therapeutic placement of kinesiology tape opens up injured muscles and allows lymphatic fluid to flow around the damage tissue and cleanse it.

While some individuals have tried kinesiology taping their own injuries, it’s important to have a trained practitioner, like our Austin chiropractor Dr. Shaddock, assist you in deciding if kinesiology taping is the right choice for your particular injury.

The good news is that no matter the nature of your injury, be it sports or otherwise, now is the best time to pay a visit to our Austin chiropractic clinic.
