Kinesiology taping is a method of athletic taping that can help support and stabilize muscles and joints while the body undergoes the natural healing process. As a Manhattan sports medicine specialist, Dr. Nemirovsky uses kinesiology taping to help recreational and competitive athletes gain general pain relief. These expert taping techniques allow patients to stay active and enjoy safe participation in sports with noticeably less pain. The pain-relieving benefits of kinesiology taping extend beyond just sports injuries. Those suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), lower back pain, herniated disc, knee pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, bursitis, tennis elbow, swelling and sprains, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, and even headaches can be co-treated with taping.
Kinesiology taping uses 100% cotton athletic tape uniquely designed to mirror the elasticity of skin and muscles. Its patented technology enables full range of motion, unlike other athletic taping that is restrictive and interferes with performance.
As an expert in kinesiology taping, Dr. Nemirovsky knows how to apply the tape to create the best stabilizing, pain-relieving, and circulatory effects. The goal of kinesiology tape is to effectively stabilize the joints and stretch the muscles with restricting movement or compressing skin in an uncomfortable way. The tape is sweat-proof, waterproof, and extremely durable, lasting for several days. Additionally, the adhesive is hypoallergenic, making it non-irritating.
Kinesiology taping allows for improved rehabilitation and helps limit pain in three distinct ways:
Patients who use kinesiology tape to boost their rehab can expect pain reduction, improved performance, enhanced circulation and healing, reduced risk for injury, and much more. Those who use the tape also are able to continue to re-engage in sports much sooner, extending the therapeutic effects of this rehab treatment long after the appointment with Dr. Nemirovsky has passed.
