Kinesiology taping is a method of athletic taping designed to support and stabilize muscles and joints during the body’s natural healing process. As a sports medicine specialist, Dr. Nemirovsky applies kinesiology taping in New York City in the treatment of many recreational and competitive athletes, as well as patients in need of general pain relief. Through his expert taping techniques patients are able to stay active and safely participate in sports with significantly less pain.
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 has extensive experience in applications that provide the best stabilizing, pain-relieving, and circulatory effects. Targeted tape placement effectively stabilizes joints and stretches muscles without restricting movement or compressing the skin.
While kinesiology taping uses sweat-proof, waterproof, and durable tape that last for several days, the adhesive is hypoallergenic and non-irritating. The tape is the same weight and thickness as skin, allowing it to integrate naturally with the body’s sensory system.
Benefits of Kinesiology Taping
Kinesiology taping addresses rehabilitation and pain needs in three distinct ways:
Alleviates strain on affected muscles
Prevents painful or harmful muscle extension
Dynamically improves postural positions
Restores normal muscle activation and functional stability
Promotes nervous system changes necessary for healing
