Elastic Therapeutic Taping

Elastic Therapeutic Taping is a technique in which strips of tape are applied to muscles or joints to achieve physiologic changes in the joints, and, or soft tissue being treated. There are multiple applications of this technique that range from application for lymphatic drainage to structural applications.

 
The lymphatic drainage technique focuses on creating what is referred to as an Accordion Effect. This is created when the tape pulls the skin together creating areas of high and low pressure (ripples in skin) the changes in pressure helps move the fluids (drain the area). This technique is used to reduce swelling and increase the healing time associated with bruising.

 
Structural applications of Elastic Therapeutic Taping provide increased stimulation to mechanoreceptors which in turn have a reflex action in decreasing pain. The structural application also provides a sense of stability to the joint without impeding normal range of motion.
