Although used in a wide variety of clinical settings, the growth of kinesiology taping in chiropractic practices has been nothing short of phenomenal. Just this month, a comprehensive article on kinesiology taping was published in the American Chiropractic Association  News (see link at bottom of post for complete article).

Kinesiology Taping and Chiropractic-A Natural Fit

st_application_shoulderKinesiology taping is an ideal modality for use in chiropractic settings. Chiropractors possess an in-depth understanding of the interplay between the body’s neurological system, muscular system and its structural and fascial frameworks. Effective kinesiology taping involves all of these systems, allowing chiropractors to quickly grasp the principles and techniques for applying kinesiology tape.

Kinesiology tape works best as one component of a patient’s treatment plan, which makes it an ideal fit with other clinical modalities. It can be applied at the end of a visit, after an adjustment and any other treatments have been completed. Because a kinesio taping application can remain comfortably in place for several days, it can reinforce and extend the benefits of the in-office procedures.

As word about the benefits of kinesiology taping spreads, more and more patients are actively seeking practitioners who offer kinesiology taping as part of their clinical programs. Offering kinesiology taping can enhance retention of current patients as well as attract new patients who may not have previously considered chiropractic as a treatment for their injuries or health conditions.

Chiropractors can learn about kinesiology taping through online sources, by reading  kinesiology taping instruction manuals or by taking kinesiology taping certification programs.
