Application of Kinesiological Tapes

Article written by: ADINA MATEI, MD, Medical rehabilitation doctor

Rockford Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping consists of applying elastic bandages in key areas of the body, at the muscle level, joint, and/or ligament injuries. It directly stimulates the peripheral and lymphatic circulatory systems, and indirectly, the neurological muscular systems.

What are Kinesiological Tapes? 

Rockford elastic bands are selected and applied to the condition. Physical therapy strips can be applied both on the knees or other joints, but also to solve certain muscle disorders. They have elastic consistency (up to 150-160%) and are breathable and water-resistant so that the areas on which they are applied will not be irritated, and the strips will not degrade until the term of application of new ones. The Kinesio tape can remain applied on the body for about 3 to 5 days, during which time the bandage will act in maximum efficiency parameters.

Centrokinetic Clinic is distinguished by the fact that it does not use a common kinesiological technique but Rockford therapy which differs by the fact that it uses some of the highest quality tapes in the world, with 170% elasticity, water-resistant, hypoallergenic, cotton, and application is a special one.

The benefits of Rockford kinesiology therapy

Kinesio Taping Rockford is a fast-acting therapy, being used by many high-performance athletes, such as Serena Williams, Michael Phelps, or David Beckham. It is also a comfortable treatment and gives the patient full freedom of movement - the bandages do not impede the fluidity of the body's natural movement.
Another advantage of kinesiotaping is the complementarity with other treatments, which potentiates the effects of manual therapies and other alternative therapies such as hydrotherapy or cryotherapy.
