Therapeutic Taping

Therapeutic TapingTherapeutic taping supports almost the entire spectrum of physiotherapy treatments and can provide relief for back problems, muscle tension, joint instabilities or disc problems.

Therapeutic taping is based on two main effects. The first effect is the stimulation of skin receptor which is associated with a reduction in pain. It specifically influences the complex interaction between muscle tension, joints, ligaments and nerves. The second effect occurs when the elastic tape and the special application technique raise the skin and the tissues. This creates more space in the damaged tissues. Lymph fluid can flow more easily, blood circulation improves and the pain receptors are relieved. The improvement in blood circulation alone stimulates the healing process.
