Transcript of Taping 1

Please remember Blow dry tape
Do Not leave tape on skin if patient has skin irritation or inching
Do Not pull patient into position with tape NEVER Apply to clean dry skin
Round edges
NO TENSION to the ends
Anchor to skin when possible
Move joint being taped THROUGH full ROM prior the applying tape
Allow 30 min before water immersion or physical activity
Avoid touching adhesive tape Helpful Hints for Best Result Diabetes
Kidney disease
Healing of fragile skin
Pregnancy?? Precautions Position the subject with lateral side bending into stretch
Off paper tension
AC joint pulling toward C7
Or visa versa for activation Upper Trap Inhibition/Activation Facilitate muscle activation
15-35% tension
Used for:
Chronic condition
rehab Proximal to Distal (Origin to Insertion) Distal to Proximal (Insertion to Origin)

Proximal to Distal (Origin to Insertion)
Tape Application Direction Therapeutic Direction – recoil of the tape toward the anchor Kinesio Definitions The application of tape changes the tension elements within tissue
Tissue react and compensates to changes in tension (within tissue) Biotensegrity Muscle Imbalance “Kinesio Taping application promote tissue mobility to break surface adhesions”
Through “convolutions”? Fascia Skin
Joint Systems Affected Intended to limit motion
Protect joint or soft tissue with compression forces
Should be removed after short time Athletic tape How is it different from other tape? LATEX FREE Athletics Chiropractor
Fonder of Kinesio Taping Dr. Kenzo Kase Day 1
Characteristic of Kinesio Tape
Differences from other taping methods
Basic principles of Kinesio Tape
Day 2
Corrective techniques
Application Objectives Mathew Frazier PT, DPT, MS, ATC Kinesiotape Horses Too Malignancy
Active cellulitis or skin infection
Over open wounds (including surgical sites)
Over DVT Contraindications Inhibit Muscle Activation
Very light stretch 15-25% stretch
Off paper tension
Used for
Acute Pain
Muscle spam Distal to Proximal (Insertion to Origin) Therapeutic Zone – Region of tape over the targeted tissue Kinesio Definitions Super light 0-10%
Paper off 10-15%
Light 15-25%
Moderate 25-35%
Severe 50-75%
Full 75-100% Tape Tension I strip – tension focused directly over target tissue
Y strip – tension dispersed “though and between” the 2 tails over target tissue
X cut – tension directly over target tissue and dispersed though tails
Fan cut – tension dispersed over target tissue though multiple tails Kinesio Tape Terms Comes from Tensegrity
Compressive and tension
Use of rigid structures
Flex able structures
Fascia Biotensegrity Balancing agonist and antagonist
Reducing guarding and pain
Supports ligaments and tendons
Improve kinesthetic awareness Joint Pain relieve
Increase ROM
Normalize Length/Tension relationship
Assist tissue recovery
Reduce fatigue Muscles http://www.urbanwellnessclinic.com/blog/2010/9/2/the-miracles-of-kinesio-taping-on-bruises.html Increase interstitial fluid movement
Enhance fluid exchange between tissue layers
Decreased edema
Equalizes temperature Circulatory/Lymphatic Limits motion
Requires cover roll to prevent skin brake down
Short wear time Leukotape/McChonnell Non-medicated
Elastic stretch tape
Applied to paper at 10% stretch
100% cotton fiber
Can stretch up to 40-60% resting length
Only stretches along length of tape
Wave like adhesive pattern Tape Properties Colors:
Beige – first color
Black – developed for athletes
Red (pink) and Blue – developed for color therapy Kinesio Tex Tape It is everywhere!
Wanted to educate myself Why? You can tape
In Conclusion Lift skin causing “convolutions”
“Space created affect muscle function as well as many other tissues”
Creates channels of low pressure in area of congestion
Decrease pain Skin young Old Head Toe Everything in between Don't pull into position Questions?
