Myofascial Taping

Myofascial TapingMyofascial Taping (Kinesiology taping) is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation.

RockTape Myofascial Taping is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions. The method used by Optimum physiotherapists will not only offer you the support you are looking for, but also help to rehabilitate the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, RockTape Myofascial Taping may alleviate pain as well as facilitate lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas while also providing mobilisation to the myofascial junction.
