If you are suffering from any of the conditions mentioned or are interested in obtaining more information regarding Kinesio Taping, please contact the Anthony Medical & Chiropractic Center team.

The primary purpose of kinesio taping is to not only provide support for joints and muscles, but also to aid in the elimination of pain and increase both lymph drainage and blood flow.  Our chiropractors at Anthony Medical & Chiropractic Center have been properly trained in the application of kinesio tape to help correct abnormal muscle function.  Through the alleviation of the stress effecting the musculature, pressure is relived from nearby nerves, blood, and lymph vessels.  As these systems begin to function properly, inflammation and pain begin to decrease, and the restoration of full range of motion is accomplished.
