You have probably seen that funny looking colorful tape on someone at the supermarket and thought what the heck is that? Well that magical stuff is called Kinesio tape or K-tape for short. I call it magical because when I first started using it on patients I had no idea how it worked, but it did. The science behind it is that the tape pulls the skin away from the muscle and allows more circulation and blood flow to that area of the body. Aiding in the body's natural healing process and allowing that area to heal faster. This works great with musculoskeletal issues and joint issues. Along with additional medical and chiropractic therapies that we use at Adjust Dallas we are able to speed up the body's haling process and get amazing results. So next time you see someone with all that tape on, now you know why. Unless they are crossfitters, then they are wearing it because they think it looks cool. ;)
