adhesive, elastic tape that can be used in a variety of beneficial ways. When applied correctly,

the tape can help with pain and swelling. It can be used to strengthen weak muscles or give ones

that are working too hard a rest. I use Kinesio Taping for my patients to help them hold

their adjustments longer and enhance the healing effect of care. Kinesio Taping was first

developed in the early 1970s by a Japanese chiropractor named Dr. Kenzo Kase. It came to the

states in the 1990s. Professional athletes of every type can be spotted wearing the colorful tape

on their shoulders, knees or arms but you may have first noticed it on US volleyball player

Kerry Walsh during the 2008 Olympics when she won the gold medal. She wore it on her

shoulder and the news media went nuts trying to figure out why. Elite athletes arent the only

ones benefiting from this method. People around the world in all walks of life are using Kinesio

Taping to help them recover from injuries faster and with less pain.
