Kinesio® Taping method involves utilizing a special elastic-like tape over and around muscles and/or joints in order to assist and give support to affected tissues as well as to prevent over-contraction. While most people think of tape as a restrictor of motion, this type is designed to support and facilitate normal motion. With this method the patient can still be a full participant in the activities which he or she desires, just with a bit of aid. Just ask any Olympic, professional, collegiate or amateur athletes of any sport how helpful it can be! Dr. Zimmerman is fully trained in this cutting edge method.
