Kinesio Tape is a specially designed adhesive and highly elastic material. Through adhesion and contraction, the tape lifts the skin creating space between the dermal layers and muscle tissue. Medical professionals posit that the slight lifting disrupts the way pain signals are transmitted to the brain. Kinesio tape is often used in conjunction with treatments listed above.
Laser Light Therapy (LLT)
LLT helps to reduce pain and inflammation by stimulating muscle cells to produce substances conducive to healing. Research has also shown that LLT can trigger the production of stem cells and progenitor cells, which contribute to muscle repair.
Ultrasound Therapy (US)
US uses sounds waves outside of human hearing spectrum to vibrate and stimulate muscle tissue. Vibration of muscle tissue can aid tissue relaxation, improve local blood flow and help breakdown scar tissue. Therapeutic ultrasound is a non-invasive and safe form of muscle treatment.
