Kenesio Taping in Colchester
If you are looking for kinesio taping in Colchester, Bodyworks Physiotherapy has got you covered. We offer both K tape and Rocktape in a variety of colours and patterns, however this is purely for aesthetic reasons. Kinesio taping is well known for improving the performance of athletes and preventing injury. Kinesiology taping is also effective for acute injuries with significant swelling, repetitive strain injuries, neck and back pain caused by poor posture, and to support joints. We are able to perform kinesio therapy in Colchester on athletes of all ages but we tend to avoid taping broken skin, infected areas, and those with tape allergies. Simply book a consultation at Bodyworks Physiotherapy and we will discuss the most suitable course of action for your needs.

The benefits of Kinesiology Taping:
Pain relief – It helps to reduce the pressure on pain receptors in the body
Reduces swelling – Due to the decompression affect of the tape, altering fluid dynamics
Controls posture – It acts as an elastic reminder of where your body or limbs should be
Normalises muscle activity
Delays muscle fatigue
Improves proprioception and co ordination – decreasing the risk of injury
Optimizes injury recovery
Allows athletes to remain active whilst injured.
Kinesiology taping is an excellent adjunct to physiotherapy treatment. It can help to prolong the effects achieved by mobilisation and soft tissue techniques used by the therapist and patients can be taught how to apply tape to themselves to continue this effect.
In some cases, existing patients may want to book in for a 10 minute taping appointment prior to attending a sporting event to ensure that the risk of re injury is reduced as much as possible.
