While watching the Summer Olympics, many of you may have noticed athletes with brightly colored tape placed on various parts of their body. You may have also wondered what it was and what it is used for. The tape that the Olympians were using is called Kinesiotape.
Kinesiotape was developed with the idea that it would help the body heal itself quickly and effectively. The elastic properties of the tape activate the neurological and circulatory system by affecting muscle function. As many know, muscles control our movement but it also controls the circulation of the venous and lymphatic system. Therefore, muscles that aren’t functioning properly can impair these systems which delay the healing process. The tape can also stimulate receptors in our body that naturally decrease pain.
The idea of Kinesiotape was developed in the 1970’s by a Japanese chiropractor looking for a way to treat a variety of arthritic conditions. Over the forty year history of Kinesiotape, many health care professionals such as chiropractors, orthopedists, acupuncturists, and physical therapists have used the tape to treat many conditions such as: knee conditions, shoulder conditions, whiplash, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, athletic injury prevention and muscular support.
Dr. Dave Bergmann is a Kinesiotape Practitioner
and has taken the certification courses
necessary to properly evaluate and apply kinesiotape in the appropriate way.
If you think that kinesiotape could benefit you, a family member, or a friend please contact the front desk to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bergmann.
It's another sunny July afternoon and your kids are out by the pool, laughing, playing and enjoying the sunshine. (Make sure they’re wearing sunscreen!) You’d love
to join them, but you’re trapped inside again, enduring the pain and frustration
of another migraine headache.
If you suffer from migraines, you’re certainly not alone. They’re relatively common, affecting an estimated 10% of the population. What can be done to get rid of migraines? According to a recent study, chiropractic care may hold the answer.
One hundred and twenty-seven migraine patients (at least one migraine per month) were divided into two groups for comparison. Group 1 received chiropractic adjustments at specific vertebral subluxations determined by the treating practitioner; group 2 served as controls and received inactive treatment (electrical stimulation with no current delivered). Subjects receiving chiropractic adjustments reported substantial improvement in migraine frequency, duration, disability, and medication use following two months of treatment. One in five participants reported a 90% reduction in migraines, and half reported significant improvement in migraine severity.
Are you tired of migraine headaches ruining your day? With conventional over-the-counter medications proving less than effective (and often accompanied by dangerous side effects), it’s time to fight the pain from another angle. To find out more about the potential benefits of chiropractic care, schedule an appointment with your doctor of chiropractic.
