How will Kinesio taping in Staten Island, NY help me?

Kinesio tape is made of a flexible material that allows for freedom of movement. This type of tape is primarily used to aid movement and reduce pain. Furthermore, Kinesio taping is thought to be capable of reducing inflammation, promoting post-surgical healing, optimizing performance, preventing injury, promoting good circulation, and assisting the body’s natural healing process.

Kinesio tape is used with athletes to improve sports performance components such as:

  • Strength
  • Proprioception (i.e., static and dynamic balance)
  • Power
  • Jumping ability (vertical and horizontal)
  • Speed and agility

It is also used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, such as:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Runner’s knee
  • Hamstring pulls
  • Calf/Achilles strains
  • Rotator cuff problems
  • Back pain

Kinesio tape is used to help relieve pain so you can return to your normal active lifestyle!

What can I expect from Kinesio taping?


Most injuries require immediate rehabilitation to ensure the quickest possible recovery. A physical therapist with experience in sports rehabilitation will thoroughly evaluate the athlete to determine the severity of the injury and to identify any other weaknesses or limitations that may affect the athlete’s recovery, stability, or strength.

Following that, your therapist at Grasmere Physical Therapy in Staten Island, NY will design a targeted, individualized plan of care for you in order to promote accelerated recovery and future injury prevention.

For example, your physical therapist will begin by addressing pain and restoring mobility to the injured area. Kinesio taping is an effective way to speed up your recovery.

Following that, we will concentrate on advancing your program in order to restore function, improve performance, and prevent injuries. We will use Kinesio taping to stimulate your nervous system, healing, and overall recovery throughout your rehabilitation process.
