Therapeutic Taping is a method designed to facilitate the bodies natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the bodies range of motion. It alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage. It can be applied to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, optimize performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing.
At Renew Physiotherapy we strive to make your treatment as comfortable and pleasant as possible. If pain management is among your goals, your plan will likely include modalities such as Laser, Acupuncture, Ultrasound, IFC or TENS.
