The team at OnForm Physiotherapy are trained Kinesio Tape practitioners who have the experience and skill to maximize the potential of the Kinesio taping method.
The Kinesio taping method has taken the Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine world by storm. This taping method was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago in Japan. Since then, Kinesio Taping has become the 'gold' standard for therapeutic and rehabilitative taping for treatment of muscular disorders and the management of lymphoedema and swelling
The Kinesio taping method is based on a simple principle that the body has built-in healing mechanisms which we can help to positively influence by removing barriers that impede them. Kinesio tape provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered in your physiotherapy session; basically it's like taking your physiotherapists hands home with you! The results include increased fluid flow through an injured area, better control over muscle contractions, reduced pain, and ultimately faster healing.
"Without the tape I was struggling to run more than 1km due to a calf strain, which was not ideal in my build up to the Auckland marathon. After seeing the guys at OnForm and applying the tape I was able to almost immediately resume my training regime and completed the marathon. Try it and you will see!"
"I had been suffering from a sore shoulder for months and nothing was really helping, with the Kinesio tape I gained a lot more movement with significantly less pain! It's great stuff"
"After a bad fall down some stairs my knees were black and blue. I had the Kinesio tape applied to help reduce the swelling and within days where the tape had been no bruising remained! I was skeptical at first but couldn't argue with the results!"
"I played the entire club rugby season with hamstrings that cramped near the end of every game. These guys looked after me in the Auckland rugby team and I never had problems again when using the Kinesio tape"
"I have tried everything to resolve my knee pain! I don't know how it did it but the Kinesio tape worked a treat"
