New York City is home to one of the most active populations on the planet. Almost every known sport, or hobby can be found here. There are amateur football, rugby, basketball, and even co-ed soccer leagues based in the the city. Amateur athletes often burn the candle at both ends, most have full time jobs and then train for their respective sports after work, and on weekends, and often don’t get enough time to dedicate to rest and proper strength training.
With such a large active population, its no surprise that we also have a large number of people suffering from chronic pain. Some common sports related and general overuse injuries are:
- Chronic back pain
- Patellar tendonitis
- Patellafemoral syndrome
- Shoulder dislocation/ sublaxation
- Plantar fascitis
- Foot and ankle pain
- Bulging/ herniated discs
- Hamstring strains
- Groin injuries
- Rotator cuff injuries
What is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio taping is a revolutionary, and fast growing method of supportive, non restrictive taping, thats been quickly growing in popularity with professional athletes for some time now. It can be used to increase circulation, and provide support to the joints and muscles through their entire range of motion. It was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago. Kinesio taping helps lymphatic drainage allowing the body to flush out toxins and increasing the body’s ability to heal itself.
Kinesio taping along with Chiropractic Care, and Physical Therapy can greatly benefit in reducing pain and speeding healing. Further integrating advanced treatment methods and a personalized program developed to speed healing, reduce pain and improve quality of life faster than invasive surgeries or just employing a singular treatment method.
