Dynamic Tape - Innovative Therapeutic Taping

27 July, 2017 4 comments Leave a comment

Dynamic Tape is not a kinesiology or athletic tape. It is a Biomechanical Tape, an entirely new category of sports and therapeutic taping. Dynamic Tape is an innovative, 4-way stretching tape with strong elastic resistance and recoil of varying grades, absorb and inject force to reduce the workload on the body, especially injured issues.

Dynamic Tape is a revolution in taping:

  • it is composed of a synthetic, stretch nylon & lycra cloth
  • it is designed to stretch in all directions (4-way stretching) as opposed to only a longitudinally (2-way stretching)
  • it has many times the resistance and recoil, likened to a bungee cord
  • it can stretch to over 200% of its resting length with no restrictive end point. This prevents the tape from being applied with the body part in a shortened position while maintaining full range
  • it is designed to work mechanically, designed to optimise movement patterns while absorbing load and re-injecting that energy back into movement, all without limiting range of motion

How Well Do Hip Exercises Help Relieve Chronic Low Back Pain?

11 November, 2016 2 comments Leave a comment

We’ve all heard the lectures preaching how hip mobility and strength is a common answer to alleviating low back pain; and per the mobility/stability continuum (Thanks for the review, Dr. Mike Voight!), it makes sense. But can we ‘back’ it up with some data? Last year, researcher Sang Lee and colleagues conducted a study to compare hip range of motion between a lumbar stability group and a lumbar instability group. They also investigated the effectiveness of hip exercises for low-back pain patients with lumbar instability, using lumbar stabilization to strengthen muscles to support the spine and prevent low back pain...

Shoulder, neck and upper back pain are often associated with posture problems and can get in the way of everyday activities.

Grab some TheraBand Kinesiology Tape and let’s get started!

Kinesiology taping for posture correction

Most published research on postural improvement after kinesiology taping are case studies. Back in 2013, Hwang-Bo et al.studied the effects of kinesiology taping in a female sedentary worker with rounded shoulder posture. Kinesiology tape was applied with approximately 50-60% stretch to accommodate for a more rounded posture in the dominant upper back and shoulder, and approximately 40-50% stretch in the non-dominant upper back and shoulder, without stretch at the end of the tape, while holding the shoulder retraction posture.

After one month of kinesiology taping, the rounded shoulder posture improved progressively and the dominant upper back pain gradually disappeared. The patient no longer complained of dominant upper back pain during deskwork.

Watch as our tape guru Dr. Greg Doerr breaks down his
postural correction kinesiology taping!
