Kinesiotape

Kinesiotape is a specialized form of taping we’ve used at Deutsch Chiropractic in Watertown for many years. Kinesio taping is utilized in top health care facilities across the world, and world class athletes including Lance Armstong, David Beckam, Kerri Walsh, and Serena Williams have recognized its benefits.

The primary purpose of kinesio taping is to provide support for joints and muscles, but also aid in the elimination of pain and increase both lymph drainage and blood flow.

Dr. Fred and Dr. Kathleen have been trained in the application of kinesio tape to help correct abnormal muscle function.  By decompressing areas of swelling and inflammation, kinesio tape helps to relieve pressure from nearby nerves, blood, and lymph vessels.
