TREATING EVERYONE FROM LOCAL HEROES TO OLYMPIC ATHLETES

 

August 6, 2012

MILL CREEK, WA -- Integrated Rehabilitation Group (IRG) has physical and hand therapists that have training in the Kinesio Taping Certification Program. Kinesio Taping is performed on amateur and professional athletes to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain, prevent injury, and promote lymphatic flow and healing. Kinesio Tape is an alternate method to the traditional white athletic tape, in that it provides support to athletes and reduces pain.

Kinesio Taping has been proven to work for athletes across the globe. In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the pink, blue, beige and black strips of Kinesio Taping were seen on countless Olympians. From volleyball, to basketball to water polo, Olympians swore by the benefits of Kinesio Taping. This year, Kerri Walsh has been sporting black kinesiotape in the 2012 London Olympics due to a prior torn rotator cuff. Even Lance Armstrong wore Kinesio Tape when he went for his seventh Tour de France victory. IRG’s certified therapists are eager to educate you in this revolutionary rehabilitation method at any of their 27 clinic’s.
