Neuromascular taping

I am posting this information, thinking that it may help  to reduce chronic pain by intramuscular taping.

Neuromuscular taping is a method based on the body self-healing technique and is used daily in every PT practice out in every physical therapy practice. It is a method and an “essential” skill  used in sports medicine as well as in neurological, orthopedic, trauma and post-operative treatments. It comes in very handy in managing the pediatric populations as well. It is an easily mastered method, it requires minimal investment and it delivers fast results. The latex-free elastic tape can be applied very quickly and can remain in that position for several days (3-5 days); it can easily be removed and is suitable for any patient, irrespective of age and type of injury/disease.

Kinesiotaping alleviates pain and stimulates lymph flow by microscopically lifting the skin, thereby reducing the pressure and increasing the flow. The tape enables wrinkling of the skin which increases the interspace, resulting in a reduction of pressure and irritation of sensory mechanoreceptors. In this way, the “message” is altered and the pain is reduced or disappears altogether.

Neuromuscular taping involves taping around the course of the muscle or directly along the muscle with the aim of offering support to the muscle or preventing its excessive contraction. The first technique enables the therapist to actively support the muscle during the entire range of movement while the patient enjoys total engagement in physical activities with a functional support throughout the day. The second technique, however, helps prevent overuse or excessive contraction (cramping, increased muscle tone) of the muscle; in addition, it stimulates lymph flow throughout the 24-hour period.

By oversight, I have mentioned intramuscular taping, in stead of neuron-muscular taping in the first para of my original posting. Thanks.
This method can be adopted by Chinese meridian experts or acupressure experts.

I used my tape for the first time last night!  Could be placebo but woke up this AM without painful pins and needles in my fingers didnt do much for shoulders, arms, or neck but it is a start.lol I might have to use more tape or adjust the positions but it shows promise.  Hope everyone is having a Happy New Years Day!

Happy new year to you. For taping, i think you may need the help of a physiotherapist. He can point out the place which triggers the pain. Or you may study acupressure and meridiann literature. This will give correct info.Or the company who is mareting tapes, can give you the guide line. I have yet to meet the person who gave this news.
