Coastal Hand Therapy provides kinesio taping, which can assist with scar management, function and reducing pain, therefore helping to assist a patient's recovery.

Kinesio taping is believed to have different benefits on injuries and muscle treatments, including:

  • It helps reduce pain by modulating how nociceptors (pain receptors) process. It lifts skin, hence reducing pressure on these fine subcutaneous nociceptors.
  • It can have a positive impact on range of movement through increasing the blood circulation in the taped areas.
  • It can increase the feeling of muscle strength by producing a concentric pull on the fascia(under skin) which may stimulate muscle contraction.
