Functional taping is a specialized form of taping that has been used in various chiropractic, physical therapy, medical, and orthopedic clinics for many years.

Purpose of Functional Taping in Downtown Dallas TX

The primary purpose of functional taping is to not only provide support for joints and muscles but also to aid in the elimination of pain and increase both lymph drainage and blood flow.  Our chiropractors at Expressions Chiropractic of Dallas PC have been properly trained in the application of functional tape to help correct abnormal muscle function.  Through the alleviation of the stress affecting the musculature, pressure is relieved from nearby nerves, blood, and lymph vessels.  As these systems begin to function properly, inflammation and pain begin to decrease, and the restoration of the full range of motion is accomplished.  In contrast to traditional taping methods that are primarily utilized to reduce motion and stabilize the joint, functional taping is applied in such a way that doesn’t cause compression of the underlying structures.
