Kinesiology taping is a method of athletic taping that can help support and stabilize muscles and joints while the body undergoes the natural healing process. Dr.Gugerli uses KT taping and other tapes to help competitive or recreational athletes achieve pain relief. These expert taping techniques allow patients to stay active and enjoy safe participation in sports with noticeably less pain. The pain-relieving benefits of kinesiology taping extend beyond just sports injuries. Those suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, bursitis, tennis elbow, swelling and sprains, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, and plantar fasciitis can be co-treated with taping.

How Does Kinesiology Taping Work?

Kinesiology taping is an athletic tape uniquely designed to mirror the elasticity of skin and muscles. Its patented technology enables a full range of motion, unlike other athletic tapings that are restrictive and interferes with performance.

Dr.Gugerli knows when and how to apply the tape to create the best stabilizing, pain-relieving, and circulatory effects. The goal of kinesiology tape is to effectively stabilize the joints and stretch the muscles with restricting movement or compressing skin in an uncomfortable way. The tape is sweat-proof, waterproof, and extremely durable, lasting for several days. Additionally, the adhesive is hypoallergenic, making it non-irritating.

Benefits of Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping allows for improved rehabilitation and helps limit pain in three distinct ways:


  • Alleviates strain on affected muscles
  • Prevents painful or harmful muscle extension
  • Dynamically improves postural positions


  • Restores normal muscle activation and functional stability
  • Promotes nervous system changes necessary for healing
  • Enhances sensory stimulation for pain control


  • Improves flow of blood and oxygen to promote healing and performance
  • Addresses swelling and edema

What You Can Expect from Kinesiology Taping

Patients who use kinesiology tape to boost their rehab can expect pain reduction, improved performance, enhanced circulation and healing, reduced risk for injury, and much more. The tape will also allow the patient/athlete to continue to re-engage in sports much sooner, extending the therapeutic effects of the treatment received at the Swiss Spine Clinic.
