  • (1888PressRelease) September 10, 2012 - BOZEMAN, MONTANA - Dr. Jonathan Wilhelm, of Pro Chiropractic, is proud to announce that he is trained and Certified in all aspects of Kinesiology and Kinesio Taping, previously only available to elite athletes. All of the major sports teams, and Olympic athletes, make use of this effective healing technology. Sports coaches insist on only using medical care providers that are proficient in the Kinesio Taping Methodology.

    As the only physician in SW Montana to receive this advanced certification, Dr. Jon Wilhelm cautions folks to not attempt to use this tape by themselves. In a recent interview, Dr. Jon said: "A patient can do more harm than good, if they apply the Kinesio Tape incorrectly", he goes on to say: " The Kinesio Taping method offers a high level of pain reduction, and tissue healing, but only if applied by a professional". Pro Chiropractic adds this specialty to its growing list of Certifications.

    Kinesio Tex Tape facilitates rehabilitation by both supporting your muscles, and allowing them to move. While traditional athletic tape limits the range of motion to constrict muscle movement, this tape creates a bridge over the injured part of the body, allowing the patient an increased range of motion and the ability to perform movements. It has also been shown to reduce scars in some patients. Once placed on the skin, the Kinesio Tape pulls the upper layers of skin, creating more space between the dermis and the muscle. The increased space helps you rehabilitate in a number of ways.

    To understand how the Kinesio Taping heals, one must understand the significance of its action on the fascia, which is the material that divides and separates your muscles from your internal organs. Lymph channels pass through the fascia, between the bone and the muscle, and the skin and the muscle. These channels remove fluids and chemical substances in the muscles. When injured, the flow of lymph can be either restricted or increased, resulting in an accumulation of fluid behind the congested area. This results in swelling that decreases the space between the muscle and skin, causing pain.

    Kinesio Taping sets a new standard in Athletic Taping, just as Pro Chiropractic sets a new standard in Chiropractic Care. Now a person seeking relief from the pain of sports injuries, or any other kind of pain, can come to just one clinic setting, and take advantage of the latest methods and modalities in use today for healing, as well as maintaining good health. You are invited to stop by the office, and say hello to Dr. Jon and his friendly and caring staff.
