Does Kinesio Tape Herniated Disc Treatment Help Cervical Herniated Disc Pain?
Is Kinesio Tape herniated disc treatment helpful? Will taping help pain from a cervical herniated disc?
Kinesio Taping method utilizes an elastic tape that puts tension on the skin and repositions and lifts the skin which theoretically opens the flow of blood and lymphatics to the arm and neck. It may be used as a non-surgical treatment for the slipped disk.
Physical Therapist, Andrea Wolkenberg, is a strong believer in this treatment modality and explains how it may benefit patients who are suffering from pain, numbness and tingling down the arm from a herniated disc. The bottom line is that the Kinesio Tape herniated disc treatment is safe and may give temporary partial relief of some of the symptoms of a herniated cervical disc; however, it will not have a direct effect on the disc fragment that is compressing the nerve.
