Kinesiology Taping for Back Pain

The only thing more numerous than the types of back pain are the variety of options available to treat it. Back pain sufferers typically progress from over-the-counter liniments and pain relievers to manual therapies like massage, chiropractic, decompression and PT. If these don’t work, medical intervention may follow in the form of prescription pain medications and muscle relaxers or, ultimately, surgery.  What works for one person may not work for another, leaving many sufferers wondering if they – or their wallets – will ever find relief.

When applied properly, it can provide relief from painful and common back injuries, like sciatica, herniated disks or simple muscle inflammation.
