Dr. Barnes is a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner and used advanced taping
methods for a variety of ailments. Traditional kinesiology taping methods are good at helping with minor aches and pains, but most significant injuries require a little more than colored tape. Dr. Barnes has studied under some of the finest sports tapers in the country and utilizes a much different approach than most physicians who utilize kinesiology tape. For starters, no tape on earth can help you if it doesn’t stay on. For this reason we only use ROCKTAPE and Spidertech brand tapes in our office. Besides kinesiology tape, we implement five other types of tape in our office.
For example, a patient may walk out of our office with four different types of tape on an IT band injury as opposed to kinesiology tape only. This mix of tape-types is why our patients are able to run and compete in their sports more successfully than with traditional kinesiology tape only. There is no “do everything” tape which is why we use this approach in our office. Taping can help with more conditions than you can imagine and if you’re nursing an injury, it offers exceptional support during the healing process. Unlike most other providers who use 4 standard kinesiology tape colors, we offer more than 25 different colors and patterns to fit your style.
