What Is Kinesiotaping and McConnell Taping Therapy?

Kinesio Tape (KT), or kinesiology tape, is a newly popularized modality that is used by therapists trained in the Kinesio Taping Method by Certified Kinesio Taping Instructors (CKTI).

Kinesio Tape is a latex-free hypoallergenic cotton fiber tape with an acrylic heat-activated backing that stretches only along its longitudinal axis.

The McConnell Taping Method is a technique that tapes body parts to affect a specific biomechanical movement.

What Our Clients Say

Evan “ejhawksgaming23” L

I came to Professional Physical Therapy with nothing but optimism but I was afraid I would never get confidence back in my ankle. With the help of these wonderful people in this great family-like environment I am back and feeling even stronger, and am already back into basketball. ProPT made me feel confident in my ankle and I am very excited for next football.

I came in with neck pain, from poor posture. From the beginning and throughout treatment the entire staff has been attentive from being greeted by name upon arrival to listening carefully to my concerns and responding with professional information. Everyone had a sincere desire to listen to my goals and help me attain them! I am 100% back to normal! Thanks Dr. Jill!
