NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent appearance on Fox 5 News, Certified New York City (NYC) Chiropractic and Sports Physician, Dr. Rolland Nemirovsky of Manhattan Sports Therapy, shared the musculoskeletal rationale behind the prevalence of kinesiology tape among athletes. Increasing in popularity over the 2008 and 2012 Olympic games, kinesiology taping is used for sports performance, as well as back pain treatment, neck pain treatment, herniated discs, shoulder injuries, knee injuries, plantar fasciitis, and even chronic headaches.
"Kinesiology, like many other physical therapies, can be just as effective on the streets of Manhattan as in the professional sports arena," explains Dr. Nemirovsky, who uses a blend of sports medicine techniques along with proven therapies like Active Release Technique (ART) and non-surgical spinal decompression to restore pain-free mobility for everyone from busy professionals to dedicated exercisers and athletes.
Dr. Nemirovsky stresses, "You don't have to be a professional athlete to get in on the many restorative and pain-relieving therapies available today. But you do need a thorough and accurate diagnosis of your condition in order to find the right treatment."
Kinesiology works by supporting injured tissues during the healing process. By seamlessly integrating with the body's natural skin, kinesiology tape adds stability to facilitate normal muscle glide. It's waterproof and sweat-proof, and one application can last for days.
The founding principle of physical care, like that provided by Dr. Nemirovsky, is the conservative optimization of the body's entire kinetic chain to achieve and preserve pain-free mobility. Simply put, by isolating the source of your pain, he can layer the most effective hands-on treatments to repair damaged soft tissues and joints.
Correcting musculoskeletal imbalances and instabilities from acute injury or long-term wear and tear is often highly effective in warding off invasive surgeries. "It's a very well-rounded, research-based approach to pain relief that helps most patients achieve lasting, long-term results," says Dr. Nemirovsky.
And while kinesiology tape is available at most sporting goods stores, Dr. Nemirovsky stresses that, "You really can't achieve optimal tape results without thorough training in proper placement. Until you have a professional diagnosis, self-treatment and playing through the pain can do more harm than good."
Whether you're a high-performing athlete or an on-the-go pain sufferer, Dr. Nemirovsky can design the right injury recovery and prevention plan for you.
