Specialty Taping can Decrease Pain while Maintaining Performance

Specialty Taping in Thousand Oaks, CA: Athletic taping can prevent injury and facilitate an injured athlete’s return to competition.  Tape should limit the abnormal or excessive movement of an injured joint or muscle while also giving support and stability to the muscles that the injury has compromised. The enhanced feedback that tape provides to an athlete during performance can enable them to subconsciously contract the muscles that control rotary instability.

We believe that taping should work in conjunction with exercise, stretching and strengthening techniques. The three most common techniques we utilize alone or in combination with each other include: Kinesio Taping, SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping), and regular athletic taping.

The Three Most Common Taping Technique Utilized at Our Facility


Kinesio Taping is a procedure that utilizes a special tape that helps to support chiropractic adjustments while still allowing for free range of motion within the muscles.  The tape is very thin and the wave like glue pattern allows the skin to be lifted from the affected area.

Specific Proprioceptive
Response Taping (SPRT)

SPRT taping helps to determine the direction necessary for proper approximation and compression of injured tissues. Developed by Dr. Tim Brown, SPRT taping gives greater relief from the injury in movement patterns and is very supportive of injured or torn tissues while allowing for proper range of motion with activity.


Athletic tape limits the movement in an injured joint to prevent excess or abnormal movement. Additionally, athletic tape provides support to the muscles that surround the joint which may be under additional strain due to the injury of the ligament.

I have needed to see Dr. Chirs for a variety of issues that have developed during Marathon/Ironman training.
