Staten Island, NY Chiropractor, Dr. Frank J. Mandarino Works with Kinesio Tape to Alleviate Back Pain, Neck Pain & More without Surgery or Medication
Rock and Kinesio Taping in Staten Island, NY: Dr. Frank J. Mandarino has been working with kinesiology tape at his Staten Island chiropractic center to promote healing and improve sports performance. The technique used to apply the tape is designed to give joints and muscles the additional support and stability they need, all while working to facilitate healing in the affected area.
What is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio tape is a high quality elastic athletic tape that is designed to stay in place during strenuous exercise without irritating the skin. Kinesio tape works with your body as you perform daily activities or sports regiments. This is because the elasticity in the tape follows the same level of elasticity found in your skin and muscles. Using kinesio taping for posture and support will provide the necessary stability to relax the muscles and relieve pressure. As a result, the patient will no longer get the constant tightness they’ve been feeling. The tape also allows the body to work how it normally does by removing the roadblocks from the healing process. A patient’s range of motion will be restored as well.

Benefits of Kinesio Taping at Mandarino Chiropractic, P.C.
Kinesio taping has grown more popular in recent years. The benefits of kinesio taping are far superior to those of traditional taping methods of the past. These include
- Joint Correction: Proper use of kinesio tape increases the joints’ range of motion while loosening the muscles.
- Muscle Support: Kinesio tape supports the muscle’s ability to contract. This works to relieve any pain or fatigue felt in the muscle and prevents cramping.
- Allowing flow of body fluids: Kinesio tape improves blood flow and promotes lymphatic circulation. This will reduce tissue inflammation in the body.
- Self Healing: There is no medication found within kinesio tape. Rather than using drugs or medication to mask any pain, kinesio taping helps the body heal itself.
Rock Tape is the Kinesio Taping Used at Our Staten Island Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Facility
Rock Tape is Dr. Mandarino’s top choice for kinesio taping. It is heat activated, self-adhesive and water resistant. It helps address postural issues, maintain proper blood flow to targeted areas, decrease inflammation and relieve tension from irritated joints. Rock tape is the kinesiology tape preferred by medical professionals and athletes alike as it is stickier, stretchier and stronger than the competition. It is a hypoallergenic tape that has a tight weave pattern. This patterns allows muscles to snap back to their correct position, all while increasing efficiency and providing full range of motion.
