A Breakthrough in Pain & Inflammation Control
Here at Secrest Family Chiropractic we have recently completed a series of studies on controlling pain and inflammation using CATT, or Controlled Action Taping Technique. CATT is more commonly referred to as kinesio taping, which is the brand name of the tape. Our studies indicated that kinesio taping was an effective way to control the pain and inflammation while returning strength to injured muscle tissue. If you suffered an injury, we invite you to learn about kinesio taping and how it may be able to help you.
(Offered FREE with your Chiropractic adjustment)
You may have noticed kinesio tape in use at the Olympics, where athletes wore colored tape on their skin. While you wondered at the tape, what you did not know was that this was a tape designed to support soft tissue injury healing. Unlike traditional approaches to soft tissue rehabilitation, which restricted the tissue movement and thus the range of motion of athletes, kinesio taping supports a full range of motion.
The tape is 100 percent cotton and fully breathable, compared with traditional latex tape. This is good news for individuals who have latex allergies.
One hour after application, the tape can be immersed in water. It can then be worn for as long as 72 hours, holding the soft tissue in place and allowing you to heal while reducing pain. The tape can also be used to promote lymphatic draining, which reduces inflammation and increases healing blood flow in the area.
Kinesiology tape is often used to treat injuries including:
If you are interested in seeing whether kinesio tape can help you control muscle pain or inflammation, give us a call. We can perform an examination to see whether you qualify for this treatment.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Secrest, DC in South Scottsdale uses this complementary technique after performing a chiropractic adjustment. We have found that the tape helps to hold the chiropractic adjustment longer, which allows a deeper healing to occur. The tape also retrains the tissue to its proper position, so you can heal from your injury faster. We offer free kinesio taping after our Metro-Scottsdale-Phoenix chiropractic adjustments to better support your healing.
Our recent studies revealed that kinesio taping was highly effective for reducing inflammation, controlling pain, and retraining muscles and ligaments to their proper positioning. Our patients gave positive reports on the fast action of the treatment for reducing their levels of pain and inflammation. Some were finally able to sleep again!

Dr Secrest really cares about his patients. He resolved a 3 year headaches issue for one of my sons that all the other doctors couldn't and he's been fantastic working with my son with autism.
