Since 1986 Specialict in General medicine. Working in Bad Oldesloe in an indipendent Rural Medicine Practice.
In July 2001 I suffered from terrible back pain. After an ineffective self treatment, not even an orthopaedic specialist could help me. My back pain totally disappeared within seconds, when a physiotherapist used an elastic tape for treatment. I only felt slight pain when doing circular movements. I didn´t understand this quick effect, but I was so fascinated that I wanted to find out more about this great effect.
Elastic therapeutic tape, is an elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders. As a result, if the tape is applied to a patient on a stretch greater than its normal length, it will "recoil" after being applied and therefore create a pulling force on the skin or muscle that it is being applied to. This elastic property allows much greater range of motion compared to traditional white athletic tape and can also be left on for long periods of time before reapplication. There is little scientific evidence that elastic therapeutic taping produces clinically significant benefits.
