East Tennessee Spine & Sport is your go-to provider of
Kinesiotaping Services in West Knoxville, TN.
Practitioners have experienced a consistent evolution since taping products first entered the market. They have been seen as an opportunity to enhance patient results in combination with physical therapy. This evolution is quite typical with any product, including what we now call “dynamic tape.”
Dynamic tape allows four-way stretch, which is different from the traditional two-way stretch in Kinesiotape. Four-way stretch allows the tape to function better around the multiple planes of movement a joint is capable of. It also can be applied along a muscle when helping facilitate to expand in all directions.
Dynamic tape has an improved tolerance to liquid. Athletes are able to sweat while the tape is applied without losing its function. People can also still shower or bathe with the tape on without losing it’s effect.
With different sizes and strengths available, dynamic tape can be used for a variety of purposes. It can help support a medial arch for the relief of plantar fasciitis pain, it can help maintain the position of the knee cap to reduce the pain with patellofemoral syndrome, it can support the muscle during a hamstring injury, or it can help unload the shoulder joint with symptoms of shoulder impingement.
Using dynamic tape has allowed many therapists working with athletes and weekend warriors to perform a variety of different techniques to achieve the best outcomes. And of course it looks cool! We like to call it the “Tattoo tape” without any of the pain of getting a tattoo.
I have used East Tennessee Spine and Sport for their MedX program and other matters such as post knee surgery, a shoulder injury, and other senior arthritic matters, since 2005. I am so grateful to have ETSS as a regular part of my health program.Ann Rust MedX Treatment

Spine and Sport is the ultimate place for therapy. Every single therapist is highly knowledgeable and more than caring. They brought me back from my ACL tear in five months without post-op pain. Actually, I’m stronger than I was before my injury.Eleni Georgiafandis ACL Injury
