While using the traditional KinesioTaping Method could have sufficed for this clients pain levels related to his tendonitis, I found the ‘EDF’ taping to offer more immediate relief as well as less consistent discomfort for this client over the following days.
A combination of KinesioTape being used on the chest and arm to help reduce referral pain from the shoulder to the finger tips.
This inhibition application on pectoralis major was being used in conjunction with a postural corrective taping on the back.

This woman was experiencing severe low back pain over her SI joints. Once we applied KinesioTape to facilitate both here rectus abdominis and transverse abdominis her low back was significantly reduced.

This client was seeing me for post operative liposuction swelling and pain. She had a few hot spots that could not be easily touched before KinesioTape was applied. Once the KinesioTape was applied I was able to lightly massage her abdomen with no discomfort.
This application was used to help relieve her cramps. She visits once a month solely for this purpose. As for the direction, when I applied it in the opposite manner it did not relieve her discomfort but in this direction it did. The ‘Y’ tails are directly over her area of discomfort.
