I used a star space correction over the spinous process for this hair stylist as well as a posterior cervical facilitation. I should have made the facilitation anchor longer to not end on her point of pain.
Using both the rhomboid and lower trap facilitation together can help reduce a significant amount of upper back tension. This is a relatively common KinesioTaping application that I use for desk workers.
The star space correction directly over the herniation site is quite effective for severe low back pain related to the disk injury. This application is for the sub-acute phase which is why there is also two muscle facilitation strips.
This client had tail whipped himself and sprained his lumbar fascia. The two diagonal applications are fascial corrections to support the lumbar fascia. The strip across the low back is a space correction to help remove pain and the vertical strips are erector facilitations.
I did something different for this scoliosis treatment but it had very positive results, and since then have used this application frequently. The 3 upper strips of KinesioTape are all mechanical corrections for the rib cage. Her breathing became easier and her right arm nerve pain disappeared before the end of the treatment.
This was an early treatment I had to help with this mans upper back pain due to severe medial rotation of the shoulders. Looking back on it there was likely too much KinesioTape being used, I should have limited the application to 4 strips. Less is more after all.
This was a triceps inhibition that blended into a fascial correction over a 30 year old burn scar over the scapula.
This is another form of scoliosis treatment that is quite effective. This was a long term treatment that this client was on, once every 3 weeks purely for maintenance.
This is a scoliosis treatment with bilateral inhibition of the erectors and two mechanical corrections of the ribs encouraging non-pathological movement.
This is a relatively traditional low back facilitation with a web space correction over her point of pain.
