Practising physicians and physiotherapists often treat patients suffering from neck and shoulder ailments. Knots in the muscles, aches, and sprains are common - even in people with sedentary lifestyles or those who are mostly shackled to their desks. Poor posture, overexertion, and muscle sprain can all cause discomfort in the neck and the shoulder.
Some believe that leaving their shoulders and necks alone to heal by themselves is the best course of action. But, unfortunately, they couldn’t be farther from the truth.
While it’s typical for the symptoms to last a few days, medical professionals unanimously recommend treating it before turning it into a chronic issue.
Neck and shoulder pain that is mild is usually treated with short stretching exercises. But if you want to speed up the recovery process and prevent the pain from recurring, you may want to consider using SKINES Body Tape. It’s a unique form of kinesiology tape and will help your patients and your clients manage your neck and shoulder discomfort and even help them get rid of it quickly and effectively.
Initially, this tape is specially designed for busy orthopaedics and physicians in mind. It is available in convenient, pre-cut strips and can be applied effortlessly. It is placed directly on trigger points or the affected area in a stretched form and then gently rubbed to let its adhesive stick to the skin.
It works by lifting the skin dermis, enhancing blood flow in the region. As a result, it can help reduce swelling, ease pain, decrease pressure in the area, and relax muscle spasms. SKINES Body Tape can also alleviate pain from other musculoskeletal issues such as ligament sprains and nerve pinches. In addition, it boosts the body’s natural healing process and can significantly shorten the recovery period.
Consider it a kind of a brace for the shoulder and neck, if you will. It keeps the muscle tissues firmly in place but does not obstruct any muscular movements. By mimicking the movement of the body, SKINES Tape lets the affected areas heal quickly and naturally.
