The Practice of Acutaping for chronic pain and injuries.
Wtitten by Hans-Ulrich Kecker and Kay Liebchen
A full explanation of the use and practice of acutaping.
This is a relatively new treatment method particularly, but not exclusively,
for the treatment of pain. It is a development of Kinesio-taping and was
described by two German doctors, Hans-Ulrich Hecker and Kay Liebchen. The method has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, but also in osteopathy. Acu-taping differs from Kinseo-taping in that any "western" symptom can be translated into a Chinese clinical picture and then managed with this therapy. Thus more complaints can be treated using Acu-taping, including internal problems such as bowel disorders, menstrual problems, and many others.
Before the introduction of Kinesio-taping, bandaging had simply been used to support damaged joints and muscles while they were able to heal naturally. However in the 1970s A Japanese physician, Kenzo Kase developed a new kind of tape that was stretchable. Using such tapes, therefore, it is exercise of the structures that results in the therapeutic effect rather than immobilisation. The skin adheres to the tape in such a way that it then moves against the subcutaneous tissues leading to exercise. It helps lymph to be drained and also massages the connective tissue. The accelerated lymph drainage appears to have an anti-inflammatory action. Blood flow is also stimulated. Clearly damaged structures cannot be repaired by this therapy however the dysfunction, which often accompanies such damage, can be positively influenced.
The expected effects of Acu-taping can be summarized as follows: Pain
reduction. Reduction in muscle spasm, improved tone of weak muscles,
anti-inflammatory actions, improved immune state, decongestion and improved blood circulation.
Acu-taping is especially useful in the realm of sports medicine.
The tapes are either 5 cm or 2.5 cm wide and 5 meters long. They are made of specially designed stretchable fabric with an acrylic adhesive. The tapes do not contain any other chemicals or medications. They are presented in 5 colours beige, black, pink, yellow and blue. The different colours are purely for personal preference, and are not intended to have different functions.
