Kinesiology Tape




While working on Chase's crawling, our physical therapist has periodically taped the muscles in his tummy and shoulders/back with kinesiology tape. Remember the brightly colored tape decorating the Olympic volleyball players' bodies? This is the same thing. It gives the muscles support to make it easier for Chase to learn the movements he needs to master crawling and strengthen those particular muscles. Chase doesn't mind the tape - he doesn't even notice it. Hopefully it is doing its job and helping to strengthen those muscles!!

  2. I've heard alot about it, but have never used it for Landon. Do you notice a difference & does the tape come off easily??

  3. It does seem to help - when we put it on, he can then do his exercises easier, and can manage to do more. But, he's still not crawling yet so it's not an instant solution!

    If it doesn't come off easily on its own, you can just put some baby oil on the skin and it helps it to come off without irritation.

  4. Thank you for such a sweet and short post! I have never heard of this, and your kind post may help lots of others not be concerned about this if proposed for their family members. Thanks for sharing your life and Chase with us all!
