APPLIED FUNCTIONAL SCIENCE
Applied functional science is the new wave to physical therapy. It is not just one muscle or one joint that allows to move. So, since the body works as one unit it, is important to understand the sequencing the body goes through to accomplish a task. Looking at the whole body as a structure working sequentially to efficiently move is the concept behind applied functional science.
Kinesio taping is a special rehabilitative method that we use here at Affiliated Foot and Ankle Center. You may have seen it on the athletes at the Beijing Olympics but anybody can use it. It is so unique that you have to be certified in order to properly apply it. We use it here to help reduce heel pain, decrease inflammation and improve ankle stability. It overall gives you a better outcome and a speedier recovery.
