Four Keys to Health

The primary reason that natural healing or holistic healing methods work is because they raise a person’s resistance to disease. Thus, they are essentially the only viable recourse for preventative health care.

The major keys to health are (1) Alignment, (2) Diet, (3) Exercise and (4) Positive Mental State.

Chiropractic is essential because through the normal alignment of the spine nerve irritation is relieved and, with normal nerve transmission throughout the body, body resistance is increased.

Diet is crucial because simply “we are what we eat”. If we abuse our bodies with poor quality foods, achieving health would be difficult.

Exercise has been highly recommended for increasing strength and endurance.

The Positive Mental Attitude is important to tie all the health factors together. Without a good mental attitude (healthy, vibrant) true health is difficult to achieve.

It would be wise to check with your Chiropractor to determine a program combining exercise, diet, and Chiropractic together with a positive mental attitude.

Kinesio Tape

The Tape Technology

Kinesio Tape is an advanced taping technology which supports overused muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia in an active and dynamic way allowing for motion.  The tape actually increases and enhances muscle activity and improves function and performance.  The dynamic method of taping allows for prevention of further injury and protects the tissue for healing, while allowing for muscle activity.

Kinesio Tape Long Wear Mechanical Support

The tape is made of a cotton-type of fabric with an acrylic adhesive base that is activated by friction post-application.  Kinesio tape can potentially be worn for several days, due to the unique fabric that allows the tissue below to breathe.  It provides mechanical support of the structure while also promoting optimal athletic performance.

Dr. Tara Koff is proficient in various taping procedures to support injured muscles and joints.  Kinesio taping is one of many taping procedures she employs.
