Kinesiology Tape for Middle Neck Pain

Learn about middle neck pain. Neck pain can be caused by a number of factors, including muscle strain, ligament sprains, arthritis, or a "pinched" nerve. Neck pain most successfully treated by KT Taping techniques include Cervical Strain, and Cervical Myofascial pain.

Cervical strain Cervical muscle strain can occur when there is an injury to the muscles of the neck, causing spasm of the cervical and upper back muscles. Cervical strain may result from the physical stresses of everyday life, including poor posture, muscle tension from psychologic stress or poor sleeping habits. Typically, symptoms include pain, stiffness, and tightness in the upper back or shoulder, which may last for up to six weeks.

Cervical Myofascial Pain Myofascial pain causes tight and tender areas of muscle that are sensitive to pressure. Myofascial pain in the neck can develop after trauma or with other medical conditions, such as psychologic stress, depression, or insomnia.

KT Tape alleviates pain by providing support and increased circulation around the affected area allowing for a rapid recovery. Generally individuals will feel immediate support and pain relief upon taping.
