Shin & Calf Pain
When it comes to sports injuries, there are two types of Kinesio Tape. Recognising the need for a more advanced and specialised tape in a medical setting, Dr Kase created Kinesio Tex Gold FP, which stands for the micro-targeted fingerprint pattern of the adhesive in the advanced tape product. This is particularly effective when used for circulatory, lymphatic, or neurological treatments.
However, for the practitioner and everyday user, Kinesio Tex Classic tape is still the product of choice for muscle and joint taping techniques.
“I have been a client of Michael Franklin's practice for about 4 years now. He came highly recommended by a chiropractor friend of mine when I had injured my knees 5 years ago. My feet then were giving me all sorts of problems - bunions, calluses, corns, hammertoes, etc. Due to my long-distance running and badminton. I had to switch to golf 5 years ago, but that didn't help my feet as I had to wear awkward golf shoes with spikes etc. On the soles! I went to see Michael in 2014 in his Cardiff practice to treat my painful corns and calluses on both feet, which were broad at the front and narrow/slim at the neck of the feet. The transformation to my feet after that one visit couldn't have been more spectacular. He not only treated my feet ailments, but also advised on the type of shoes and insoles for me, and even the method of lacing up shoes. Wonderfully patient, caring and informative, Michael is a true professional in his field.”
