SOME HISTORY

I have been a private practice owner since 2000. As a practicing owner I felt very compelled to have myself as well as my staff to be able to give excellent care as well as be able to stand out from other private practices.

WHY WE DEVELOPED THIS METHOD

  • Frustration with treating neurological patients for a long term treatment time (years) with very slow progress

  • No current therapy treatments were producing desired results in the neurological population

  • Need for a new, effective therapy technique that has permanent results for the neurological patient

  • Normal movement patterns needed to be restored to neurological patients

The Miracle Taping Method is the answer to the long awaited need for a neurological therapy technique that is based on real science producing real results.

Additional information on the history and development of the Miracle Taping Method by the founder, Charise Vacca P.T., D.P.T.
I began practicing physical therapy in 1989, and I started a private practice in 2000. As a private practice owner, I felt compelled to come up with many creative ways to treat my neurological patients. This encouraged me to expand my knowledge specifically in the neurological arena.  I took a course offered by Brian Mulligan P.T. that started my interest using tape to help with supporting movement in my neurologically involved patients. I took a very intensive 10 day course offered by Jenny McConnell P.T. I experimented extensively with my patients on various taping techniques. I studied and integrated in specific and theoretical physiology into the development of my first taping patent pending technique.

I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy at Chatham University in August 2011. I was elected by the selection committee of the Ohio State University Hospital and the Mount Carmel Hospitals to be a speaker at the second annual stroke symposium on October 17, 2014. I was asked to present the background information and explanation for the novel taping technique that I developed for neurological patients.

I expanded my private practice and continued with research and development of new techniques. I developed a second patent pending taping technique (Miracle Taping ™) this past year. The combinations of the two techniques have produced better long term results.

My neurological patients have been able to obtain new movement patterns for the first time since their injury after being taped. They have all maintained their new patterns for greater than one year duration. This is evidence that the results are permanent and long term. I have treated brain injuries as old as 33 years status post injury. This supports my theory that neurogenesis can occur at any age and at any time after a brain injury.
