Kinesiology tape (also called K Tape) is designed to promote healing from repetitive stress injuries. This includes injuries from sporting, work or recreational activities. It works by gently lifting the skin over the injured area as the patient performs his or her regular daily movements. By facilitating the flow of blood and/or lymphatic fluids through the area, k tape accelerates healing and reduces the pain of the injury. You can find more information on this type of taping therapy in our blog post on how k taping works.
As you browse the selection of k tape products below, you will notice that it includes two types of tape. There are regular tape rolls as well as pre cut tape segments designed for specific areas of the body. In general, you can use the regular k tape rolls on any area of the body on which you have experienced an injury. However, they will require somewhat more skill and knowledge for successful application. On the other hand, you can use pre cuts only on specific body parts. However, you will find them easier to apply than the standard rolls.
When applying k tape, be careful ensure that the area to which you intend to apply it is clean and dry. You should also avoid using any lotions, creams or oils on the area before application. Additionally, if body hair is present on the area, it is best to shave it before application.
