LeukoTape P is a high strength, rigid strapping athletic tape with a strong zinc oxide adhesive. It is porous and hand tearable yet offers extra strength and support for strains and sprains. This tape is particularly ideal for patellofemoral taping and posture correction.
Therapists and athletes apply athletic tape directly to the skin in order to maintain a stable relative position of bones and muscles during athletic activity. Maintaining muscles and/or bones in their correct relative positions reduces pain and aids recovery.
Therapists normally use athletic tape to treat overuse or repetitive stress injuries. However, they may also find it useful for the proactive avoidance of sports related injuries.
