KT Tape is used to relax overused muscles, facilitate underused muscles and the wave pattern found on the tape's adhesive has a lifting effect on the skin which can reduce swelling and inflammation by improving circulation and reduce pain by taking pressure off pain receptors. The elastic properties can also be used to limit or encourage specific motion at a joint. We now stock one of the widest ranges of Kinesiology Tape, including Kinesio Tape, Patterned RockTape, Mueller Kinesiology Tape, and Spidertech Kinesiology Tape.
Kinesiology tape acts to create a void between your muscle and dermis layers, removing pressure from injured muscles and swelling. This facilitates muscle and joint movement whilst allowing for the blood to flow and drain from the site of the injury. KT Tape is flexible, this allows athletes to wear the tape during sports in a bid to minimise pain. Kinesiology tape is seen by some as an alternative to cohesive bandage and other sports tapes and strapping.
Kinesiology tape has been proven to immediately and effectively relieve symptoms of pain in clinical settings whilst preventing incorrect movement in injured limbs. KT Tape has been demonstrated to positively impact injuries in the following areas in particular: knees, lower back pain and plantar fasciopathy.
