Kinesiology Tape for Rehabilitation and Sports Performance

Kinesiology TapeKinesiology tape, also commonly called physio tape or k-tape, is a thin, elastic tape that is used for a wide variety of therapeutic purposes as well as to enhance athletic performance. Its benefits include relief of pain and swelling, relaxation of overused or tight muscles, activation of weak or poorly-toned muscles, and enhancement of athletic performance. Made from cotton with a hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive, kinesiology tape is designed to be worn for 3-5 days, providing therapeutic benefits 24/7, the entire time it is worn.

Unlike traditional athletic tape that is wrapped tightly around injured body parts, kinesiology tape is applied over and around the borders of muscles and joints. This allows it to provide support for an injured area while still permitting a full, pain-free range of motion. This means that athletes can continue training and competing as they recover from injuries that might otherwise sideline them.

The best-known brand of kinesiology tape is Kinesio Tape, which was developed in the late 1970's. After being widely seen at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the popularity of Kinesio Tape exploded, which paved the way for other manufacturers  to introduce new brands of tape, including RockTape, StrengthTape, SpiderTech, KT Tape and PerformTex. Originally available in uncut rolls in 4 basic colors, kinesiology tape now comes in an extensive assortment of colors, shapes and sizes.

Those new to kinesiology taping may be confused about which type of product to start with. The Theratape Education Center contains a wealth of information on the different brands and types of tape. It also contains videos and printable instructions for a multitude of injuries and health conditions, organized by body part or brand.
