Hip and thigh injuries are challenging to treat. Anatomically they are difficult to provide support to, and physically they are difficult to rest, as they are always working. Kinesiology tape, however, can be easily applied to the hip, IT band, hamstring, quadriceps or groin, and provide 24/7 therapeutic support for days at a time. Kinesiology tape does not need to be wrapped completely around an injured area, but instead is applied directly over or around the borders of injured muscles and joints. This allows it to conform to the contours of any part of the body without binding, chaffing or limiting movement.
This items below are precut kinesiology taping products specifically designed to treat injuries and degenerative conditions of the hip and muscles of the thigh. Although effective applications can be created from any type of kinesiology tape, many people prefer the simplicity and convenience of precut applications designed for specific parts of the body.
