Kinesiology Tape Vs Conventional Strapping Tape:

  • Kinesiology tape differs from other types of strapping tape in both its form and function. Most types of strapping tape are non-elastic and are wrapped tightly around an injured joint or muscle to offer rigid support and restrict movement. They can only be worn for short periods of time, after which they must be removed to restore movement and circulation.
  • It has unique elastic properties that allow the kinesiology tape to provide dynamic support. This provides an almost second skin that protects your joints and muscles. Plus, due to its amazing elastic properties, kinesiology tape allows full motion of your body parts.
  • Kinesiology tape can be worn during intense exercise, in the shower or even swimming.

Kinesiology tape has a comprehensive array of therapeutic benefits. Because it can be left on for up to a week, these therapeutic benefits are available to the injured area 24 hours a day, significantly speeding up the healing process from trauma, injuries and inflammatory conditions.
