What Is KT Tape?

Monday, 1 September 2014  |  Paul

KT Tape has become incredibly popular within the last few years, however there seems to be a little confusion as to how KT works. So, here is all of the information you need for using KT Taping to support your muscles and joints.

What is KT Tape?

KT Tape, or KT Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape to give it its full title, is vibrantly coloured tape cut into strips for use in aiding recovery, providing support, and improving performance during exercise.

How does KT Tape work?

It’s a fact that the key to recovering from injuries and exertion or even improving the performance of our muscles is to ensure a supply of blood and other body fluids to power the muscles; KT Taping is designed to lift the skin and other tissues up and away from the muscles during use which allow blood and other fluids to rush in and feed the muscles, increasing both performance and recovery.

What is KT Tape for?

KT Tape can be used for all common muscle and joint complaints, including Achilles heel problems. The KT Tape is simply applied to the muscle or joint in question according to the instructions included and you’re ready to go!

How do you Apply KT Tape?

There are a range of videos explaining the correct methods for applying KT Taping to various parts of the body on our KT Tape product page at:

Commonly viewed videos demonstrate the KT Taping being applied for ankle sprains, knee support, and even plantar fasciitis.
