Frequently Asked Questions about KT Tape
What is the difference between Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape (KT Tape) and Kinesio Tex and other brands of tape on the market?
KT Brand Kinesiology Tape comes in pre-cut Kwik Cuts with curved corners for easy use that will last longer on your skin.
Is the Kinesiology Tape difficult to remove?
The Kinesiology Tape will last for 3-5 days. But it is quite easily removed. Simply
peel it slowly off your skin. Do not lift or pull the tape. Simply peel it off
slowly while holding down the skin underneath. When applying the tape, if you don't get it quite right, you can peel the tape off slowly and re-apply.
Can I cut the Kinesiology Tape for special applications?
Certainly. In fact, KT Kinesiology Tape comes pre-cut to be used as either "I"-shaped strip or a "Y"-shaped strip. If you need to cut the Kinesio Tape for another application, just cut it with scissors while the backing is still on.
How does Kinesiology Tape work?
Muscles constantly extend and contract within a normal range; however, when muscles over-extend and over contract, such as when lifting an excessive amount of weight, muscles cannot recover and become inflamed. When a muscle is inflamed, swollen or stiff due to fatigue, the space between the skin and muscle is compressed, resulting in constriction to the flow of lymphatic fluid. This compression also applies pressure to the pain receptors beneath the skin, which in turn communicates, "discomfort signals" to the brain & emdash; the person experiences PAIN. This type of pain is known as myalgia, or muscular pain. That's where Kinesiology Tape comes to the rescue! Kinesiology Taping alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. The taped portion forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space. The result is that pressure and irritation are taken off the neural and sensory receptors, alleviating pain. Pressure is gradually taken off the lymphatic system, allowing it to channel more freely.
Is Kinesiology Tape the same as Athletic Tape?
It may look like conventional athletic tape, but tape and Kinesiology Taping is
fundamentally different. Kinesiology Taping is based on a different philosophy that aims to give free range of motion in order to allow the body's muscular system to heal itself bio-mechanically.
Does Kinesiology Tape have latex?
Kinesiology Tape does not contain latex and can be used safely by those with a latex allergy.
Will I feel the Kinesiology Tape once it is applied?
When applied correctly most people do not even know the tape is in place as it is very light and comfortable. The tape remains effective for 3-5 days before it needs to be replaced. It tolerates showering, and even swimming. The tape does absorb water; however, it dries quickly in about 20 minutes.
Are there areas that I should NOT apply Kinesiology Tape?
You should not apply Kinesiology Tape over an open wound, early healing skin or fragile skin. If you have being treated for cancer, blood clots, or infection, you should consult your physician before applying Kinesiology Tape.
