What Is KT Tape?

KT Tape is an elastic sports tape designed to relieve pain while supporting muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

How It Works

When an area of the body is injured through impact or over-use, the lymphatic fluid builds up causing inflammation and swelling. This accumulation of lymphatic fluids may cause increased pressure on muscles and tissue which can cause significant discomfort or pain.

It is believed that when applied correctly, KT Tape lifts the skin, decompressing the layers of fascia, allowing for greater movement of lymphatic fluid which transports white blood cells throughout the body and removes waste products, cellular debris, and bacteria.

Why Use It

KT Tape helps reduce pressure to the tissue and may reduce discomfort or pain. Correct taping also provides support to muscles by improving the muscle’s ability to contract, even when it is weak, and helps the muscle to not over-extend or over-contract.

Who Should Use It

Whether you are training for your first marathon, getting ready for your first game, reaching a personal fitness goal, or just trying to get through the day, nothing slows you down more than pain and injury. KT Tape is light weight, comfortable to wear, and can be used for many common injuries such as lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sprained ankles, and tennis elbow—just to name a few. KT Tape provides pain relief and support so you don’t have to slow down.
