Developed in the 1970s by Dr. Kenzo Kase, a Japanese chiropractor, kinesiology tapes are designed to deliver muscle support without limiting movement. Sported by professional athletes on their back, knees, shoulders, and abs, these tapes come in all sorts of vivid, bright, and eye-catching colors. They’re widely popular among physical therapists and even regular folks to help alleviate muscle pain and discomfort while boosting muscle support, even aiding recovery.
Kinesiology tapes are made from a combination of cotton, spandex, and adhesive. Designed to mimic the elasticity of the skin, they are also stretchier than the usual athletic tapes.
Water-resistant, kinesiology tapes stay on the skin even when you are sweating. You can even leave them on when showering!
Kinesiology tapes work by lifting the skin from the muscle below. In turn, the tape reduces swelling and promotes blood flow to the muscle to increase its function.
Grayson Wickham, a Physical Therapist, explains, “When [the] tape is applied, it causes compression or decompression of these areas, supposedly allowing it to alter pain signals to the brain.”
There are now hundreds, if not thousands, of kinesiology tape brands out in the market. However, it’s always good to be vigilant about choosing which adhesive to go for. Some brands are known to use cheap materials that may cause more harm than good - especially for your skin.
