    Top 10 Taping Protocols

    A search of YouTube.com for “kinesiology tape knee” produces 54,000 results, "kinesiology tape shoulder" 46,000 results and "kinesiology tape ankle" 36,000 results.

    Clearly, there is no shortage of examples for the viewer but in reviewing thousands of these demonstrations, there were few that we found to be concise, accurate and easy to understand.

    With that in mind, we have created our top Ten kinesiology taping protocols.

    For each selected body part you will find:

    1. ​A pictorial sequence of the most successful taping protocol for a major area of potential injury/complaint. If you understand application basics, then these stepwise photos will offer a great starting point.
    2. A good video example for kinesiology tape
    3. A good video example for biomechanical taping. Most of the videos are from the developer of this brand and being a clinician, he goes into great detail using medical terminology. Don’t be thrown by this if you are a non-medical viewer. His protocols are very good…just watch where he puts the tape.

    Maybe you are wondering, "what is the best type of tape for my needs?" No worries we have created the chart below to help you choose.
