Uses Of K-Tape

  • For Rehab – Many times athletes experience that after a competitive event their body is exhausted or broken, or it may be that a non-competitive athlete has overtrained, but in either case rehab is needed. Manual manipulation is important to rehabilitation. Using K-tape after a manual manipulation session can increase efficacy of your treatment more so than without K-tape.

  • For Alignment – If you have a tendency to slouch or have an area of the body that is not properly aligned K-tape can bring the body back into alignment.

  • For Pain – Most athletes tend to have lower back pain. After manual manipulation, K-tape can be placed on the affected area (using a different method or style of taping depending on the area) to decrease pain and discomfort.

  • For Competition – Most athletes tend to know if they have rolling ankles or patella tracking issues. K-tape can be put on the affected area to prevent injuries if the athlete plans to do an event.
