StrengthTape FAQ's

IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE COLORS? Therapeutically, there is NO difference between the colors. Match your outfit, wear your team colors, mix and match- be subtle or be bold … regardless of the color, you will receive superior stickability and the benefits of StrengthTape’s negative ion technology. HOW LONG DOES STRENGTHTAPE STAY ON? When properly applied, most StrengthTape applications will stay on 5-7 days. Average wear time varies somewhat, depending on where the tape is applied and the amount of contact it is subjected to. Expect shorter wear times from applications on areas such as the foot or hand which perspire a lot or areas that experience significant rubbing from equipment or bodily contact. On more protected areas like the shoulder or back, the tape will stay on much longer. CAN I APPLY STRENGTHAPE BY MYSELF? You sure can--as long as you can reach the area that needs to be taped. The basic principles of taping are very simple, and it generally only takes a couple of tries to get comfortable taping yourself. Most applications to the arms, legs and feet can be easily applied with no assistance. Unless you're a contortionist, however, you'll probably need someone to help apply tape to your neck, back or shoulder. CAN I HURT MYSELF IF I APPLY THE TAPE INCORRECTLY? Kinesiology taping is one of the safest forms of self-applied treatment, even for those with no experience. Poorly applied tape may not lead to the hoped-for benefits, but it would be pretty difficult to injure yourself with it. And, since every roll comes with a simple instruction sheet, the odds of not applying it properly are pretty slim! SHOULD I APPLY KT TAPE BEFORE MY RACE OR EXERCISE? Before exercise, during exercise, after exercise ... it's all good. Each application can be worn up to 7 days, so why not maximize your benefits? DO I NEED TO SHAVE BEFORE APPLYING THE TAPE? In most cases it's not necessary to shave the skin before applying StrengthTape. In fact, some short hair can actually improve both the adhesion and the effectiveness of the product. If large amounts of hair are present, it is generally better to trim it to about 1/8″ rather than shaving it (to avoid irritating freshly shaved skin). CAN I WEAR STRENGTHTAPE UNDER COMPRESSION SOCKS? Sure can. CAN I WEAR STRENGTHTAPE UNDER A BRACE? Yup, that too. HOW DO I REMOVE THE TAPE? Press down on the skin near the end of the tape and gently roll the tape back in the same direction as the hair. If the tape is really stuck on, apply some baby oil or olive oil a few minutes before removing it. The oil will help dissolve the adhesive for easy removal. HOW DO I APPLY STRENGTHTAPE FOR INJURIES NOT LISTED IN THE INSTRUCTIONS? The following simple “rules of thumb” can help you figure out how to create a KT Tape application for virtually any injury on any part of the body. Body Position: the tissue or body should almost always be stretched before applying the tape. Tape Placement: Apply the tape either directly over or around the borders of the painful area. Amount of Stretch: Apply the tape without any additional stretch when you want to lift the skin from the tissue (muscle pain relief, prevent cramping, and prevent muscle fatigue applications). The more you stretch the tape the more it will support. If you need extra stability or support for a muscle, joint or tendon, increase the amount you stretch the tape.

Kinesio Clinical Video Series - Scar & Edema

$54.99

Recovery from wounds after injuries or surgery can be complicated by swelling and the development of scar tissue. Kinesio Taping post-wound can enhance lymphatic flow to decrease swelling, leading to pain relief and increased rehabilitation potential.

Scar tissue can significantly disrupt how our bodies function. Using Kinesio® Tex Tape is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways of treating scars. Its unique elastic qualities not only assist scars to mature, allowing the collagen to become more parallel, but it can also assist scars to release adhesions. Both new and old scars can be treated with Kinesio Tape with changes noted as early as 24 hours in mobility, adhesion and color. Scar management with Kinesio Tex Tape is gentle with quick and significant results.
