10 Ways to Use Kinesiology Tape X-Strips

X-strips are the quick-relief strips of the kinesiology taping world. They begin as strips of tape with lengthwise cuts extending from each end toward a solid center section. When the 'tails' on each end are separated and applied to the skin, the taping resembles an X. For fast pain relief, simply stretch the center part of the tape and apply it directly over any painful spot, then spread the tails and apply them over the surrounding area in an X-pattern. Kinesiology tape x-strips are one of the best types of tape to have in a first aid kit, as they can be applied to any painful area on any part of the body. Although they can be cut from any type of kinesiology tape, we recommend using precut x-strips because of their convenience and durability. With smooth, machine-cut edges, precut strips fray less, maintaining their appearance and effectiveness longer. Our preferred brand is Nasara QuickStrips Precut X-Strips, available in a variety of sizes, colors and quantities.  Simply select a size to cover the entire affected area. Our infographic below demonstrates 10 common x-strip applications. 10 Uses for Kinesiology Tape X-Strips
