What is K Tape?

KTape is an elasticized tape applied to the body for a variety of ailments including back pain, muscle tension, joint instabilities , patellofemoral disorders and shoulder impingements.

The benefits of K Taping include the following:

  • Improvement of muscle function; to either increase the ability of a muscle to contract or to help it to relax.
  • Reduce swelling around a sprained joint, haematoma or muscle tear. Also to improve lymphatic drainage following surgery,( for example following breast cancer surgery)
  • Pain reduction through stimulation of the mechanoreceptors in the skin thereby inhibiting the transmission of the pain signal to the brain.
  • Support joints through functional and mechanical corrective techniques as well as passive supports to shorten the healing process and protect the injured joint.
