K Tape Benefits
Supports Injured Muscles, Tendons and Ligaments
K-tape provides a light consistent compression thanks to it’s reliable stickiness, to the soft tissues around your joints. This consistent compression helps to provide a light level of support to your muscles, without limiting your joint range of motion.
It can be Worn While Competing with Minor Injuries
One of the best things about Kinesiology Tape is that if you’re a professional or even recreational athlete, is that it can be worn while competing with minor injuries. This must however be under the guidance of a healthcare professional. It doesn’t restrict your range of motion, meaning you can still compete at your best.
