Kinesiology tape, Kinesio tape, or KT is a thin, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive originally designed for athletes to help prevent sports injuries. KT is designed to mimic the human skin in elasticity and thickness so that you can use your full range of motion. Kinesiology tape is used primarily for the prevention and treatment of sporting injuries. It is also used to treat pain and disability from various other physical disorders. This therapeutic tape has gained popularity among sportspeople. KT was developed in the late 1970s by a Japanese chiropractor named Dr. Kenzo Kase. He originally developed it to help alleviate pain and promote soft tissue healing.

The tape's medical-grade adhesive is water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for three to five days, even if you sweat heavily or take showers. The tape can stretch up to 140% of its original length. Following application, it recoils back to the normal length creating a pulling force on the skin. This elastic property allows a better range of motion compared to any other tape.


Kinesiology tape is used to support and relieve pain in muscles, ligaments, and joints. It helps reduce swelling, increases mobility, and enhances recovery. KT Tape can be self-applied, or the doctor can apply it for you. If you are new to KT tape for ankle sprain, have a medical professional demonstrate the correct way to apply it before doing it yourself.

How does Kinesiology Tape work?


Many people, especially athletes, experience musculoskeletal injuries due to the overuse of a specific tissue or muscle. Blood and other fluids build up in the injured area, causing swelling and pain. Due to swelling, lymphatic vessels become compressed, which prevents oxygen and nutrients from being delivered to healing tissues.

When kinesiology tape is applied, the elasticity in the tape gently lifts the skin from the underlying layers of fascia, bands, or connective tissue. The gentle lifting of the skin from the fascia creates a space resulting in a greater movement of blood and lymphatic fluid, which ultimately helps to alleviate pressure and reduce swelling.


Once normal blood flow is restored, oxygen and other nutrients are able to reach damaged tissues to aid in healing. The tape helps to improve circulation, support muscles, prevents over-stretching or over-contraction of muscle, and help prevent further muscle injury while allowing full range of motion.
