Kinesiology tape – support in sport and everyday life

Kinesiology tape – support in sport and everyday life


Kinesiology tape has become particularly popular among both professional athletes and amateurs. It is virtually invisible, yet provides invaluable support, offering a wide range of options for both injury prevention and treatment.


Prevention of injuries. Kinesiology tape can be used to reduce the risk of injury to muscles and joints exposed to excessive strain, thus stabilising them.

Pain relief and promotion of recovery. When used correctly, kinesiology tape helps relieve pain related to muscle and joint injuries and promotes faster recovery by stimulating blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Encouraging correct movements. The tape can be used to rectify incorrect movement patterns, for example by providing additional support to a muscle, thus stimulating its correct position during certain physical activities.

How does it work?

The kinesiology tape is applied directly to the surface of the skin, usually over the muscles or joints – thus gently stretching the muscles, joints or ligaments you need. The intensity, direction and position of the tension are adjusted depending on the purpose of the application. During movement, the flexibility of the tape allows it to stretch and contract but does not restrict freedom of movement.

Correct use is important

It is important to understand that kinesiology tape is not a universal solution for each and every situation. Proper tightening requires certain knowledge and experience. It is best to consult a physiotherapist, doctor or sports medicine specialist who will not only help you choose the best solution but also help you apply the tape. You can also apply the tape on your own but you should consult a specialist before using it.

Duration of use

The total duration of use of the kinesiology tape for it to have an effect will be determined by a specialist. The need for its application must be assessed on an individual basis.

Freshly applied tape will last from a few hours to a few days, depending on the target and the body’s response. It is important to regularly check the condition of the tape and take action if irritation or skin reactions occur.

Brief highlights

Kinesiology tape can be a useful aid in sport and everyday life for the purposes of injury prevention, pain relief, recovery and movement optimisation. However, its correct application requires certain knowledge and practice. Before you start using it, you should consult a specialist to ensure that it is suitable for your individual needs and goals.
