KTape – The Facts

What is it? 

An elastic therapeutic tape that is used for treatment, singling or combined with other manual therapy techniques. It helps to relieve pain, reduce swelling, provide support to muscles and joints and enhance performance.

How does it work? 

When the tape is applied correctly, it achieves the last of these effects by lifting the skin to create a small space between the muscle and dermis layers. That space takes the pressure off swelling or injured muscles, allows smooth muscle movement and makes space for drainage and blood flow.
