Kase created Kinesio tape with a proprietary blend of cotton and nylon. It’s designed to mimic the skin’s elasticity so you can use your full range of motion. The tape’s medical-grade adhesive is also water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for three to five days, even while you work out or take showers. When the tape is applied to your body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin. It is believed that this helps to create a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath it. One small study with 32 participants showed that when kinesiology tape was applied over the knee, it increased the space in the knee joint.Trusted Source A similar study showed kinesiology tape also increased the space in the shoulder joint.Trusted Source Even though the increase in space is slight, it helps reduce the chance of joint irritation.
The American Physical Therapy Association reports that kinesiology taping is most effective when it’s used in conjunction with other treatments like manual therapy.
Kinesiology tape is also used to add extra support to muscles or joints that need it. If you have patellofemoral stress syndrome, IT band friction syndrome, or Achilles tendonitis, kinesiology taping might help you.
Kinesiology tape can help re-train muscles that have lost function or that have gotten used to an unhealthy way of working.
Some athletes use kinesiology taping to help them achieve peak performance and protect against injury when they’re competing in special events.
