Details
KT Tape Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape is a revolutionary athletic tape that burst onto the scene during the 2008 Summer Olympics in China when gold medallist Kerri Walsh debuted KT tape during the Beach Volleyball competition. Viewers were left wondering, “What is that tape that Kerri Walsh has on her shoulder?” Some thought perhaps it was some kind of tattoo. Inevitably, viewers wondered where they could get their own special Kerri Walsh Olympic Tape.

Although many athletes wore KT Tape during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Walsh’s tape was the most visible. Other athletes using KT Tape include Lance Armstrong, Serena Williams, David Beckam, Robby Ginepri and Justine Henin.

    Comments about KT Tape Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape:

    This tape works great when applied correctly. Throughout my volleyball season last year my shoulder had been getting progressively worse. After adding the KT Tape to my regiment, I was able to heal to the point where I no longer require taking ibuprofen and topical painkillers. The one downside is that it is difficult to stay on if you sweat a lot (and I mean a lot), otherwise if you apply it right, it works right.

      Great tape, but sometimes it's a little uncomfortable. Still it provides great support, so it is worth to use it.

        Comments about KT Tape Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape:

        I bought the product to help treat Plantars Faciitus. The first application worked great providing more relief than I expected and I was able to wear it for 5 days. (I guess the adhesive is impervious to water) The downside for me was revealed in the form of an allergic reaction on the second day of my second application. The blister like rash was uncomfortable enough for me to discontinue use and deal with the pain of the plantars faciitus. However I would and do recommend this product knowing that my sensitivity to the adhesive is uncommon.

        Comments about KT Tape Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape:

        Let me just sum up by saying:
        Training for half marathon, was starting to get shin splints and had lots of shin/lower leg pains. Started applying tape before runs and leaving on between runs. Shin pain is gone. This product is A MAZing!

        Only issue: edges will come off in the shower. I might be doing something wrong in the application, though.
