What is KT Tape Original?
Pre-Cut Kinesiology Tape
KT TAPE Original, or Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape, is a revolutionary elastic sports tape designed to provide pain relief and support for muscles, joints, and tendon related aches and pains. It is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and provides targeted pain relief which has made it the go-to solution for professional athletes and Olympians as well as millions of everyday athletes. Originally invented in the 1970s by Japanese chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase, it is designed to provide pain relief and support without being restrictive and uncomfortable to wear like many of the tapes, braces, and sleeves on the market.
What does it do?
KT TAPE Original provides pain relief and support for hundreds of common* injuries including ankle sprains, runners knee, hamstring strains, carpal tunnel, wrist pain, neck strains, calf strains, shoulder pain, Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, rib pain, gluteus pain, quad strain, IT band hip, groin strain, hip flexor pain, foot pain, heel pain, bunions, turf toe, SI joint, back pain, Osgood Schlatter, peroneal tendonitis, abdominal pain, rotator cuff, finger jam, thumb pain, bicep pain and tricep pain. *Not clinically proven for all applications. It is easy to apply and can be worn for several days at a time—including in the shower or pool.
KT TAPE is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from injuries. KT TAPE creates neuromuscular feedback (called proprioception) that inhibits (relaxes) or facilitates stronger firing of muscles and tendons. This feedback creates support elements without the bulk and restriction commonly associated with wraps and heavy bracing. KT TAPE Original gives you confidence to perform your best.
Use KT TAPE for:
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder pain
- Carpal tunnel
- Tennis elbow
- Gluteus pain
- Hamstring strain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splints
- Calf strain

This is what I have found. The tape sticks well if you apply it well before you exercise (at least an hour) you press hard and rub it to create some friction and you apply it to clean skin.
It will not stick if you are sweaty or sweating or if you start sweating right after you apply the tape. This means that you should apply it after a shower or after you clean the area with soap and water and when you are in a cool dry place. Do not try and apply this outside on a hot humid day just before you start exercising. I guarantee that it will come right off.
KT TAPE will also not stick if you have any lotions, moisturizers, sunscreen etc. My experience is that it sticks great to clean skin and even clean hairy skin (sometimes too well) but any oils just kill the adhesive before it can bond with the skin.
The other thing that I have seen with clients that use the tape is that they stretch it too much especially the ends. If the ends are under tension and then you stretch or flex the muscle the tape can pop off. This is probably a good thing because a lot of rigid tapes that we used to use would cause blisters because they were with too much tension.
Another trick is to make sure the ends of the tape go down on skin rather than on tape. The tape sticks much better to skin than it does to itself. The other thing that I have noticed is that the body part that you are taping makes a big different.Read more ›
Enter KT Tape. I first tried it for my knees a few months ago -- I don't like to wear a brace, or to use McConnell taping because they affect the natural movement of the knee, when really what I need is just a tiny bit of support to keep my knee tracking properly. KT Tape is described as providing "muscle pain relief, increased mobility, and enhanced recovery," rather than "support," but I find that when I KT Tape my knees according to the directions included with the tape, my knees are less sore at the end of a workout (running, biking, hiking, etc.) and my recovery is much faster. Without KT Tape, I have to rest my knees between impact workout days to recover; when I'm using KT Tape, I can do workouts on back to back days, and even 2 a day.
I haven't tried it for other injuries, but I'm currently rehabbing a case of bicep tendinitis and am looking forward to giving it a try for that.Read more ›
I also use it when I hike the 14,000 feet mountains here in Colorado as a point of prevention to knee and foot pain. More importantly it has changed the lives if my patients from 14-83. I use it on 60% of my patients as a tool to treat and to a point diagnose.
Chronic Lateral patellar dislocation
Chondromalacia (jumpers knee)
Neck and back pain from strains to herniated disks
Acute knee injuries
Chronic knee injuries and pain
And so very much more.
I recently had a patient who had plantar fasciitis on his feet 7 years in duration. I taped him with teh PF 2 technique ([...])and by the time he stood his pain was gone from a 7/10 to 0/10 pain.
So here is how good I think KT TAPE is......
Patient comes in one week ago today. Day prior he was training, stumbles on a trail. Knees goes anteromedial then anterolateral then finally straight to ground smacking his patellar tendon and anterior tib. Pain 10/10 at occurance. Comes in next day 7/10 pain. On crutches wea...ring patellar brace. He can stand on it. He can't actively extend his left knee and flexion is 85 degrees and spikes pain. Negative McMurry etc etc etc. So I asked if he'd be willing to try it. He did and above is what I used. He could actively extend to zero. AROM to 125 roughly and could stand from sitting zero pain. He walked out zero pain with crutches in one hand, brace in the other.
He came back today to be retaped. He said it ached without the tape and his gait somewhat antalgic but no crutches and nit brace. Pain 3/10. Taped him again. Pain zero.Read more ›
