When you're ready to stop having pain and injury slow you down, preventing you from reaching your potential, put down the excuses and pick up the KT Tape. No matter if it's training to get through your first marathon or just trying to get through the day, KT Tape provides the pain relief and support needed so you don't slow down. KT Tape is lightweight, comfortable to wear and can be used for many common injuries from neck and shoulder strains and pains all the way down to shin splints, Achilles tendonitis and nearly every injury that can affect muscles, joints and tendons in-between. KT Tape Classic is a cotton and elastic sports tape that relieves pain while supporting muscles, tendons and ligaments. When applied correctly, KT Tape reduces pressure to tissue which reduces discomfort and pain. It lifts the skin, decompressing the layers of fascia, allowing for greater movement of lymphatic fluid and helping to remove waste products, cellular debris and bacteria. That's why KT Tape is used by and relied upon by professional athletes, athletic trainers and medical professionals. KT Tape is also used heavily in the Olympics by Team USA. Sized at 2" x 16', this roll of KT Tape is designed to be cut into strips for customized care and a personalized fit. Making the Classic even more athlete friendly is that the acrylic based medical grade adhesive is gentle on skin, unlike traditional athletic tape. In addition to pain relief, taping provides support to muscles by helping them to not over-extend or over-contract. KT Tape has more than 60 instructional videos available online teaching how to correctly apply the tape to support various body parts and to help with various injuries. The elastic core delivers strong support for muscles, joints and tendons without restricting comfort and range of motion. This means it will provide stronger support, for as long as you need it, remaining comfortable for up to 3 days. So durable, KT Tape will stay on in water be it the shower, the pool or the ocean. For best results, apply KT Tape one hour before activity and after you've first cleaned the skin of dirt and oils. Don't overstretch the tape and make sure the ends are on skin, not on tape. Set of 8 rolls.
