Sports kinesio tapes will help prevent injuries and prolong the youth of the body


Everyone would like a young toned body for years to come? The answer is obvious. This result can be achieved by using kinesiotape during sports! Now we will take a closer look at body taping as a method of sports therapy.

Kinesio taping makes the skin and muscles toned. Thanks to this method, you can preserve the youthfulness of the skin, joints and muscles for a long time. Kinesio taping has few contraindications and can be used at any age, regardless of the initial data.

The teip glued to the skin slightly lifts the skin in the places of application and improves microcirculation. Tissues with post-traumatic edema straighten. In addition, the tape provides soft support and corrects the biomechanics of movements of the injured part of the body.

Unlike ordinary bandages and elastic bandages, teips do not restrict the movement of blood and lymph, practically do not limit the mobility of the joints (limbs) and do not provoke edema. Tapes can be worn for 3-4 days and showered with them.

Tapes are an effective treatment without medication.

Taping can alleviate the condition of the damaged area as early as 20 minutes after applying the tape. Kinesio tapes act on muscles and joints at rest and in motion, remaining invisible under clothing. Well, even if someone notices, it’s not scary — teips are usually colored and beautiful.


Helps relieve tension and pain by normalizing the function and tone of muscle tissue. It is used for rheumatic diseases, pathologies of the musculoskeletal system (scoliosis, osteochondrosis, kyphosis), for muscle strains, for the prevention of sports injuries. Tapes are glued to the skin in accordance with the anatomical location of the muscles, this position unloads them and provides support. This kinesio taping technique is used for the calf, elbow, shoulder, neck, rectus and oblique abdominal muscles, dorsal and other muscles. In pediatric practice, muscle technique is often used in neurospeech therapy to improve the functioning of the muscles of the speech apparatus.


Improves blood and lymph flow in injured areas, swollen areas. The tape is applied in such a way that the skin is slightly lifted. Reduced pressure is created in the treated area, lymph transportation to large vessels improves, decay products are removed from the body faster. As a result, swelling, a feeling of heaviness and fatigue, pain syndrome decrease, and the range of motion improves. The tapes are fan-shaped placed on the skin along the course of the lymphatic vessels, the uncut end of the tape should be slightly above the lymph node, towards which the drainage is performed. The technique is used in cosmetology, including for manipulations on the face, to get rid of excess weight and cellulite, in the recovery period after bruises, sprains and other injuries.


Taping in this technique eliminates disturbances in the work of fascia — connective tissue membranes that surround organs, blood vessels, muscles, and other soft tissues of the body and connect them together. The fascia contains a large number of nerve endings and contractile elements. When stressed, they are activated, this causes tension in the fascia, a feeling of tightness. Sticking tapes helps to relax the fasciae, relieve them of tension and a feeling of muscle tightness. Kinesio tapes are glued with the fascial method for spinal hernias and other diseases of the musculoskeletal system, for radiculitis — on the lumbar region, posture disorders, help the body recover from injuries and surgical interventions.


It is used to fix damaged joints in the anatomically correct position. Tapes are applied with maximum tension to ensure immobilization. As a result of applying tapes, the range of motion in the joint is reduced, the load on the injured area is reduced. This has an analgesic effect, speeds up recovery, and reduces the risk of complications. This kinesio taping technique is used for sprains of the ankle joint, dislocations, and other injuries that require stabilization of the ligamentous apparatus. Often kinesio tapes are glued to the knees by athletes involved in football, jumping, running sports, as taping helps prevent sprains, habitual dislocations and other injuries.

Indications for use

  • Bruises, dislocations.
  • Sprains and tears of ligaments.
  • Inflammation of muscles, joints and tendons.
  • Injuries, diseases or disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
  • Hematomas and edema.
  • Osteochondrosis and arthrosis.
  • Muscle and joint pain.


  • Thrombosis (there is a risk of a blood clot).
  • Increased body temperature.
  • With caution in diabetes mellitus (the need for insulin may increase, especially if the tape is applied to the injection sites).
  • Oncological diseases and tumor neoplasms.
  • Severe edema associated with heart and kidney disease (general circulation cannot be restored).
  • Open wounds and damaged areas of the skin, the presence of trophic ulcers in the taping area.
  • The occurrence of an allergic skin reaction to the tape (itching is not always an allergy, therefore taping of sensitive areas using pads is possible), systemic skin diseases.
  • First trimester of pregnancy (avoid applications in the pelvis and abdomen).
  • Poorly or incompletely diagnosed disease (in order to avoid deterioration of the condition).
  • Old age combined with weak thin skin.
  • Excess hair on the body (the tape is applied to clean, fat-free, dry skin).
