From elite athletes and weekend warriors to neurological and pediatric patients, Kinesio Tex Classic provides users with high-quality, consistent results. The unique combination of thinness, elasticity and adhesive wave pattern allows Kinesio sport tape to microscopically lift the skin and create a space between the skin and the underlying tissues that relieves pressure, irritation and inflammation. Our therapeutic tape can be used as sport, athletic and medical tape as it works to reduce pressure on the lymphatic drainage system, which allows for the dispersal of fluid that can cause swelling and edema.
Kinesio Tex Classic kinesiology tape is lightweight, comfortable and supportive to aid athletes and active users with lower back, knee, elbow, shoulder and muscle pain. Our elastic therapeutic tape is hypoallergenic and latex-free, and utilizes high-grade cotton that can be worn continuously for 3-5 days for maximum effectiveness. Our heat-activated adhesive backing is made of porous material that helps moisture dissipate quickly, allowing it to withstand sweating, showering and swimming! Rather than using conventional taping to tightly wrap sore, swollen muscles and joints, use Kinesio Tex Classic to enhance circulation and relieve painful inflammation!
The Kinesio Taping Association highly recommends that you consult a CKTP (Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner) prior to applying Kinesio Tex Tape.
About Kinesio Tape
Dr. Kenzo Kase is an American-trained chiropractor, best known as the inventor of Kinesio Tex Tape and the Kinesio Taping Method. Elastic therapeutic tape has become a common modality in rehabilitation, and it started with Dr. Kase. Kinesio Tape is highly recognized in the sports arena; however, its origins were not directly related to sports. Dr. Kase recognized the need for a new approach in the 1970s when he was observing and treating rheumatoid arthritis patients.
He wanted a modality that would allow his patients to continue to receive the benefit of his treatment in-between visits, to “take his hands home with them.” Dr. Kase designed the Kinesio Taping Method to facilitate the body’s natural healing powers, and Kinesio Tape to meet the unique requirements of his method. Forty years later, his method has changed how rehabilitation is practiced. Each roll of Kinesio Tape continues Dr. Kase’s vision, by allowing patients to take the treatment home.
Muscle & Joint Support Tape With Original Wave Design
Why Use Kinesio Tex Classic?
Kinesio Tex Classic employs a unique combination of thinness, elasticity and adhesive wave pattern that microscopically lifts the skin and creates a space between the skin and underlying tissues. This results in relief from soreness, pressure and irritation caused by injury or chronic conditions and can also enhance lymphatic drainage. The elasticity of Kinesio Tape also provides muscular support to injured or weak areas without restricting range of motion.
What Is Kinesio Tape Made Of?
Kinesio Tape is made of 100% high-grade cotton for comfort and breathability, and contains no latex or medications. The backing contains a light, medical-grade adhesive made of 100% hypoallergenic acrylic. Unlike traditional athletic tape, most Kinesio Tape applications can be worn for 3-5 days to allow the therapeutic benefits to continue, 24 hours per day. Kinesio Tape is made to withstand sweating, showering and swimming without coming off or irritating skin.
How Is Kinesio Tape Used?
The Kinesio Taping Method is an approach to therapeutic taping that involves taping over and around muscles and joints, rather than wrapping them tightly as conventional athletic taping does. This increases circulation to the injured area, as well as lymphatic drainage, which reduces swelling, bruising and pressure on sensitive pain receptors. When worn continuously, Kinesio Tape provides support without restricting range of motion and can accelerate the healing process and limit down time.
