Kinesio Tape is a special elastic tape that is used to help increase healing,
support muscles and joints, and relieve pain. It is being widely used in
professional sports like football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer,
tennis, swimming, biking, and running. Kinesio tape has worked great for us
with a wide range of athletes from the weekend warrior to the highly trained
athlete. Many of our athletes love Kinesio Tape's ability to keep them in the
game when they are having a wide range of injuries such as: muscle strains,
ankle sprains, tennis elbow, tendonitis, shoulder problems, knee problems, low
back pain, neck pain, and many others.
Lance Armstrong is quoted in his 2003 book Every Second Counts that during the Tour de France his team used "a special hot-pink athletic tape that came from Japan and seemed to have magical powers." He said "Sometimes we'd be so wrapped up in hot-pink tape that we'd look like dolls, a bunch of broken dolls, but the tape worked..." But don't worry...If hot-pink isn't your color we also have blue and black!
