Application Troubleshooting

Applying kinesiology tape is a unique process that may require some practice. Here are the most common issues people encounter and our expert solutions to help you apply the tape effectively and with confidence.

What do I do if the tape sticks to itself during application?

If your tape sticks to itself or has wrinkles during application, gently stretch the tape until it releases from itself and then continue with your application.

How can I get the most out of my tape application?

Here are a few tips to help your tape stay on longer:

  1. Remove hair, oils, and lotions.
  2. Apply tape only to clean, dry, undamaged skin.
  3. Ensure there is little to no stretch in your tape (stretch the muscle, not the tape).
  4. Rub the tape to activate the adhesive.
How can I avoid touching the adhesive during application?

When removing the backing paper to expose each individual tab, do not remove the entire tab. Leave about an inch that you can use to hold on to the tape and ensure it is applied in the perfect spot.

Fantastic.

I had to do a lot of walking for the past month and without the hip tape I would have been in severe pain. With the tape, I had very little hip pain.

Fantastic.

They are VERY comfortable once you get them on...initially you kind of notice them but then, eventually, you don't even feel them! I get a lot of pain relief from these!
