  • Use Knee Tape to Protect Your Knees against Injury

    Before undertaking strenuous activities where you will be bending your knees, it is worthwhile to protect your knees using knee tape. This special type of tape is designed to provide added support to the muscles to help lower the likelihood of sustaining an injury, compared to not using any taping product. In addition, the tape helps protect people who have already had a previous knee injury, as well as those recovering from a current injury.

    The knee tape integrates with the body so that you do not realize it is there. The weave pattern of the tape is uniquely designed to provide elasticity and move as your knee and leg moves. As a result, it replicates the same elasticity and thickness of your skin, while supporting and stabilizing the area, without adversely affecting your normal range of motion.

    Besides protecting your knees, you can apply the same type of tape to multiple regions on your body. With many precut designs available, it is possible to increase support for your ankles, elbows, wrists, shoulder, neck, back, groin, and other muscle groups. Go ahead and tape your entire body when you want complete protection for all of your muscle groups.

    SpiderTech knee and body tape, which is referred to as Elastic Sports Tape is made from 100 percent breathable cotton and is completely latex-free. It is completely waterproof, so you do not have to worry about the tape coming off if it gets wet. You can wear the tape for up to five days at a time before it has to be changed.

    Bring Relief from Minor Pain with Drug-Free Spider Tape

    If you are looking for a drug-free way to bring relief and support from muscle injuries, you should try Spider Tape. This revolutionary kinesiology tape is designed to help alleviate your discomfort while helping to promote healthy healing without the use of strong prescription medications. The tape can be applied to anywhere your muscles ache and feel sore. It may be used for all aspects of your life, whether you are active in sports, weight training, cardio training, or have an ongoing issue, looking for a way to improve your posture, and deal with minor back, neck, or shoulder pain.

    Achieve Replicable Results with Spider Tape

    Unlike other kinesiology taping products on the market today, Spider Tape is available in several precut designs. You never have to worry about cutting rolled tape again. The problem with using a rolled product is it is difficult to replicate successful placement and results. You might place the tape on your body one time, and achieve outstanding results, but the next time, you are unable to replicate the same outcome.

    Fortunately, this is not an issue with SpiderTech taping products. Because the tape is already precut, you never have to worry whether you cut the right length, or other such issues. Instead, you can quickly apply it to the area of the body that hurts the most. Your results are easy to replicate every single time you replace the tape.

  • Recover Sooner while Relieving Minor Pain with Sports Injury Tape

    Relieving the minor pain and discomfort coming with sports injuries is important. You might need to get back into the game and do not have time for this distraction. Kinesiology sports injury tape is one useful product that helps alleviate your suffering. This special tape provides protection to the injured area of your body. It is designed to help relieve pressure from overworked muscles, lower your pain, and help control swelling.

    This type of sports injury tape is applied differently from others. Rather than wrapping the affected area, it is placed in strips to create unique patterns. Because it is elastic, it can be pulled to increase and decrease the tape’s tension, to create various effects. The tape is about the same thickness as the skin and helps increase support to the affected area of the body.

    When applied correctly, kinesiology injury tape provides a gentle tug on the skin and lower fascial layers, which allows agitation to occur and mechanical lifting of the superficial tissues. The tape prevents swelling of injured muscles when it is applied in such a manner to create a low amount of pressure on the affected area. This pressure helps fluid drain and move away from the joints and muscles.

    It is vital to apply the tape immediately following an injury. By applying it sooner, rather than later, your recovery time is often greatly reduced. Imagine being able to return to your favorite sport or activity after just a few days, by using the tape, compared to a week or longer by not using kinesiology taping.

    What Is Kinesiology Tape?

    You may wonder what kinesiology tape is, because this product has become popular with many professional athletes, as well as regular people who attempt to follow proper physical fitness. Kinesiology tape is a special type of tape made from 100 percent breathable cotton, and it is latex free. It is elastic and can be stretched when applied to a specific area on the body. The tape is designed to help prevent the risks of injury, to be worn after injury, and to help with a wide variety of painful medical conditions.

    Kinesiology tape is different from other sports tapes, because it mimics the elasticity, strength, and thickness of human skin. As a result, it creates an additional layer to provide additional support to the muscles in the areas where it is being worn. It can also be worn for up to five days before it has to be changed. Since the tape is breathable, it allows air to reach the skin, as well as pulls sweat away from areas under the tape to keep you dry. Further, the tape is waterproof, so you do not have to worry if it gets wet when you shower or if you get caught out in the rain.

    What Is the Difference between Kinesiology Tape Brands?

    There are several different brands of kinesiology tape. Each provides similar benefits and features. However, SpiderTech products are pre-cut for specific body areas to help save you time. This added bonus eliminates the guess work in cutting sections of rolled tape to the proper size. All you do is follow the easy application instructions and apply it to your body.
