Runners experience a large amount of repeated movement to various muscle groups, joints, and other areas of the body. Sometimes, they accidently overextend beyond the normal range of motion and injury their bodies. Other times, they have a higher incidence of sustaining an injury due to previous injuries in a specific area, like their knees. Instead of running without any protection on your body, it is highly recommended you use kinesiology tape as knee support for runners.

To What Other Areas of the Body Can Knee Support for Runners Be Applied?

Besides providing knee support for runners, kinesiology tape is also able to be applied to other areas of the body. You can use it on your shoulders, elbows, ankles, wrists, groin muscles, and lower, middle and upper back. Just remember, there are different application methods used, depending on the area where you want to apply the cotton athletic tape. Further, how the tape is applied will determine whether it provides support or targeted relief from pain and soreness.

Because the tape is made from cotton, it is breathable and does not come off, like other types of taping products. In addition, you are able to wear the kinesiology tape for longer periods of time, up to five days, because it is waterproof.
