Reduce Risks for Muscle-Related Injuries by Using Sports Tape
It is possible to reduce the risks associated with sports injuries related to torn, strained and sprained muscles by using sports tape. This type of tape should be applied prior to the sporting event, like football, basketball or baseball. Uniforms can easily be worn over areas where tape is applied, and they will still feel comfortable. Movements are not restricted in any way, so you do not have to worry about your range of motion.
For areas that are not covered by clothing, the sports tape adheres firmly to your skin and remains in place as you move. It does not hamper your performance on the field or court. Because of the added support the tape provides your muscles, it increases your strength.
For Best Adhesion Make Sure Your Skin is Clean
Before applying the tape to your body, make sure the area is clean, dry, free from sweat, and is not oily or greasy. The tape is already pre-cut in a variety of different shapes and colors, including black, blue, beige and red. There is no difference in the overall performance of the tape based on the color. Each color offers the same benefits.
Each pre-cut design is intended for different areas of the body. You should make sure you have the right tape for the areas where you want it applied, such as hips, back, elbows, wrists, neck, shoulder, hamstrings and ankles. Each style is the same size, as we have found this is appropriate for approximate 80 percent of the population. If you happen to be outside of this range, we recommend you try our roll format tape instead.
