Do you suffer from knee pain as a result of an old sports injury or a chronic medical condition? Do you miss being able to enjoy playing different types of sports because you are worried about reinjuring your knee? Do you find yourself limiting your activities with your children? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should try using knee tape. There are several different types of medical and sports taping products on the market today, including kinesiology tape, acupuncture tape, athletic tape, and sports tape. It is important to select the right one for maximum results.

Differences between Knee Tape Products

Both athletic tape and sports tape products have very limited applications. The tape is normally firm and stiff, so it makes bending and moving the knee in the normal range of motion difficult. The tape may also contain latex. Further, these products are not waterproof, so if sweat and water gets on or under the tape, it can start to fall off. In addition, the tape is only meant to be worn for a few hours at a time, because it is not breathable.

Acupuncture tape does provide targeted relief when applied to the knees, and it offers a latex-free option. However, it does require expert application for the best results. Just like athletic and sports tape products, the tape is only worn for a short period of time. Kinesiology tape provides the best benefits of all the different knee tape products, but requires expert application, because the tape has to be cut to the right length and size. Another type of kinesiology tape which is easy to use, and which does not require expert application, is SpiderTech, because it is available in our exclusive pre-cut designs.
