Does Kinesiology Tape Really Work? Breaking Down The Science To Improve Your Performance

Kinesiology Tape (AKA KT Tape, RockTape, Kinesio Tape) is used a lot by athletes. We hear claims of pain reduction and reduced inflammation. But does kinesiology tape work and how?

As a sports chiropractor who works with a lot of athletes I often get these questions. In this video I go over how kinesiology tape works, when it is a good option for pain relief, and the mechanisms and science behind how it helps. We also go over how to apply K-tape properly and how to take kinesiology tape off without pain.

I also give a demonstration of how to self apply kinesiology tape to help with tennis elbow pain.
