According to their website, “KT Tape is an elastic sports tape designed to relieve pain while supporting muscles, tendons, and ligaments.”
Translation? KT Tape is life.
I have issues with my knee and with plantar fasciitis, which KT Tape helps greatly with. Two summers ago, after physical therapy and visits with my chiropractor, she taped up my knee with KT Tape and I’ve used it ever since.
What I truly love about KT Tape, besides the fact that it keeps my knee stable when I am working out, is that I can wear it underneath leggings and capris when running- which is something that I can’t do with my knee brace.
The KT Tape line is extensive, coming in different sizes, colors, patterns, and materials. Their gentle tape is free from latex and easier to remove than their traditional tape.
If you are new to KT Tape, what’s great about this company is that they have a YouTube channel FULL of tutorials for almost every ailment. My first go round at KT Tape, I didn’t do it very well. It took me a few tries to get it right and now? I’m a pro. 😉
I take KT Tape with me to every race, on every run, and apparently- I need to keep some in my purse for when friends need it.
