A common example of one of the questions we get asked most frequently by potential customers is: “I'm not a runner but I have a sore knee. Can your tape help me?” To which of course the answer is, yes, it can !
The reasons as to why we think people ask us this type of question are:
1. KT Tape, (or Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape,) has for many years been referred to - rather confusingly - as 'sports tape' or 'athletic tape' But it is not just that! Far from it.
2. KT Tape is already widely used by athletes - both professional and amateur - and as such can often be seen on professional footballers, tennis players, and track & field athletes at major sporting events such as the Olympics, The World Cup, and Wimbledon.
3. Over the years, we ourselves have spent a huge amount of time attending marathons, triathlons, velothons and various other sporting events taping people up before race day. (On average we attend more than 300 expos per year worldwide!!!)
It is very important to mention that we are extremely proud of how loved our tape is in the sporting community. However, it is equally important to point out that the benefits it can provide for any muscle, ligament, tendon or joint injury, work just the same, regardless of whether you twisted your ankle falling down the stairs or running a marathon! We can potentially provide some kind of relief for just about EVERYONE! It doesn't matter if you are 8 years old or 80, a fitness fanatic or a couch potato. We can - or more importantly - YOU can tape and provide support for your injury with KT Tape.
