KT TAPE is an abbreviation for Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape. It is a strong, elastic athletic tape that reduces muscle pain, increases mobility, and enhances athletic performance. KT TAPE is pre-cut so that it is fast and easy to apply. Just tear off a strip and apply it to the injured area. KT TAPE provides relief and support for muscles and joints and can be used to prevent or treat hundreds of sports injuries.

Recommended storage instructions
To maintain optimal performance, KT TAPE should be stored in a cool, dry, well ventilated place. Avoid extended exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures (above 95 degrees Fahrenheit) and or high humidity (above 65%). Best performance if used within 1 year of purchase.
Is there a difference between colors?
There is NO difference between the colors- the colors are purely cosmetic. The adhesive is the same strength and it does not matter which color you use when applying. The reason we use more than one color in the instructions is to make it easy for people to see when there is more than one strip of tape.
Should I wear it before a race or excercise?
If you have a known condition or if you need a little extra stability & support it’s always best to tape up before exercise as a preventative measure.
How long will KT Tape stay on?
KT Tape will stay on for multiple days at a time. We recommend that you do not wear it for more than 5 days. Generally, the length of time it lasts depends on where the tape is applied. For example, when applying to a knee or foot which is naturally a harsh environment for tape, the tape will generally stay on for 2-3 days. For applications such as shoulders or back the tape will last much longer.
