KT tape provides gentle support and stabilization to muscles and joints. The tape’s elasticity allows it to lift the skin slightly, which may help reduce pressure on pain receptors and promote better movement.
The lifting effect of the tape can also facilitate improved circulation and lymphatic drainage. This may help reduce swelling and inflammation in the taped area.
Some proponents of KT taping suggest that the tape’s application can provide sensory feedback to the nervous system. This feedback might influence muscle activation patterns and potentially help with muscle imbalances.
The tactile stimulation from the tape and the potential reduction in pressure on pain receptors could contribute to pain relief for some individuals.
Depending on how the tape is applied, it can support or restrict certain movements. Athletes often use KT tape to maintain a desired range of motion while receiving some level of support.
