Be careful with white towels as the blue dye runs when wet if you rub the towel across it.
I researched various taping methods and found the video by Lumosinc on YouTube to be the best for plantar fasciitis.
An effective tape at a fraction of the cost of other tapes. Recommended.
There's still a raging debate about the efficacy of kinesio tape generally. I know of some physios who simply refuse to talk to any physio who advocates using kinesio tape. because they're so sceptical themselves. To me, it's a no-brainer for lots of injuries. I can think of lots of cases where it wouldn't be sensible, but for simply applying under some tension so that it does some of the work for the affected muscle (and thereby letting it recover a little), I can't see why you wouldn't use it.
For my recurrent achilles/calf injury (which is largely a result of a biomechanical weakness in my left achilles - I do some exercises, but sometimes get complacent and it can cause niggles), I know pretty deterministically that if I apply the kinesio tape from my heel, up the back of my calf and onto the top of my calf muscles at about 50-70% stretch, I'll be able to get through most long runs or races without exacerbating it.
After trying 4 different brands of tape, I find the Mueller tape is the best value. The blue seems to stick best for me (although physios tell me black is supposed to be best since it absorbs heat, and the adhesive is supposedly heat-activated). You do need to make sure the area to be taped is NOT moist or wet. Apply it when you're cold, not just out of the shower, or indeed at all sweaty. Follow the instructions and give it a good (but careful) rub all along its length, and remember to have NO stretch at the ends. Normally, the blue Mueller tape will last 3-5 days before eventually coming off in the shower.
It's one of the cheaper brands available, it's on Prime, so you can get it quickly if need be, and it works for me. Result.
One tip is to cut a curve at the ends of the tape to help stop it catching on clothing.
Another tip is to heat up the place you want to attach the tape to beforehand. Extra heat helps the adhesive bond.
Finally I also use a pre tape spray at times when I want to add extra security to the adhesive.
These tips also help assure security of the tape if it gets wet. I wouldn't think a full dunking (swimming for example) will allow the tape to stay in place, but certainly a shower is fine.
It's not a complete answer to my knee problems, far from it, but it is a helpful produce to use all the time. I can't comment on other uses, but for what I use it for it works really well.
