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.
Arrived within the delivery timescale.
Good product. As long as it is applied correctly, should do what it was designed for.
Irrespective of skin colour, the beige colour tape is also the best for blending and being the least noticeable beneath thin clothing.
Tip: Round off the corners before removing the backing paper. As this will reduce the chances of the corners rolling or lifting up.
Also, try to keep fingers from touching the adhesive as much as possible when applying it. Finally, don't overstretch the ends and run your finger along the tape (especially at the edges) with a little pressure to establish a good bond with the skin.
I have been using the 'Mueller' (black & blue) tape for a couple of weeks now and understand how to apply better than I did to start with (due to the many online videos) and have managed to get 5 days from it despite having hairy knees and being in the shower twice a day. In fact, the last application of the 'Mueller' tape would have lasted longer, but I felt it had been on too long personally from a hygiene perspective.
Thinking all these 'Kinesiology' tapes were the same as each other (and probably made in the same factory in China) I had ordered some cheaper kinesiology tape from China based sellers but these weren't going to arrive until late August, so I purchased a couple of rolls from a UK seller to fill the gap for £5.50 each.
What a mistake!
First attempt pealed off right away, so not a good start. :(
The next application came off part way through the night whilst asleep.
But, knowing that better results can be achieved by shaving the application area, I reluctantly shaved my knee (which I didn't need to do with the Mueller tape) and dried the area thoroughly. :(
The third application lasted 30 minutes before the ends started to peel, so who knows how it's going to cope with a shower.
Absolute waste of money.
My advice would be to purchase the 'Mueller' Kinesiology tape for a little more money as it is false economy saving a quid, only to use three times as much.
The Mueller tape has much better adhesion qualities and much better elasticity compared to the cheaper stuff.
Don't get me wrong, if the cheaper stuff is only a couple of quid delivered (like the stuff sold by the China based sellers), then fair play, you get what you pay for. But when the cheaper stuff is only a quid less? Make up your own mind!
Standing stationary for more than 5 minutes was really problematic, now after use of this tape has reduced the levels to what could be described as normal post work aches.
I am using this product with the assistance of a professional chiropractor, a vital worthwhile suggestion, as placing the tape in the correct areas is vital..
A complementary treat that has worked for me, even stays on for at least 2 baths..
