I use this for my shoulder as I had injured it while working out. I've never been able to get it back to normal as I have to keep using my arms, so my shoulder never has time to repair. I use this tape to tap up my shoulder as I am allergic to the material oxide tape. This is not quite as good as that, but it does the job. It give the support that my shoulder need and stops me from stretching it. I feel my shoulder is finally healing.
