A Precut Kinesiology Tape for Every Injury

Pre-cut Kinesiology TapePrecut kinesiology tape comes pre-sized, pre-shaped, and prepackaged in single use packets that are easier to transport and easier to use than conventional kinesiology tape. Several different scenarios in an athlete’s life might call for precut kinesiology tape: 

1. The person applying the tape is untrained in proper measuring, cutting, and tape application and would benefit from using previously prepared tape portions and following the step-by-step written instructions included in each package of precut kinesiology tape. 

2. The athlete using the tape will be traveling and will thus require the added convenience, ease, and speed of application that precut kinesiology tape affords.

3. Along with his/her regular kinesiology tape, a high-performance athlete who competes in extreme sports might decide to keep precut kinesiology tape on hand for quick use in emergencies and for easy treatment of other, less-serious injuries.

4. An athlete may simply prefer the pre-measured size and shape, ease of use, and reduced application time that precut kinesiology tape provides.

Precut kinesiology tape comes in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, each of which is designed for a specific body location and application. Each specially designed section of precut kinesiology tape offers just the right size, shape, and configuration to bio-mechanically support and provide the greatest physiological benefit for that body part.

The following are some injuries, weaknesses, and other conditions of various parts of the body that precut kinesiology tape applications are designed to treat/support:

Neck – weakness, spasms, pain, arthritis, stiff neck, and post-surgical recovery

Shoulder – pain, arthritis, bursitis, rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder, AC (acromioclavicular) joint injury or separation, and post-surgical recovery

Elbow – arthritis, bursitis, lateral epicondylitis (tennis, shooter’s, or archer’s elbow), or medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)

Wrist – weakness, pain, sprain, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and post-surgical recovery

Upper Back – pain, posture problems, upper-cross syndrome (rounded shoulders), scapular (shoulder blade) instability, and post-surgical recovery

Lower Back – pain, spasms, stiff muscles, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, and post-surgical recovery

Hip – pain, arthritis, bursitis, iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome (a thigh injury that causes lateral knee pain), and recovery from hip-replacement surgery

Groin – pain, strain, injury, and weak or pulled adductor muscles

Hamstring – pain, strain, weakness, and pulled or tight hamstrings

Knee – pain, arthritis, bursitis, runner’s/jumper’s/cyclist’s knee, torn meniscus (cartilage), patellar (kneecap) pain or instability, and post-surgical recovery

Calf – pain, cramps, tightness, muscle injury, and pain from Achilles tendinitis

Ankle – pain, sprain, shin splints, and pain from Achilles tendinitis

Heel and Foot – pain, and plantar fasciitis

Wrist – carpal tunnel syndrome, sprained wrist, wrist strain

General bruising, swelling, contusions, edema, lymphatic congestion, and lymphedema

Precut kinesiology tape applications are currently made by SpiderTech Tape and Kinesio Tape.

Precut kinesiology tape offers athletes a convenient, high-tech alternative to rolls of conventional kinesiology tape. This specially-prepared athletic tape lets athletes take control of their own therapy. It helps them support overused muscles to prevent injury or re-injury and often allows them to continue training while their injuries heal.

Precut kinesiology tape can be a real boon to athletes who are more knowledgeable about their sport than about the principles of therapeutic taping – though it will also work just as well for those who have an expert to do their taping for them.
