TheraBand™ Kinesiology Tape: You'll love the tape, the dispenser, the videos and more!

March 23, 2016

Is this the year you’re going to start using kinesiology tape? Or do you already use kinesiology tape, but want to improve your technique or switch up brands? Look no further than TheraBand’s Kinesiology Tape! It uses Cramer’s best-in-class adhesion, so you can be sure that the tape will provide durable support and stay stuck for up to five days. The tape is available in eight color combinations, from subtle to bold, so there’s something for everyone.

Theraband Kinesiology Tape features XactStretch™ Technology, ensuring you’ll get the right stretch every time. By following the XactStretch hexagonal guide indicators, you’ll know that the tape is being applied correctly. Whether your goal is to support muscles and joints or provide pain relief, you’ll get the results you want and won’t waste a lot of tape in the process.

Owen Stanley, ATC, head football athletic trainer at Texas A&M University, has been using Theraband Kinesiology Tape for a few years with excellent success. “We use it a lot with all types of tape jobs,” Owen says. “The support from the tape helps with the biomechanics of an injury and/or prevention. This allows athletes with minor injuries to stay on the field and practice.”

The Theraband tape helps make sure that muscles function appropriately, Owen says, "and prevents the overstretch reflex issue that can arise with tendinitis or minor muscle strain. We use it to help prevent overstretching of the muscle belly and give appropriate proprioceptive feedback as well as proper tracking of the muscle fibers.”

The tape’s XactStretch guide indicators are “extremely helpful to us,” he comments. “Regardless of how much or how little experience you have using kinesiology tape, every athlete’s anatomy is different, everyone’s usage is different, and everyone’s position on the field and day-to-day practice is different—and having the hexagons as a guide is very useful. Sometimes you might go to 25% stretch and see it’s not working, so we’ll stretch the tape to 50% next time. The hexagons also provide an image to look at so we are consistent when we redo a tape job."

Owen and his staff also use the Theraband Kinesiology Tape under other tape jobs for additional support. “Sometimes it’s for anatomical or proprioceptive support,” he says. “The Theraband tape adds a nice thin layer of support that’s preferable to a bulky tape job, and it stays adhered to our athletes through practices and games in the heat and humidity of Texas!"

The tape is latex-free, non-irritating, and allergy tested. And here’s another reason to love this kinesiology tape: no more runaway tape rolls! TheraBand’s hassle-free tape dispenser latches shut, provides an axle for unrolling and rerolling, and features a cut notch for precut rolls.
