How does a tape work?

The scientific community does not agree on the working principle of tape. Initially, people used hard bands to restrict exercise, but studies have shown that this is only effective in the early stages of exercise, and over time, hard bands cannot be tolerated.

It is also suggested that tape helps to perform proprioception, or that your body knows its ability in space. This is important to every athlete because it can tell you where your arms are when you throw, or where your legs are when you kick the ball. The idea is that tape can help you feel what part of your body. Although there may be some facts, this is only part of the puzzle.

Tape is also believed to reduce pain. Although it may have a certain placebo effect, it has been a trusted friend of athletes for many years, providing support, providing relief, and helping them recover from injuries.

What are the kinds of tapes?

There are six kinds of sports tapes, which have different functions. They are rigid tape, under tape, elastic tape, felt tape, cohesive tape, Kinesio-type tape. Among these tapes, Kinesio-type tape is most commonly seen in sports because it adjusts to the skin and glides as you move.

How to wear sports tapes?

If you want to stop your ankle from rolling, you can use gum-based tape.

Cut or tear two fixing tapes about 12 inches (30 cm) in length, or 6 inches (15 cm) if using Kinesio tape. This length is suitable for stretched tape. Apply the tape to the front and inside of the foot. Twist the tape under the sole to avoid bending, and then pull it up to the front (front) of the tibia. You want to end about 4 inches (10 cm) below the knee. When applying tapes, keep your feet in a neutral position and use the second piece for reinforcement. You may need to cut two small anchor strips about 2 inches (5 cm) long to secure the ends. Place these points horizontally on the start and end points. Check for numbness or tingling, adjust or repackage if necessary.

Besides, the tape can also stabilize your knee, solidify your shoulders, open your elbows, shore up a wounded muscle.
