Tape your knees with kinesiology tape

Man jogging with his knee bandaged with kinesiology tape for stabilization

Our knees are constantly exposed to stress in everyday life, which is intensified by sporting activity or a predominantly sedentary activity and can lead to knee pain. This restricts the freedom of movement of the knee joint and the motivation to do sports despite pain also decreases.

With kinesiology tape, you can give your knee the necessary stability without restricting mobility too much to pursue your passion for sport. Note: If you have knee pain, you should first consult a doctor who can determine the cause of the injury.

  • Taping knees: Step 1

    Stick the first Y-tape with the wide side above the knee joint and stick the two narrow strips more generously in an arc around the kneecap.

  • Tape knees: Step 2

    Take the second Y-tape and start with the wide side below the knee. The two narrow strips of kinesiotape are wrapped around the kneecap as before, but this time slightly tighter so that the adhesive is on the skin and not on the other Y-tape. For the taping of several strips on top of each other, it is advisable to use tapes with different colors.

  • Tape knees: Step 3

    Finally, you can take the last strip of kinesiology tape and stick it across below the kneecap. Finally, rub the tape bandage several times in order to activate the adhesive with the frictional heat and so that the full effect of the tape can unfold.

Tips for using kinesiology tape

Round off the corners

Before taping, round off the edges with scissors so that the corners don't peel off so easily. You don't need to do this with pre-cut kinesiology tapes because the corners are already rounded

Stroke the tape several times

After you have applied the tape, rub the tape several times to activate the adhesive

Clean skin

Make sure your skin is dry and clean before taping.

It is advisable to shave the area beforehand when using it with thicker hair, so that the kinesiology tape holds better and it is easier to remove after use.

Creases on the tapes during use are normal

It is normal and intended that waves may form on the tape after application during muscle relaxation. These are even intended and are called convolutions.

To ensure the compatibility of the kinesiology tape with your skin, we recommend that you test a small piece of tape on the skin in advance and leave it there for about 30 minutes.

If you experience itching or an allergic reaction, remove the Kinesiology Tape and stop using it.
