If you've ever been to a functional fitness event, you'll have seen athletes walking around with various body parts taped up. But what is kinesiology tape, and who should be using it?
Kinesiology tape has a couple of uses within functional fitness:
- Injury Prevention. Athletes tend to use tape during competition to prevent known issues from flaring up, and to prevent injury.
- Injury Rehabilitation. If you're currently trying to fix an injury, kinesiology tape may compliment your treatment and rehabilitation.
