K TAPING FOR SWELLING

    1

  • Measure a strip of K Tape from the upper calf to the top of the foot.

  • Create a LYMPHATIC FAN by cutting the strip down the centre twice to create 4 tails.

  • If you're unsure how to cut a LYMPH FAN, see our video 'How To Cut K Tape'.

    2

  • Apply the anchor at the nearest lymph node (for lower limb this is the popliteal fossa behind the knee).

  • Lay down fans in a wave pattern with 15%-20% stretch over or around the site of swelling.

    3

  • Repeat the fanning over from the opposite site, covering as much of the swelling/haematoma as possible.

  • Rub to activate the glue and wait at least 30 minutes before starting any exercise.
