Learn how to apply Kinesiology Tape for a GROIN STRAIN or ADDUCTOR PAIN by following our step-by-step self taping guide. Groin & Adductor strains are common in football due to the consistent changes of direction. Grab a roll of tape, and watch our self-taping guide. You’ll be back on the field in no time.




  • Put your groin on stretch. We find it easiest to be sat down with the knee bent, and then allow the knee to drop to the side.

  • Measure the tape down the legnth of your groin/adductor.

  • Cut the tape into an I STRIP and round the edges.

  • Rip the ends of the I STRIP and remove the backing paper from one end, revealing a small tab.


  • Lay the base of the I STRIP down with 0% stretch to the top of the adductor.

  • If you are taping someone else, you may want to get them to do this themselves.

  • Apply the rest of the tape down the length of the groin/adductor with 0% stretch.


  • If there is a specific point of pain then measure and cut another short strip of K Tape.

  • Rip the backing paper into 3, and remove the middle section.

  • Stretch the tape to 50% and apply the tape directly over the point of pain.

  • Stick the ends of the tape down with 0% stretch.

  • Wait at least 30 minutes before starting exercise..
