Using K Tape for swimming can be tricky, but our EXTRA STICKY KINESIOLOGY TAPE is designed for anything that sport can throw at it. So when we launched it back in 2012, we put it to the test.
When Daniel Green (@danieljgreen), a Physiotherapist and Sprint Swimmer, tweeted us to say that he’s been unable to get another tape to stick in the pool, we saw our chance.
Here’s what Daniel had to say…
“As a National Level swimmer and therapist, I used KINESIOLOGY TAPE for swimming quite a lot. Until now I have struggled to find a tape which stays on in the water. Previous tapes have lasted as little as 10 minutes into a 2 hour pool session. SPORTTAPE’s EXTRA STICKY K TAPE is the only tape I’ve used that stands up to multiple swim sessions and gym sessions in one application.”
“My best tip is to prevent (prehab) injury occurring in the first place, by strengthening the structures under most stress. 90% of swimmers complain of ‘swimmers shoulder’ which is a weakness of the rotator cuff. This causes impingement of the supraspinatus. This can be cured by simply strengthening the muscles around the rotator cuff. The gym is a swimmers best friend“
