Physiologix kinesiology tape is a versatile sports therapy solution that provides effective support and stability without restricting movement. Professional and amateur athletes are using kinesiology tape to support their injury recovery and prevention.

Kinesiology Tape Explained

Physiologix kinesiology tape consists of a combination of elastic, cotton, and latex-free fibres which create adhesive properties. These materials make the tape flexible, breathable, and water-resistant. This allows for long-lasting, comfortable use that doesn’t restrict movement.

Kinesiology tape mimics the thickness and elasticity of the outer layer of the skin. The pressure provided by the tape offers support to the joints and muscles. Physiologix kinesiology tape stands out from other sports tapes as it does not impede or inhibit movement. Furthermore, kinesiology improves blood circulation which can aid pain relief and reduce swelling.
