Kinesiology tape is a thin, stretchy tape particularly effective for relieving muscular pain and spasms. Once applied, most applications can be worn up to 5 days, providing 24/7 support the entire time it’s worn. Watch this space as later this week we will bring you a special feature on taping for common football injuries.It can be applied anywhere on the body as demonstrated by Philippe Mexes of France who is one of the few to have chosen black kinesiology tape to support his knee. Croatia’s Darijo Srna sported blue tape on his neck which can alleviate neck pain or spasms, whilst his team mate Ivan Perišić (above) opted for a left shoulder application.
In the meantime, many thanks to those of you who have sent in your UEFA Euro 2012 spots, please keep them coming.
