Follow this easy kinesiology taping application video for HAMSTRING STRAINS & PAIN using SPORTTAPE FLEX to provide dynamic support and pain relief. To save time for this shin splints kinesiology taping application we've used pre-cut strips from our FLEX KIT for this video.
Put your shin on stretch(we found the above position the easiest for self taping)
Measure the tape down your shin
Cut the tape if necessary (don't forget to round the edges!)
Rip the ends of the I-Strip
Lay the base of the I-Strip with 0% stretch
Apply up the shin with 0% stretch over the point of pain
Anchor the end with 0% stretch
Rub to activate the glue
Prepare short I-Strip by using the center technique and removing the backing paper
Stretch the tape to 50% and apply over the point of pain.
Lay the anchors with 0% stretch
Finish by rubbing the tape to activate the adhesion
That's it! Then just wait 30mins to an hour before exercise. SPORTTAPE FLEX can be worn for up to 7 days (through multiple washes & swims) however we'd always recommend reapplying or removing after 3 days for maximum effect.
