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.

However it is really simple to cut a SPORTTAPE FLEX roll so for some simple cutting tips please check out the How To Cut Video and to master some of the techniques take a look at the Application Techniques 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.
