Follow this easy kinesiology taping application video for NECK PAIN using SPORTTAPE FLEX to provide dynamic support and pain relief. To save time for this neck pain 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.


  • Measure the tape from the upper back to the hair line of the neck
  • Rip the ends of the Y-Strip


  • Lay the base of the Y-Strip with 0% stretch
  • Apply the tail with 0% stretch up the back
  • Tilt the neck downwards and to the left
  • Apply the right tail of the Y-Strip with 0% stretch
  • Repeat for the other side and stretch in the opposite direction


  • Slump the head forwards
  • Prepare an I-Strip using the Centre Technique by removing the central piece of backing paper.
  • Apply the I-Strip with 50% stretch across the neck
  • Lay the ends 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.
