Follow this easy kinesiology taping application video. Often used over the POINT OF PAIN or swelling. It can provide pain relief and help reduce swelling. To save time for this AC JOINT 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.


  • Cut the tape if necessary (don't forget to round the edges!)
  • Rip the ends of the I-Strip
  • Using the centre technique, apply tape with 50% stretch over point of pain
  • Lay anchors with 0% stretch


  • Rip the ends of the I-Strip
  • Prepare short I-Strip by using the centre technique and removing the backing paper
  • Apply tape with 50% stretch over the point of pain
  • Lay 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.
