Kinesiotape is perfect for reducing swelling, supporting muscles, and helping with muscle contraction while an injury heals. It can be used on nearly any injury from Plantar Fasciitis to Neck Pain. Kinesiotape is a cotton tape that is breathable, hypoallergenic, and it can stretch to up to 140% its original length so it can move with you. It can be worn for up to 3 days at a time and is water resistant so you can swim and shower with it.

Leukotape is a rayon-backed adhesive tape that has an extremely strong zinc oxide adhesive. It is very rigid and will not give with movement, even when you sweat.

Athletic Tape is used in combination with the above tapes to add support to kinesiotape, or to prevent the tape from being too rigid with leukotape.
