What is K-Tape/Dynamic tape/Stretchy tape?
Kinesio tape (K-tape) is basically a coloured, elasticated tape that adheres to the skin and depending on the orientation and placement, is claimed to aid muscular disorders and lymphedema issues. There are lots of different brands such as Dynamic TapeTM, RockTapeTM, and K-TapeTM which are all slightly different in terms of the materials, adhesive, and how they are used but essentially all fall under the banner of stretchy sports tape.
