Is Kinesio tape the same as athletic tape?

Kinesiotaping is a form of physical therapy that uses elastic tape to help treat injuries and pain. It’s also used for sports performance, rehabilitation after surgery or injury, and even prevention of certain types of muscle soreness. The key difference between traditional athletic taping and kinesiotaping is that it doesn’t use adhesive tape like those found in athletic tapes. Instead, you apply pressure with an elastic wrap around your skin.

Can Kinesio tape hurt you?

Kinesio tape is stretchable and moves around with the body so you don’t feel any sort of pain while it is applied to your body.
