Kinesiology tape is a popular aid to support movements, muscular pain or swelling. However, there are some myths surrounding this tape. There is a myth that the tape improves blood circulation. However, in fact, there is no scientific evidence to support this. However, tape shows movement of tissue fluid. Another myth is that the direction in which a tape is placed determines the effect. There is no evidence for this either. If you consider that a tape always mechanically contracts towards the middle, this myth is no longer valid. Last but not least, it is often claimed that the tape can relieve pain. Although it can provide some temporary relief, it is important to treat the underlying cause of the pain and, above all, to restore physical performance. It is important to be aware of these myths and rely on sound information to achieve the best possible results with kinesiology tape.
