ABOUT TACK TAPE
Tack Tape is a type of kinesiology tape, a super stretchy band of athletic tape made from elasticised cotton fabric that’s strategically placed on injured parts of the body or areas requiring extra support, to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
The thinness and elasticity of Tack Tape is like your own skin, so while you’re wearing it you can enjoy free, unrestricted movement and long-lasting comfort.
Tack Tape differs significantly from traditional pain-relief or muscle strapping tape, which is designed to provide rigid support and minimise movement.
One of the main benefits of Tack Tape comes from its high stretchability that allows it to be worn like a second skin and provide effective treatment to targeted areas of the body without interfering with movement. Tack Tape is a go-to for athletes dealing with pulled muscles, runner’s knee, shin splints and more. After recovery, you can wear Tack Tape to maintain optimum performance and reduce the likelihood of future injuries.
The primary function of Tack Tape is based upon the principles of kinesiology—the scientific study of the body’s movements—to assist and support muscles and the way they interact with the body. Tack Tape tackles pain through two basic systems: physical and neurological.
