In October 2013, I was presenting at the IronMan Triathlon Sports Medicine Conference and was asked about the differences between the various Kinesiology Tapes (K-Tapes) on the market. A common misconception is that all tapes ‘are about the same’. Clinicians have preferences for which tape they use. Some clinicians will use tape that is pre-cut, while others say certain K-tape brands have better adhesion — or maybe cooler colors and prints. That is all well and good. For me, the biggest difference is the education and protocols associated with the brand.
