Kinesiotape

I bought kinesiotape from local pharmacies a couple of times and gave it up for a while (no effect) until I tried this https://www.elyth.de/en/tape-kinesio...e-kinesiology/ and it is excellent (CHF 20 online).

Does anyone have preferences for another particular brand?
Price is also of relevance

I use it mainly on my back.

Many thanks!

Aleydis

Re: Kinesiotape

Oddly enough I got some decent stuff from Aldi a while back. I used it on my ankle so can't comment on whether it works on backs, but it stayed fast without giving me any irritation and seemed to do the trick, and it cost buttons.

I'm not a big believer in it, to be honest, and I feel it just provides a "reminder" that you have a hurty bit so it further protects you from overusing it, but, in this case, it ticked the boxes.

Re: Kinesiotape

It's really good for making people think you are really fit.

I stick a bit on my leg and go watch the triathlon, hey presto, people think I'm one of the athletes.

The aldi stuff is not so good for this purpose, better with the higher end stuff like compex.

Re: Kinesiotape

When my children cut themselves and need a sticking plaster, they reckon the super hero ones rather than the plain ones work better.

Can't believe people get taken in by this nonsense.

Re: Kinesiotape

Dear All,

I would appreciate all opinions because I do not want to spend money on stuff that does not do anything for me. However, if you want to post something like Tom1234 or Jonh_H did above, I kindly ask you to refrain.

Many thanks again!

If it's an ongoing problem, maybe make an appointment with the physio. You can then treat the cause rather than tape up the pain.

Well being that I actually am an athlete and I have tried various, self applied and applied by a pro, like a physio from compex.

In my expert opinion, just choose a color to match your shoes. I find them no use other than a fashion accessory with a possible placebo feel good factor thrown in.

Er, I think that's what I hinted at in my post. As John.H suggested, perhaps you are buying the wrong colour?

The placebo effect only works on human beings, Tom.
