Best Kinesiology Tape Cutting Techniques

Regardless of the length of kinesiology sports tape, we recommend to round off all ends to prevent the corners from lifting to easily due to clothing friction against the skin. Here are the most common kinesiology tape cutting techniques:

The I-Strip is most widely used. The length will vary based on the length of the targeted muscle. We found that 6” to 10” per I-Strip is sufficient for 90% of all applications. Up to 4 pieces may be required to achieve maximum benefits per application for larger joints.

A Fan-Strip is primarily used to reduce swelling or contusions over small and large areas. Cover the entire area with the tape for better results. Crisscrossing multiple Fan-Strips has shown better results. The Fan-Strip is always applied unstretched.
