What Is the Purpose of KT Tape?
The goal with KT Tape is to help individuals temporarily move in a way without pain. Taping can help achieve this by stimulating sensorimotor (sensory to motor) units to help re-communicate injured tissue(s) (nerves, fascia, muscles, joints, etc.) to the brain. This in-turn helps an individual move without pain and/or in a pattern that will less likely lead to compensation and subsequent pain.
