Kintex Precut Tape Blue
20 pre-cut tapes (á 25 cm x 5 cm) | free choice of color
Our Kintex PreCut Tape is already pre-cut and can be applied immediately without scissors. The tapes can be applied as I and Y strips.
With this application technique, we will show you how to relieve and counteract non-localizable shoulder pain with the help of kinesiology tapes. For this tape application you will need a Y-shaped tape strip. You can either use our Kintex Classic Tape and cut the strips yourself or you can use our Kintex PreCut Tape and tear the tape strips accordingly. When cutting, make sure that the base (about 3-4 cm) is not divided and round the corners to increase the adhesion of the tape.
Preparation and application of the Kintex kinesiology tape
To ensure better adhesion, you should first remove all oils, creams and hair from the affected area and clean it additionally with alcohol. Localize the base of the deltoid muscle and then peel off the backing paper at the base. Now glue the base underneath the deltoid muscle. The incision of the Y should start exactly under the attachment point of the muscle. This placement is very important in order to treat the shoulder pain appropriately. Continue taping the base without additional stretching and rub the tape well. This will activate the adhesive of the tape and thus increase its adhesion. Next, guide the arm backward, tape the front strip along the shoulder without stretching and rub the tape firmly. Now guide the arm forward. If there are waves on the already taped arm, continue taping the arm, otherwise repeat the step again. Finally, bring the arm forward and apply the second rein of the Y-shaped tape along the shoulder without stretching. Here you should also see ripples as you bring the arm back along the tape. When applying this tape technique, the two tape strips meet above the shoulder and may also overlap here.

Kintex Tape should be left on for approximately 1 week, with the main effect expected in the first 3-5 days after application. You can shower, bathe, swim or do sports with the tape applied. Even sweating is possible under the tape.
