How does Physio Tape work and how do I use it?
Tips for treatment with Physio Tape
- Make sure your skin is clean so the physiotape adheres well. That means it should be fat-free and dry.
- To assist adhesion, the area to be treated should be cleared of hair. Physio Tape can adhere for up to 12 days and in order to use the entire time it is advisable to prepare the skin accordingly. Another advantage is that the physiotape doesn't hurt so much when you pull it off.
- To prevent the physiotape from peeling off at the edges, the ends of the tape should be rounded off. Corners have a higher potential for detachment than curves.
- After the physiotape has stuck, you can rub it with your hands more often to warm it up and make the adhesive hold better.
