Spider tape is a kinesiology tape that helps to support injured muscles and joints. The tape is made of cotton, and does not contain any latex, making it wearable for nearly all patients. Spider tape is pre-cut in patterns that are designed for various body regions. The tape is water resistant and can be worn for many days – most patients find that the tape lasts for 3-5 days. It is recommended that patients shave before having tape applied to help with tape adherence. Spider tape can be used by anyone – you don’t have to be an athlete! Dr. Newman will be happy to discuss spider tape with you during your appointment.
