Biofeeze and TheraBand Kinesiology Tape: the dynamic duo of pain relief. But before you go on a spraying and taping frenzy, make sure you’re executing the application correctly to deliver a safe, effective result.
How to Properly Use Kinesiology Tape and a Topical Analgesic Simultaneously
To use Biofreeze and TheraBand Kinesiology Tape together, the key is to do so in the correct order.
- Step 1: Apply the tape. For a more detailed instruction on the best application methods and uses of taping, check out last week’s post.
- Step 2: Spray Biofreeze on affected area. If menthol is applied before the tape, the menthol will not be able to breathe properly and will not deliver the desired results.
- Repeat up to four times a day.
