All Instructions | Tape Removal Instructions

Symptoms & Causes:
This may be caused by stubbing a finger or catching a ball the wrong way.

For this application you will need:

  • 1 precut strip of StrengthTape
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 1 partner

Here are your simple steps to apply.

  1. Using scissors, cut the strip in half, from one end to the other.
  2. Then, placing the two halves together, fold them in half with the 4 ends aligned to cut rounded corners all at once.
  3. With the hand in a relaxed position, measure up the forearm about 4 inches above the wrist, then twist and stretch to break the backer paper, and with 0% stretch, anchor and rub the end on the forearm.
  4. Next, peel back the paper and with 0% stretch, place the tape on the wrist and about halfway up the hand toward the wounded finger.
  5. Then, with 10% stretch, place the rest of the tape on the top of the finger, ending on the last knuckle. Remove the paper, and with 0% stretch apply very end of the tape.
  6. Finally, cut the other side of the tape in half, place both pieces together, and using scissors, cut rounded corners into the ends.
  7. With one of these pieces, wrap the knuckle that has the pain, using 0% stretch all the way around. The other piece can be used as an extra later on.
  8. Rub the entire application with your hand or some of the backer paper to create heat so the adhesive will stick much better to the skin.
