Taping the Neck
Neck pain and strains can be difficult to treat, but taping can provide you with some relief. Tape can help your neck feel more supported and provides light compression. Whether it’s the back, side or front of your neck, there are taping applications that can help.
Neck pain may be related to a shoulder injury, which is why we have included applications that involve the shoulder as well. While tape is designed to be applied any time, it’s most important if you’re planning on doing something physically active.
If you think you may do an activity that could strain your neck, make sure you apply tape beforehand. It acts as a support from the outside to prevent damage to the soft tissue deep below your skin. Please keep reading for step-by-step application instructions.
