Has anyone with EDS tried KT tape and liked it? I used it for a bit, but I don’t think it helped. Maybe I’m applying it incorrectly.

      Be very careful with it. If it’s not applied correctly it can do more damage than good. I recommend looking up a guide specific for EDS online

      i find it really helpful especially on muscles that hurt from overuse! but your have to be really careful about skin sensitivities!

      If you can spend the money, the body braid works WAYYYY better than KT tape! Since it is not adhesive, and aligns your body so that dislocations don’t happen

      I like it to a certain extent but the adhesive rips skin really easily (speaking from experience 💀)taking it off in the shower or with oil helps though

      It has been at times very helpful for me in terms of reducing pain and inflammation related to my joint damage/ instability. I can’t say that it helped at all with stability itself, but I did find that it provided pain relief in my lower back/ hips.

      I used to use it on my knees and it helped keep them in place, not as well as a brace but better than nothing, but then I developed an allergy to the adhesive so I can't wear it any more :/

      I had better help with cobalt because the adhesive on the KT tape irritated my skin and even though the stability on my ankles, wrist, knees and elbows did help I couldn't tolerate the adhesive

      I’ve tried it for several joints, no luck

      I sometimes use it for ankle stability, I usually just leave it on until it starts to fall off because taking it off is painful

      If your gonna use it I recommend being very careful taking it off so your skin doesn’t tear. I think coconut oil maybe is helpful to loosen it before removing.

      I use it on my elbows to help stop hyper extensions and I really like it for that but some of my other joints hurt worse when I use it on them. I had a physical therapist teach me how to use it so I knew I was doing it right but Google works well too.
