There's no real wrong way that can hurt you. Well maybe we'll lose some skin hair and have unsightly tan. If you're me, removing an improperly placed tape hurts the wallet: "ahhhh man, this stuff ain't cheap."
A good question to ask is, does it really work for you? It did nothing for me when I needed some sort of support/pain management coming off of shoulder surgeries. I've stopped using them as soon as my shoulder was strong enough to serve back-to-back 3 setter singles.
thanks for the feedback. tape sure ainīt cheap
friend of mine had a shoulder surgery two years ago, took her a long time to start playing again, and to this day the shoulder hurts after about an hour of playing. she started using kinesio tape a month ago and she reports much reduced pain.
