How to Reduce Lower Back Strain with SummaTape 

  • Tear the backing down the middle of your SummaTape strip.
  • Be careful not to tear the tape itself. 

  • Pull the backing back on each end in order to form two tabs.
  • Each backing tab should be about an inch long. 

  • Using both hands and leaning forward, hold the strip behind your lower back, then pull a few more inches of backing off.
  • At this point, about 50% of the backing should be coming off the SummaTape.

  • Put the exposed SummaTape horizontally over your spine and lower back, rubbing it into place and peeling off the remainder of the backing as you go. 
  • When you’re finished, the strip should be parallel to the ground.
