An adapted questionnaire from Wagner, A (2015) with a Likert-scale (1-5-point scale) format was used to rate the spasmed muscle in the hamstring without the Kinesio Tape. The Scale Questionnaire developed by Renner, C (2012) was used to measure the effectiveness of the Kinesio Tape on the athletes spasmed muscle in the hamstring. Means and standard deviations are computed to summarize the responses to the Likert-type questionnaires. Frequency and percentage were used to assess the descriptive data. Weighted Mean was used to determine the effect of Kinesio Tape on the spasmed muscle in the hamstring while Sign Test was used to determine the significant difference of their experience before and after the application of the Kinesio Tape among the varsity athletes. The result show that the Kinesio Tape was found to have a good effect on the spasmed hamstring muscles of the varsity athletes.
