KT Tape is probably the most effective tool I use for running. It has helped me overcome some chronic pains. I know it doesn’t work for everyone but I stand by and I know I couldn’t have gotten this far without it! I know I have said it before, all the time lol but it honestly is very effective. It has tons of uses for different injuries. From swimming to running and cycling to wrestling!! I LOVE all the colors they come in, and all the uses it has. I mainly use it for shin splints, Scoliosis pain, and shoulder pain. I have found successful ways to make it stick (see previous KT Tape post). It is very easy to apply and it stays on even in hot humid sweaty weather. After icing my injury it is the first thing I do!!! If you haven’t noticed almost all the pictures you see of me, I have the KT Tape on somewhere lol
KT TAPE is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, strong, external support that helps to prevent injury and speed recovery. KT Tape works differently for different injuries. KT Tape can lift and support the knee cap, holding it in place for Runner’s Knee. KT Tape can support sagging muscles along the arch of the foot, relieving the connective tissues for Plantar’s Fasciitis. And KT Tape can lift the stress off of shin splints to allow pain release and give the body a better opportunity to recover. Depending on how it is applied, KT Tape supports, enables, or restricts soft tissue and its movement. By stretching and recoiling like a rubber band, KT Tape augments tissue function and distributes loads away from inflamed or damaged muscles and tendons, thereby protecting tissues from further injury. By applying KT Tape over affected tissue, athletes experience an external support which helps to prevent further injury and allows the body’s damaged tissue to rest and heal naturally despite continued activity. KT Tape also reduces inflammation and increases circulation which prevents muscle cramping and lactic acid buildup.
