KT Tape

KT Tape = Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape

I went to Dicks Sporting Goods on my lunch break and bought a pack of black KT Tape. I am HOPING that I can put this on my knee and it will help me get back up running!

According to the packaging it reduces muscle pain, increase mobility and enchance recovery.

**From their website****
"KT Tape is a revolutionary sports medicine solution for treating and preventing common sports injuries such as ITBS, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, knee pain and more. Ultra-light, elastic, and strong, KT Tape is highly effective at providing pain relief, stability & support, & faster recovery for injured or sore muscles and joints-without sacrificing comfort or freedom of movement"

I am not positive that what I have is "runners knee" or if I twisted weirdly while dodging slush and mud on my Thursday run but I am willing to spend $13+ on this tape and will apply it as if I do have runners knee and HOPE that it will work wonders.

I wanted to get a fun color but Dicks had a crappy selection (5 rolls of black and 1 roll of beige) so I opted for the black. Beige is just so grandma panties of a color.

I will let you all know how it goes!!!!

***FYI I will be buying this online from now on from their website as there are a LOT more colors online and cheaper than it was at Dicks! Hopefully though, I wont need that much more...although, It might be a good idea to have some on hand at the house for just in case as it can be used for all sorts of ailments and apparently stays on for a long time!
