You know I like to share new things I've learned or tried.  One of my new favorite things is kinesiology tape.

Any one who follows me on Facebook knows that I was injured in the last soccer game I played.  An opposing player missed the ball and kicked me directly in the muscle that runs along the outside of your shin bone.  I went down like a felled tree and couldn't play the rest of the game.

The next day, I limped into the office. Dr. Cho peeked around the corner just to say "hi".  He saw me limping and immediately had me lay on a table so he could apply some RockTape (kinesiology tape) on the injury.  Dr. Cho knew exactly what happened, and even knew how it felt since he plays soccer as avidly as I do.  He's usually the one limping!

The kinesiology tape instantly made my leg feel better.  It wasn't perfect but the pain decreased.  At Dr. Cho's advice, I took two days off to let it heal.  His parting words to me were, "I always wear shin guards even when it's just a scrimmage because there's a lot of donkeys out there!"  Dr. Cho is my second new favorite thing.  It is a huge advantage to know a health care practitioner who plays the same sport.

Kinesiology tape has been around for years.  I was skeptical about it until this experience.  It can be used for compression or decompression of a specific area; for muscle strain/sprain, tendonitis, and a variety of other ailments.  If you're a runner, use it to support your IT band.  If you play tennis, use it to support your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

Target sells a brand of kinesiology tape called KT Tape but it was out of stock.  Fortunately I purchased a roll of Rocktape from Dr. Cho's office.
