|Kinesiotape for big toe joint pain|
|Kinesiotape for Arch Support|
First I just wanted to apologize. I have had to cancel several appointments for a fitting of my second pair of orthotics due to work and family emergencies. All OK now and I should be in next Thurday for my appointment. Sorry you had to keep these in your storeroom!
Also, hope I can get some guidance in better use of the kineseology tape. I find it increases my stamina and reduces pain but generally it tends to roll up and if I shower it gets worse. I rarely use it more than 1 day before I need to take it off. Maybe your assistant can show me more tips when I come in.
Thanks for everything. Ruth
There are a few tricks to helping the Kinesio tape stay on your skin longer.
First, make sure you prep your skin with rubbing alcohol before applying the tape. This will reduce the amount of dirt and oil on your skin, which will allow the tape to adhere to your skin better. The same concept applies to hair. If necessary, shave the area before applying the tape.
In addition, once you apply the tape, make sure you rub it for up to one minute (or until the glue activates).
Lastly, refrain from showering, swimming, or participating in strenuous activity for at least 30 minutes after applying the tape. After showering, pat the tape dry with a towel instead of rubbing it. This will prevent the tape from curling/peeling off.
Hopefully these tips will solve your problem. Please let me know if you have additional questions or concerns.
