Rock Tape/K Tape Experience?

Post by lasalle » Sat Oct 26, 2013 4:16 am

My chiro taped up my hip/IT band today. I've never tried this stuff before-in fact I've always laughed at the Crossfitters who mummify themselves in Rock Tape. But after 12 hours it feels pretty damn good.

Is this stuff legit? Has anyone tried it-how often do you use it? TIA

I've used it for some shoulder bullshit about a year ago. Taped up my shoulder once or twice a day depending on how damn sweaty I got and how long it held its support. Used it for about a week. It seemed to help some at first but I didn't think it was anything special and after the first 2 days it didn't seem to do a damn thing. I used the rest of the tape on my hockey stick.

I used to help the people at KT Tape tape people up during running expos and before races. They'd give me a free case of tape for my volunteer time.

I still have them.

I've tried it a bunch of times. Once I taped my foot up before heading out for a 10 mi walk. I felt no pain and was in surprisingly good shape by the end of it. It worked well enough that I still remember it. Other times I've used it have been hit or miss, mostly miss.

It might be worth the $20 bucks or so to get yourself a roll and see if you like it. God know's I've spent more money on shit that was completely worthless, what's another couple of bucks.
