Kinesio Tape Working for Local Marathon Runner

A patient presented having suffered chronic knee pain for several years, having to wear braces on both of her knees in order to run. After applying Kinesio Tape at Trusted Care Chiropractic in Atchison, she was able to run Warrior Dash and a marathon the following weekend without braces AND without pain. She just recently completed the Hospital Hill Marathon and had this to say:


“I ran hospital hill with my best time ever! 2 hours and 17 minutes! About two months ago I started having horrible knee pain. It was so bad that I went to the doctor who told me I would not be able to run hills because that aggravated my knee. Running wasn’t the problem but I was told hills were not a good idea. I went to Melinda for a shot in the dark with KT tape. She wrapped me for warrior dash and I was amazed I had no pain! I ran 3 miles the next day on hills to see if it was just a coincidence and still no pain! She wrapped me with RockTape for my full 26.2 Marathon in Lincoln and it worked. Less than a month later I ran hospital hill with this snazzy blue argyle print RockTape and was able to do what I thought was going to be almost impossible for me again. I also wear it when I do crossfit like workouts at Kôr Gym which allows me to do all the moves I want to be able to handle! Thanks Melinda!”
