PIN IT!I’m someone who likes to put off injuries until I can’t take the pain. I know, its terrible but I hate going to the doctor. The wait, the general diagnosis, and $300+ later, you’re out of there. So until I give in to the doctor route I always try to find alternate ways to manage the pain. I know of a lot of runners who like to use kinesiology tape but never thought about giving it a shot until now. I received a roll of Poetic Health’s Kinesiology Tape in exchange for an honest review and honestly it couldn’t be better timing.
I occasionally get this pain under my big toe on my right foot and its terribly painful! After some research I believe I keep experiencing Sesamoiditis which is common in runners. Sadly it takes 2-4 weeks to resolve on its own but there are some other options to try and help the healing process move along. Since I have the Warrior Dash and the Vegas Spartan Super coming up these next two weekends and I need some pain relief as soon as possible. This is where the all amazing Kinesiology tape comes into play. Just by wrapping my foot appropriately in Poetic Health’s tape, I immediately started feeling relief.
I am now a firm believer in K Tape now. It provided the right amount of pressure to ease the pain quickly and was seriously the easiest thing to do for a fraction of the cost it would take for a doctor’s visit. Poetic Health’s Kinesiology Tape was easy to use and super durable. I’ve been wearing the tape for a day now and there has been no budge in adhesiveness. I will also be putting it to the test at the Warrior Dash and can only imagine it will stay just as strong.
For a small and family focused company, they have done an amazing job at creating quality tape and I highly recommend them. So much so that I am holding a giveaway to win your very own roll of Poetic Health’s Kinesiology Tape. Just enter below!
