But I hurt my knee hill walking when I fell and twisted it.
Since then my knee has been very painful after walking 10 miles in particular when going downhill.
Having watched the video online, - I folded the tape - cut the corners off - stretched it to 80% and then let it go back to half (you will understand if you watch the video) but basically taped the knee using three strips.
(I did shave my leg first, as the thought of the hairs pulling was worse than the leg pain)
And I can't believe it.
Very steep downhills.
Not a twinge of pain.
So my review - worth its weight in gold.
Having had major knee problems most of my adult life, it's brilliant to find something that supports my knees, and can help my quads take the strain, as I still play 5-a-side.
As well as the support, its adherence to the skin is impressive. You can shower and it will remain stuck (I think following the instructions about rubbing the tape when first putting it on seems important in this respect). I haven't tried keeping the tape on for much more than 1 and a half days, but I can imagine that it would last the 3/4 days people claim.
I'm totally sold on this tape, and would highly recommend it.
I recently pulled my calf muscle whilst jogging and it's a recurring injury that I get quite often and it usually lays me up for weeks. Out of desperation, I thought I'd give KT tape a try, but I wasn't really expecting any results.
The tape is relatively easy to apply, but it's very important to follow the instructions to the letter to get the best results. I had to shave the back of my leg to ensure the tape stuck to my calf as any sign of hairs and the tape has no chance of sticking. Also, take your time when applying ensuring you don't touch the sticky side with your fingers and rub the tape down firmly to ensure it sticks.
With the leg prepared, I find the tape stays on for about 3 - 4 days and that includes showering twice a day.
First off, I though the tape was having no effect, but after 3 days of wearing, I noticed the pain in my calf reducing considerably.
After 6 days, my calf was good enough to start jogging again and after 10 days, I have no indication of any calf injury whatsoever and am back to running 7km 3 - 4 times a week.
Now, bearing in mind that before applying the tape, I could hardly put any weight on my injured leg and was limping badly and that this recurring injury usually puts me out of running for 6 - 8 weeks, the results really do seem to have been amazing!
I'm now a believer in KT tape and will definitely use it again on future injuries.
Ordered from here 2 before and service was great, genuine product and depending on your colour choice cheaper that Boots for same colour, Laser Blue £22.50 unless on offer so can be costly to use all the time, but given the results I get it worth the money.
I already owned some cheap tape (cost £1.53 per 5m roll) which seemed to be working ok, and is challenging to remove even after a week, but I wanted to try the "real" stuff, so ordered this at 10x the cost. For the same knee injury (MCL), this stuff is peeling and removed in 2 days, yet the cheap stuff lasts a week, and even then doesn't come off easily.
As for the support if offers it is great. I do a lot of running and use it on my knees and ankles and I have found that it has made a massive difference. I would not be without this tape now and if you have an niggles I strongly recommend this product.
