Day 29
Six Sentence Story
In this day of Micro-blogging - brevity is a skill worth honing. Can you tell a story and make it short and sweet? What can you say in six sentences.

This weekend I learned some fabulous taping techniques that I can't wait to use! Initially I thought the course would be great to help me learn to heal myself from injury, but after class I can see the many many many applications. I'm excited about using it on my neuro patients, as well as orthopedic patients and seeing the changes it can provide. I never thought a piece of elastic tape could have so many different healing properties depending on the way it is applied. My coworker and I are already brainstorming some research to conduct (trials or case study) to help build the research base. I am a new believer in the powers of Kinesiotaping!

Have you ever gotten taped for an injury?

I actually just tried taping myself today. My PT showed me how to do it last week and today was my first time on my own. I think the tape helps (even if I don't fully understand how) but I'm still nervous that I'm not putting it on right. It's neat that you got to take a course on taping!

I agree with Lisa - I know this stuff has worked for my Itband, but I just can't seem to tape it properly by myself!
