KT Tape is the sixth sponsor for the Platinum Sombrero 5K. The Memphis Tigers have been using KT Tape for years now and I have been very curious about it, so I am thrilled to get a sample to try. KT Tape will be providing a product sample to the first 50 people to register for the race. For those of you who don’t know what KT Tape is, it simply is an alternative to bulky braces, wraps, and pain meds. It is “…an alternative that’s used clinically, athlete tested, and used by millions of people world-wide. It’s called KT Tape. KT Tape is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and used to treat and prevent hundreds of common injuries such as knee pain, shin splints, and tennis elbow.” You can find more info by liking them on Facebook.
I’m sure that you have seen an athlete somewhere using KT Tape, especially if you watch basketball or the Olympics (think Kerri Walsh and beach volleyball). I didn’t even know the stuff was available to the public until recently, and now I’m thinking that maybe I could have incorporated it into my peroneal tendonitis rehab.
