If you read yesterday's post, you will already know that I am suffering a flare-up of plantar faciitis. A very, very painful flare-up. During my lunch break yesterday, I went out and bought my first roll of KT Tape. As you can see, I got hot pink :) I want my tape to be pretty and girly - lol.
I wasn't sure how much it would help, or if I'd even get it on right, but with the pain I was in, I was ready to give anything a shot. I went on YouTube and checked out the great how-to videos from KT Tape.

I watched it twice, and then gave it a go. Here is my taped foot. I think I did quite well, and the video was easy to follow (thank you KT Tape).
Maybe I should have gotten the purple to match my shoes....hmmmm. Next purchase will be purple...or bright blue...soooo many cute colours to choose from!!
Within just a couple of hours, I couldn't believe the difference in the pain - it was almost gone. Yes, I was taking anti-inflammatories also, but I was before I applied the tape too. The KT Tape made it bearable to walk. I am so impressed!!!
When I woke up this morning, I had no pain when I got out of bed - yippee!!! Even sleeping with the tape on, plus a shower, it is still sticking strong. I am so happy that I tried the tape! I know that I need to do exercises for my plantar faciitis, and I need to get good support insoles, etc. KT Tape doesn't "cure" it, but it sure helped with pain relief.
