“Not only when training hard or going full gas in racing, also in simple daily routines, like taking my dog for a walk, SpiderTech is a huge help. My minor knee pain that is due to beat up hamstrings is gone thanks to the Upper Knee Spider. My dog is happy that I can still take him for a walk on the beautiful old city wall of Lucca, the “Mura”. SpiderTech is real-world drug free pain relief!”
“How exactly does SpiderTech tape work? If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this question, yes, I would be quite wealthy indeed. People desire a simple, easy-to-understand answer. We get it. Why should things be so complicated, right? Well, we have your answers, exactly how you want them: simple, straight forward and with no technical mumbo jumbo. There are several ways that SpiderTech delivers drug free pain relief. For example: You know when you have slammed your finger in the door? OUCH! Immediate onset of serious, shocking pain. What do you do? You grab that finger with your other hand and hold it in a tight and firm grip, meanwhile dancing erratically around like an angry bunny and screaming expletives. Well, SpiderTech works exactly this same way (take out the dancing part:-) but what is happening when you apply pressure to your injured finger is a sensory response, altering your sensation of pain! WOW, that is exactly what ibuprofen does, but with SpiderTech, you are not putting drugs in your system, potentially harming your liver and kidneys. BONUS! The tape provides enhanced sensory stimulation which essentially disrupts and diminishes signals of pain. What is revolutionary about this is the effect of the continuous stimulation provided by wearing SpiderTech on the skin may help to break the cycle of chronic pain. DOUBLE BONUS!”

Over the past few decades cheerleading has grown by leaps and bounds (literally). It was estimated in 2002 that there were 3.5 million cheerleaders in the U.S. As the number of participants continue to grow so does the risk of injury. As cheerleading evolved over the past few decades the routines have become more difficult. It is not uncommon to see high level gymnastic movements done by cheerleaders. According to a 2012 position policy and report from the American Academy of Pediatrics, cheerleading accounted for approximately 66 % of all catastrophic injuries suffered by high school girls over the past 25 years.
The most common mechanisms for injury are basing or spotting, tumbling and falls. Injuries to the lower extremity are the most common. These are followed by upper extremity, head and neck, and trunk injuries. The most common type of injuries are strains and sprains. The areas that I personally see the most are the lower back, knees and shoulders. This mostly occurs from constant overuse due to poor body mechanics during lifting and spotting, as well as muscular imbalances. To help remedy this situation, Kinesiology taping is done as an adjunct to other treatment therapies.
Spider Tech is a great adjunct to help reduce the stress placed on the cheerleader’s body from the rigors of training. It is not uncommon for a cheerleader to complain of more than one body part hurting. During the competitive season any down time can lead to a poor performance. To help get through the minor strains and sprains pre-cut SpiderTech applications are essential. They are easy to apply and they are great to take to competitions. It is not uncommon for an overuse injury to creep up right before a competition. In this scenario a complicated tape job for a parent or coach not trained in kinesiology taping would be out of the question. However, with the SpiderTech pre-cuts, support and healing to the area can be achieved with limited effort. SpiderTech pre-cuts are available at Walmart and other retailers near you, plus if you go to tryspidertech.com you can sign up for a mail in rebate to get your first pack free!
Old injuries, new injuries, the sensations that come of doing some new physical task: minor aches and pains affect all of us. We may get out of bed and feel soreness in our shoulders. We might spend two hours reading on our smart phones, and then our necks hurt. When the temperature shifts, we might feel it in our hips or our knees. At the office, people frequently complain about back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and wrist pain. Many people will look to their medicine cabinet to relieve these kinds of discomfort. They’ll take ibuprofen or aspirin, and feel glad that relief is coming.
The daily use of drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen has proven to have potentially serious side effects. This is why we should be using drug-free alternatives to over the counter pain pills. SpiderTech is exactly that: drug free pain relief of minor aches and pains.
The SpiderTech Universal X Spider provides targeted relief to the areas that are causing us pain. By simply sticking the X Spider to the areas that hurt, we can give ourselves powerful, long-lasting pain relief. The X Spider is pre-cut kinesiology tape which can easily be placed on any part of our bodies. Because it is made from cotton, it is flexible and breathable while providing pain relief for up to five days before needing to be changed. It is waterproof, so it can be worn in the bath, the shower and the pool.
Easy to apply, the SpiderTech Universal X Spider is a healthy and effective pain relief alternative to over-the-counter pain pills like ibuprofen and aspirin. While the X Spider provides targeted relief for back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and wrist pain, it can be placed anywhere on the body and have the same incredible effect.
SpiderTech can be found in the Pharmacy section at your local Walmart. To try it for free, please go to www.TrySpiderTech.com to register for a 100% mail-in rebate.
