  • Study Finds SpiderTech Shoulder Spider Provides The Same Level Of Pain Relief As Non-Prescription Pain Killers

    Subacromial impingement (SAI) is one of the most frequently diagnosed shoulder conditions in adults with shoulder pain, and is associated with defects in posture, proprioception and motor coordination of the rotator cuff, deltoid, and the peri-scapular muscles. In addition to physiotherapy, many clinicians will prescribe adjuvant treatment in the form of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) with the intention of reducing shoulder pain often attributable to tendon inflammation and/or bursitis.  Pain reduction methods can reduce barriers for patients to actively participate in their rehabilitative exercise program.  The use of kinesiology tape has become an increasingly popular treatment aimed at reducing musculoskeletal pain without the added potential complications inherent with the use of NSAIDs.

  • Use Body Tape as Part of Your Health and Fitness Plan

    Getting into shape requires careful planning and preparation. Some people make the mistake of jumping in full steam, only to be burned out after a few weeks. This is why so many people fail to keep their New Year’s resolution to improve the health and fitness every year. A much better approach is to start small, and gradually work towards your ultimate health and fitness goals. Because your body is not in shape, it is highly recommended you use body tape as part of your health and fitness plan, to protect against injury.

    Tips for Setting Attainable Health and Fitness Goals

    1. Create small milestones with your key goal. For instance, if your goal is to lose 50 pounds, it can be rather overwhelming to reach this goal in a short period of time. Instead, create milestones to lose two to three pounds a week, as this is healthier for your body than crash dieting.
    2. Include exercise as part of any weight loss plan. Exercise helps burn calories and builds muscle tissue. What many people do not know is, if they simply diet and do not exercise, instead of losing fat, they are instead losing muscle mass.
    3. Remember to protect muscle groups with body tape. Kinetic sports tape is designed to provide support to muscle groups and prevent overextending the muscles, which decreases the risk of potential injury.
    4. Join a support group or hire a personal trainer. Support groups and personal trainers are excellent options to help keep you motivated and on track to reaching your milestones and final objectives.

  • Alleviate Joint Pain by Using Body Tape

    If you suffer from arthritis or have an injury where you have constant joint pain, one thing you can do is use body tape to help reduce your suffering. There are several different types of taping products on the market today. You want to make sure you choose the right one that will deliver the results you seek. Keep in mind there are both short term and long term wearing options, depending upon the product you select.

    For example, if you use regular sports athletic tape on the affected area, it helps compress the joint and may bring short term relief. However, it is not designed to be worn for a long period of time. Further, this type of tape does not allow the skin to breath, so sweat gets trapped under the tape. In addition, you normally need assistance when applying the tape, to ensure it is securely attached to the body.

    On the other hand, kinesiology elastic therapeutic body tape is better suited for treating joint pain from arthritis and sports injuries. Once attached and in place, it can be worn for up to five days before it has to be changed. The tape allows the skin to breathe so you do not have to worry about sweat being trapped underneath it. This kind of taping product is also waterproof, so it is okay if it gets wet. To learn more about the benefits of kinesiology taping, browse our website or contact us directly for further assistance in selecting the right products.

  • Body Tape for Athletes Protects Your Muscles from Injury

    Protecting your muscles from injury is important when you participate in sports on a regular basis. If you were to accidently tear a hamstring or pull another muscle, it could be the difference between missing a few games and being benched for the rest of the season. One way to help protect your muscles from damage is by using body tape for athletes.

    This special type of tape is designed to increase the strength and support of the area where it is applied. Because of the additional support, your muscles are less likely to be injured. Each area of the body can require a different cut and shape in order to provide maximum support.

    While you can obtain rolls of tape and cut each section yourself, there is a much easier way to ensure you get the right cut every single time by using our pre-cut body tape for athletes. Using SpiderTech not only makes it faster and easier to apply the tape to your body, but also eliminates waste common with rolled products. By following the included instructions, it takes a fraction of the time to get ready for the game.

    SpiderTech products are used by athletes in all types of sports, including tennis, cycling, snowboarding, skiing, football, basketball, baseball, lacrosse and the Olympics. Our body tape allows them to perform their best while protecting against injury. For more information about our products, visit our website today, or contact us directly.
