Apply Running Tape before Starting Your Run to Prevent Injury
Prior to heading out on your morning run, it is worth your time to follow some useful tips, as these may help prevent injuring your body. First, apply running tape to different areas of your body, such as your ankles, calves, knees, groin, hip, hamstring, lower back, shoulder, neck, or other areas that tend to get sore or tender, or that you have injured in the past. Next, remember to warm up your body before heading out. Warming up involves stretching the muscles and loosening them up. Taking the time to do this makes the muscles more responsive once you start running.
Different Taping Methods to Apply Running Tape
There are different taping methods you can use to apply running tape. You could get a roll of tape, cut sections off of the roll, and apply those to the areas of your body you want taped. However, it is difficult to achieve the same results every time you tape your body because you may cut each section a different length. You also have to consider the amount of time it takes to cut and tape.
Wouldn’t it be simpler, easier, and faster if there was a way to have all of your tape pre-cut for each specific area of your body? Well, you can get pre-cut tape when you look at SpiderTech products. They are easy to apply by following the included instructions, and they involve removing the coated paper from the adhesive backing before applying it to your body. In addition, the tape is waterproof and may be worn for up to five days before it needs to be changed.
Ankle Taping Is Beneficial for Both Preventing and Treating Injuries
There are benefits to ankle taping. It can be used to prevent injuries because it provides added support and strength to the muscles in this area of the body. It is well suited for athletes, runners, joggers, walkers, and those with weak ankles. Another great use for this tape is for people who have to be on their feet for long periods of time, like waitress, waiters, hosts, concert ushers, and other such jobs.
If you have already sustained an ankle injury, taping helps provide added support to the area and increases the rate of healing. This is partially due to the fact the tape also helps stimulate the muscle response, which is needed in order for the muscle to get better. It helps prevent further injury to your foot and ankle area. Other beneficial uses for ankle tape include helping people who suffer from shin splints, ankle sprains, and ankle instability, as well as improving athletic performance, and post-operative rehabilitation.
When selecting ankle tape, make sure you choose a product that is latex free, water proof, and has an adhesive back, like SpiderTech tapes. SpiderTech ankle products are designed to help improve your performance and reduce the likelihood of receiving a muscle related injury. For treating injuries, the tape decreases minor pain and enhances support while still allowing you to move freely. It helps restore normal muscle response and provides added protection as your body is healing.
