    As an elite masters cyclist with a degree in kinesiology, I am doubly convinced in the efficacy of SpiderTech's technology. I recently won the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious one-day races in California, for the fourth year in a row (and second year in a row in the jersey of California State Criterium Champion) using almost...

    The SpiderTech tape is amazing. It is super easy to use. Anyone can apply it and get the maximum benefit. It is a very simple process. Most importantly, however, the tape has done wonders for my shoulder, lower back, and posture. I crashed hard in Italy at the Giro d'Italia last July, and right now my shoulder is sitting 3/4...

    SpiderTech has been an integral part of my rehabilitation from an Achilles injury I sustained earlier this season. The calf and ankle pre-cut tape has allowed me to come back training quicker with the support and activation it provides to my problem area. I race with tape on my shin as it acts as a reminder to my body to...

Rapp suffered numerous broken bones including his clavicle and scapula, as well...
  6. New advances in musculoskeletal pain

    Bove SE, Flatters SJ, Inglis JJ, Mantyh PW. New advances in musculoskeletal pain. Brain Res Rev. 2009 Apr;60(1):187-201. Non-malignant musculoskeletal pain is the most common clinical symptom that causes patients to seek medical attention and is a major cause of disability in the world. Musculoskeletal pain can arise from a variety of common conditions including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, surgery...
  7. Towards a theory of chronic pain

    Apkarian AV, Baliki MN, Geha PY. Towards a theory of chronic pain. Prog Neurobiol. 2009 Feb;87(2):81-97. In this review, we integrate recent human and animal studies from the viewpoint of chronic pain. First, we briefly review the impact of chronic pain on society and address current pitfalls of its definition and clinical management. Second, we examine pain mechanisms via nociceptive...
  8. Clinical efficacy of kinesiology taping in reducing edema of the lower limbs in patients treated with the ilizarov method--preliminary report

    Białoszewski D, Woźniak W, Zarek S. Clinical efficacy of kinesiology taping in reducing edema of the lower limbs in patients treated with the ilizarov method--preliminary report. Ortop Traumatol Rehabil. 2009 Jan-Feb;11(1):46-54. INTRODUCTION: Postoperative edema of predominantly lymphatic origin is a significant hindrance to physiotherapy in patients subjected to limb lengthening by the Ilizarov method. New treatment methods are being sought...
  9. Pain perception in relation to emotional learning

    Apkarian AV. Pain perception in relation to emotional learning. Curr Opin Neurobiol. 2008 Aug;18(4):464-8. Noninvasive brain imaging has established the participation of the cortex in pain perception and identified a long list of brain structures involved. More recent studies show the interaction between clinical chronic pain conditions and the reorganization of the brain functionally, anatomically, and chemically. Mechanisms underlying this...
  10. Muscle pain: sensory implications and interaction with motor control

    Arendt-Nielsen L, Graven-Nielsen T. Muscle pain: sensory implications and interaction with motor control. Clin J Pain. 2008 May;24(4):291-8. Muscle hyperalgesia and referred pain plays an important role in chronic musculoskeletal pain. New knowledge on the involved basic mechanisms and better methods to assess muscle pain in the clinic are needed to revise and optimize the treatment regimes. Increased muscle sensitivity...
