Which muscle injuries are suitable for using muscle athletic grip tape?

Who is suitable for using the muscle patch

Tibial pain syndrome is suitable for the use of muscle athletic grip tape

When the muscles in front of the shinbone are overloaded, causing inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bones and pain, runners can apply a muscle patch from the bottom of the outside of the knee to the bottom of the big toe, and then across the width of the shinbone along the pain point.

Second, knee pain also applies

Knee pain is one of the most common problems for runners, as Wickham recommends, attach two muscle athletic grip tape to the quadriceps, then down the left and right sides of the kneecap in a teardrop shape, then place one The muscle patch “crosses” the other two under the kneecap.

The third is plantar fasciitis

Runners experience pain in their heels when the connective tissue from heel to toe is overloaded.

Wickham recommends sticking one muscle stick from the bottom of the foot to the heel, and the other sticking from the arch up and crossing the first muscle stick.

Fourth, muscle patch can also be used for Achilles tendon pain

General Achilles tendon pain, if not caused by tearing, is mostly caused by overwork, so runners can use a muscle athletic grip tape to apply a strip of athletic grip tape to the bottom of the foot starting from the middle of the calf, and then stick one across the heel and the back of the ankle.

The last is general muscle pain

If a runner feels sore but needs more muscle support, then either use two sticks or cut one stick into a Y shape and wrap it around the sore area.

How to use muscle patch to improve running ability

In addition to using muscle stickers to relieve body pain, in the absence of pain, rational use of muscle stickers can indeed improve a runner’s performance to a certain extent.

The first is to stick to the front thigh muscles to support the quadriceps

Step 1: Bend the knee and measure the length of the required athletic grip tape, from the bulge of the lower edge of the patella to 2/3 of the thigh.

Step 2: First, fix a length of tape on the bulge of the lower edge of the patella, pull the tape tightly (you can feel the tape is stretched), and follow the muscles on the front of the thigh (slightly depressed on the outer side of the thigh) Paste from bottom to top.

Step 3: Finally, leave a patch of length to fix it on the thigh, on the left and right sides, and finally it will show a Y shape.

The second is to stick to the muscles of the back of the thigh to promote the mobility of the back of the thigh.

Step 1: Bend the knee and measure the desired length of the athletic grip tape, from the top of the knee to the bottom of the hip.

Step 2: First fix a patch on the upper edge of the knee, pull the athletic grip tape tightly, and stick it from bottom to top along the back of the thigh muscle (the most protruding place).

Step 3: Finally, leave a length of the athletic grip tape to be fixed under the buttocks, and the same is true for the left and right sides.

The third is to stick around the knee to stabilize the knee.

Step 1: Sit and bend your knees slightly, find the depressions on both sides of the outer edge of the knees, place the cloth flat on the depressions on the left and right sides, and measure the required length.

Step 2: Fix one end of the athletic grip tape on the outside of the knee, slightly elongate the patch, fit it laterally along the lower edge of the knee, and fix the other end of the patch in the depression on the inner side of the outer edge of the knee.

The fourth is to stick it on the calf to prevent strain

Step 1: In a standing position, measure from the heel up to the length of the lower edge of the knee socket.

Step 2: Fix a patch of cloth on the heel, from the heel to the calf, and stick it on both sides of the calf, and finally fix it in the knee socket.

Of course, pay attention to some principles of using muscle stickers – first, use alcohol to clean the skin surface before use.

If there is too much leg hair, it is recommended to scrape it off first, so as not to affect the stickiness of the sticker; if there is a wound, avoid direct contact with the sticker. Paste it on the affected area.

The second is that you can still take a bath with the sticker attached, and you can use a towel to dry it after bathing.

Finally, the starting and ending ends of the fixed athletic grip tape do not need tension. After sticking, it needs to be rubbed back and forth, so that the adhesive will melt and stick to the skin evenly.
