I was recently introduced to MuscleAidTape by Andrew Kim. I met him at a swim event in June 2013 and he gave me a few roles of tape to try on my patients and athletes. I was skeptical because I had used every type of tape on the market and found that they all have their flaws. I was pleasantly surprised to find that MuscleAidTape is far superior to all the other tapes out there. It sticks better and lasts longer than comparable tape. It stays in place longer through sweaty workouts and showers. MuscleAidTape proved most effective on my Olympic Champion swimmer who is in the water for more than 4 hours a day! The tape is also gentle on the skin and doesn’t show any signs of irritation after prolonged wear. I use it to help reduce pain, inhibit or facilitate muscle contractions, and to decrease inflammation.

I have been a volleyball athlete for 17 years, playing in college and professionally. I have used many different treatment methods for injury recovery, but have never had such immediate recovery than with MuscleAidTape. I injured my shoulder recently with some pulled ligaments. For recovery, I iced, heated, and stretched. The rehabilitation process took roughly 10 days to feel better. I then re-injured the same shoulder and decided to use MuscleAidTape for treatment. I left the tape on for 4 days and went about my normal business. It felt like my ligaments were more stable during that time and that there was an increased flow of blood to the injured area. It only took four days for my shoulder to feel as good as it did after 10 days of the other treatments. I was very happy with the outcome and will use MuscleAidTape from now on.

I injured my shoulder playing tennis two months ago. I tried to rest it as much as I could and avoided serves and two-handed backhands. Ice packs and Aleve helped it improve slowly, but with setbacks after even casual practices. Three days ago, I set up for a backyard pool party and foolishly lifted folding tables and patio furniture. Later that night and ever since, my shoulder was in extreme pain. Even with Aleve I had difficulty sleeping, unable to find a comfortable position. During the day, I winced each time I lifted my right arm and found myself having to use my left hand more and more for everyday things. Putting on the seatbelt was a tender manuever. Earlier today, a trainer applied MuscleAidTape to my shoulder. There was an immediate sense of support and slightly reduced pain. Over the next several hours, there was a dramatic improvement in pain and comfortable range of motion. What came to mind was that how my shoulder felt today was how I was expecting it to feel in about two days from now. Being a physician (ophthalmologist), I had a healthy dose of skepticism as to the effectiveness of MuscleAidTape. Having experienced a minor miracle first-hand, now I am glad that this simple, effective, and risk-free therapy is available.
