I incurred a grade 2 muscle strain of the calf muscle (gastrocnemius) from interval sprint training. I was limping due to a sharp pain when walking. The pain would not completely heal for over a two week period. I tried resting, protein diet, and mild stretching. Nothing would make the pain go away. I was skeptical at first, but decided to give MuscleAidTape a try. I placed one long strip down the center from the upper part of the calf muscle near the back of the knee, down past the Soleus just before the Achilles tendon. Then I placed shorter strips on each side of the long strip. I made sure the tape was really stretched. I did not notice anything right away, but that night, I was able to sleep without feeling too much muscle ache. The next day, unbelievably, I was able to walk with much less sharp pain in my calves. Within the next couple of days, the pain began subsiding gradually. After a couple of days, I was able to begin jogging again without any discomfort. I would have never believed that a tape without any medication could make my calf muscle better. I would have never believed this tape would work if I did not feel it work for myself.
