Wellness Wednesday: How Dynamic Tape is healing my shin splints

Dynamic Tape is healing my shin splints

A few weeks ago I had stopped running my usual 2 mile daily run due to a nasty cold that went to my chest. It took almost 2 weeks to get rid of it before I was not too winded to run again. I started back on a Sunday afternoon on the same route and in my same shoes as usual. The next morning I could hardly get down the stairs. I had the worst pain in my shins! I have never had shin pain in my life so when the pain was still there Tuesday, I stupidly thought I just need to run again.

Like sore muscles, to keep exercising helps my sore body. Tuesday night I was in the worst pain yet!  Walking was so painful and I can take pain, but this was bad! I started asking around and was told they were shin splints. My first thought was will I be able to run again? With proper care and ease I can!  

I went out and spent a lot on an athletic tape to wrap my shins. I iced them, rested and did stretches. Then I was asked to review the Dynamic Athletic Tape-talk about perfect timing! I kept using this other tape I bought until my Dynamic Tape arrived. As I took it out of that packaging, I immediately felt the difference in this tape. What I was using was thick and a bit uncomfortable, Dynamic Tape was almost like a fabric and thin for comfort. Plus the designs were fun. My old stuff was boring! I switched to Dynamic Tape and will never go back to the old tape again!

WOW a very cool product helpful and stylish!! =D


Fun pattern instead of the same old boring solids! I've never used athletic tape but have read that so many runners swear by how much it helps.

I'm going to get some of this for my daughter. She uses tape for soccer and is going to love the designs!

I hope that your shin splints are healing and that you are feeling better. I hate getting those, they are the worst.

Doesn't hurt at all. Of course you get a better hold when skin is free of hair and lotions so if I had hairy legs, perhaps the sensation would be a tad different! lol It is a very gentle tape

Cynthia @ You Signed Up For What?!

Neat – I like the design! Shin splints are no fun – I have dealt with those before.

Very interesting. They are cute designs. If you're going to be tapped up it should be fun! Does it hurt to take off? Of course I hate ripping off band-aids, so what does that tell you. 😉
