Goodbye Running Injuries—Aloha, KT Tape!

Orem, UT – Dec. 7, 2010— Don’t let months of hard work be wasted due to common training injuries, muscle soreness, or joint instability—the KT Tape Team is coming to town!  This weekend, KT Tape will offer free Kinesiology Therapeutic Taping demonstrations and samples for competitors at the Honolulu Marathon Expo. The KT Tape Team will answer questions, demonstrate taping methods, and introduce this revolution in pain relief and performance enhancement to the runners of Hawaii. KT Tape uniquely empowers athletes coping with injuries by providing pain relief and support before, during, and after the race—without restricting motion.  KT Tape applications commonly help to treat sports injuries such as runner’s knee, shin splints, IT band pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, quad or hamstring strains, and many more. For years, elite athletes and clinicians have used kinesiology therapeutic tape for injury treatment, pain relief, and performance. KT Tape is the first-ever consumer brand of kinesiology tape.  Now KT Tape enables all runners to access professional-quality support—with easy-to-use instructions, including 45 online videos available at www.kttape.com/instructions. The top choice of runners, KT Tape has been present at every major marathon in the United States this year and is currently available in more than 2,500 retail locations nationwide, including more than 50% of the top 50 specialty running shops.  The KT Tape Team along with local clinicians will be at the KT Tape booth at the Marathon Expo to offer free taping demonstrations and advice to athletes.  Members of the KT Tape Team will also be available for media interviews via appointment at the Expo. If you are interested in setting up an appointment please contact Amy at amy@outsidemedia.com.
