KT Tape Advisory Board Clinician Taping Up Athletes at San Jose Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

Orem, UT – Sept. 27, 2010— For the second year in a row, runners at the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon can take advantage of a service at the Health and Fitness Expo offering free Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape (KT Tape) demonstrations and samples. KT Tape is the first-ever consumer brand of kinesiology tape. For years, elite marathoners have used kinesiology therapeutic tape for injury treatment, pain relief and performance, and now all runners can have access to that same level of support. Clinicians including KT Tape Medical Advisory Board Member Dr. Hal Rosenberg will offer free taping demonstrations and advice.  Dr. Rosenberg provides Sports Medicine for the US Half Marathon as well as a number of triathlons and cycling races around the nation. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Jan Jose Half Marathon is Sunday, October 3rd, with the Health and Fitness Expo October 1st 1pm-6pm and October 2nd 9am-5pm.  The Expo, free and open to the public, is at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center located at 150 W. San Carlos Street, San Jose, CA 95113. Because KT Tape is waterproof and can be worn for up to five days per application, Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon participants who stop by the KT Tape Booth at the Expo on Friday or Saturday can get taped up for Sunday! KT Tape is used by athletes to treat common sports injuries such as runner’s knee, shin splints, IT Band pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and quad or hamstring strain.  It is the only solution that will provide pain relief and support before, during, and after the race—without restricting motion.  At the Expo, the KT Tape team will be available to answer questions, demo product taping methods, and introduce San Jose Rock ‘n’ Rollers to this revolution in pain relief and performance enhancement.
