I already posted that my first visit to ART, while productive, was indeed painful. I was so pleased to see that my next visit (yesterday) wasn’t nearly as bad! My calf and ankle have definitely improved, though I still have more to be done and some healing up to do.
Check out my pretty bruise after 2 ART treatments. I’ve got a nice one on my ankle too.
Yesterday my doctor asked if I had any objection to kinesio tape to help everything heal and support the ankle/calf while they do. Heck, why would I? Apparently some people don’t want visible tape on their bodies. HA! I went straight to the farmers market with mine, followed by a 3-hour walk-play-dinner outing with the dogs.
Specifically he asked me to test out Rock Tape, a new brand they just got in that is designed for athletes. Next week I will try regular kinesio tape and give him feedback on how they felt different.
I got the generic brand-logo tape (yes, Jen Harrison, I DID ask if they had hot pink tape and they do) this time, but next time I’m telling him I want the cow print!
Since I am the master of color coordination, I even managed to pair my leg tape with the appropriate swimsuit at masters this morning.
If you can’t have a little fun with it, why do it, right?
