kt tapeWhen I was at the 2014 Arnold Sports Festival, I decided to let two kinesiology taping companies tape up my elbow tendonitis to see what this stuff was all about – I’ve since decided to have the scientists from each of the companies I tried on the show to discuss this modality. Today we have Joe McCaleb, a renown kinesiology taper and physical therapist representing KT Tape. We discuss:
- How kinesiology tape works
- Client case studies for pain and performance
- Appropriate and inappropriate uses
- Theoretical advantages for bodybuilders, and much more!
Joe McCaleb is currently co-owner of Action Potential Physical therapy with numerous locations in Colorado and is also the only full time pro taper for the kinesiotape manufacturer KT Tape. If you’re like me you’ve probably been a little on the fence with kinesiotaping – you’ve seen people with their knees and elbows and thighs all taped up with these bright neon tapes and wondered what the heck is that stuff. Well at the Arnold Sports Festival I decided to let both KT Tape and Rock Tape tape up my elbows the afternoon before I went to do a workout involving a lot of triceps work. I must say it certainly quieted down my usual tendonitis to a degree. As I phase back into more serious training I might incorporate use of these tapes more, but before I do, I wanted to learn more right from the scientists who use this stuff in their everyday practice. I figured what better way than to learn right here on the show so we can all benefit. My guest’s bachelors and Master’s are in Athletic training and physical therapy and currently he’s currently pursuing advanced certification and fellowship in manual therapy.
