KT Tape for Joint Pain

Who here struggles with chronic pain, particularly joint pain? I’ve been struggling with this for years. I try to not take NSAIDs due to drug interactions and other issues, but sometimes I just have to. Something that I’ve found to be a helpful alternative however is KT or kinesiology tape. My knees are currently pretty unstable, so I’m using KT tape currently to help provide support and pain relief. This is just one of the many tools in my toolbox to deal with chronic joint pain. If you have an injury, it’s also really important to RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevate). Anyway, hope this helps someone. If you all have any other ideas on how to deal with chronic pain, I’d love to hear them! Be Well :) #ChronicPain #LymeDisease #ITBand #Patellartendonitis #KTtape


Can’t remember the last time I woke up without pain #ChronicPain #CheckInWithMe

I’m so tired. I’m not good with pain anyways!! My sister got a tattoo on her rib cage and said it was nbd. I’ve had several and I keep forgetting how painful they are. Back of a hip, shoulder cap, between the breasts (hurt ssooooo much) and trapeziums? #Tattoos

Now I hurt regularly other places because of the tight effin connective tissue and how I’ve been compensating for my #RangeOfMotion #RunnersKnee #ITBand I don’t run 😭😣 hurts to do anything, hurts to do nothing. The cracking and popping of joints grosses people out, but it’s one minor, brief relief for otherwise incessant pain.

Taking so many nsaids. I’ve had a #Kidneystone (Now Eating better usually 👍) this isn’t helping my #Anxiety and #Depression
