We use this effective kinesiotaping technique for relieving achilles tendon pain. Its a technique that will often allow active individuals to continue to run, and is also used effectively for relief of everyday achilles pain. This tape is ok to shower in and will often be supportive for 5 days or so. We find that this is comfortable to wear, supportive, pain-reliving and will reduce swelling. Try it, and integrate your achilles exercises from your physiotherapist or doctor.
