There are people under and overpaid in every occupation yet sports bears the brunt of many people’s anger. Far too many people romanticize sports and connect them to long lost memories of their youth. They want players to “play for the love” when in actuality it’s a business and making as much money as possible is the goal. It’s not a moral calling, it’s a job. It would be nice if people did more than add to the cacophony of voices that resent athletes for exactly what they would do in the same situation.
“Kinesiology tape is safe, effective and poses absolutely no risk for a positive drug test,” Dr. Forcum says. “Additionally, KT Tape allows for very specific targeting and fine-tuning with nearly immediate results. This can’t be achieved through oral medication. The tape application can help athletes move through a full and complete range of motion and aid their ability to balance and target. At the Olympic level there is such a fine margin in performance between an athlete watching a medal ceremony or standing on top of the podium. Kinesiology tape could provide this difference in performance in many circumstances.”
