Kinesio Tape

"What's that black thing on her shoulder?" I asked my husband while we were watching the Olympic volleyball games on TV. He didn't know, but in his internet resourcefulness, he was able to find out. Following is taken from a New York Times article about the use of Kinesio Tape by Olympic athletes.

Ms. Walsh was sporting a new type of athletic tape called Kinesio, touted by physical therapists as a better way to relieve pain and promote healing of injured muscles. Both the tape and the new wrapping technique have spread mostly by word-of-mouth among athletes and trainers who swear by it.
