Helped my injured Knee!

I was recently on a boat charter trip with friends in the Caribbean.  Toward the end of the trip, I stepped down onto a wet cushion and my foot went right out from under me, resulting in an injury to my knee.  I was wishing I had some KT tape to tape my knee to provide support for my knee, but I did not — however, one of my friends DID have QuickTape with her and we decided to see if it would work.  We applied the “bottom of the foot” portion just below my knee cap and wrapped it around the sides of my leg.  Then we used the “back of the foot” straps (heel tabs) to pull up and around my knee that provided stability and support.  Guess what?  IT WORKED!  I was able to finish the boat trip relatively pain free!  Thank you, QuickTape!
