Kinesio Tape seen in NCAA Hoops

If you haven't been watching, Kinesio Tape has been seen all over NCAA hoops this year. And by "all over," I actually mean I've seen it on just one player for the past couple of months. Regardless, this one player, just happens to be the 7ft 3in center for the UCONN Huskies, Hasheem Thabeet.

Thabeet, who has been hindered from a left shoulder injury for the majority of the season, has been sporting the black Kinesio Tape throughout Big East play. This year he is amongst the leaders for rebounds and blocks throughout the entired NCAA, and is getting some serious attention for the upcoming NBA draft. One of Thabeets most noteable skills is his ability to block shots with both hands, particularly with his left. And it just so happens, the Kinesio Tape is seen on his left shoulder, providing him stability throughout motion.

My past two posts have regarded Kinesio Tape, and its particular application to the shoulder. However, here at Rosa Family Chiropractic, we apply this tape to multiple joints and muscles throughout the body, and provide benefit for a variety of conditions.
