Sharpei knee

Yesterday, I had another interesting PT session. This time she applied tape to my knee and suggested that I try to leave it on for 2 days. She mentioned that if it bothered me too much, it was okay to take it off.

It looked all wrinkly when it was taped. Hence the title of this post. Sexy huh?


The tape was limiting my motion. I had trouble with stairs, several of my exercises, putting on socks, etc. I don't know if that was intended or not (and will ask next time).

After about 25 hrs I liberated my knee from its sharpei-ness.

I'm thinking Sharpy knee will be more fun. Now just where did I leave my marker????

  12. Did you watch the Olympic Women's Beach Volleyball? Karry Walsh had some kind of special tape all over her shoulder to help her. I'm wondering if that kind of tape would work better.

  13. Huh? That seems like a very odd remedy, but I s'pose there are lots of things that seem really weird but work! My mom always says that duct tape will get rid of warts...never tried it, but for some reason I believe her :)

    I hope your knee heals up real fast! Good luck Lisa!

  14. Yes, it does look like a Sharpei! My daughter has one, and I'd say it resembled it quite closely! LOL! Have to wonder what the taping was about.

  15. Looks like a bit of overkill with the tape. Not fun! I don't think I would've lasted as long as you did.

  18. My 11 year old daughter has been dealing with knee issues with her knee and she had to be taped. She loved when her knee was all wrinkly. Hope you heal soon.
