How Mobility Tape has helped me maintain a constant level of daily fitness and “Mom life” activity with minimal pain. By Rebecca Wilson-McCracken
My struggles began after my third pregnancy as I suffered with some pelvic pain and alignment issues. Physiotherapy enabled me to significantly regain my strength and manage the pain I was experiencing.
I am now postpartum with baby number four, and unfortunately it feels like I have regressed. I am in pain almost daily, sleeping is uncomfortable and I wake up sore, tired, and definitely unmotivated!
I was introduced to Mobility Tape’s therapeutic heated tape at a fitness event and I was immediately intrigued by its unique features of menthol and borneol. I ordered a roll and went on YouTube to find the best ways to tape my hips and lower back. I was instantly amazed at how simultaneously my flexibility had increased while the pain I was experiencing had decreased. I felt great!
I am seeing an osteopath to assist with the alignment and functionality of my whole body, however I continue to use my Mobility Tape, as a rehabilitation tool, between visits which allows me to reduce the pain and focus on the recovery. As the days progressed, I could really feel the results in the form of better sleep at night, and during the day, workouts at my traditional capacity.
What do I tape? I tape my back, and hips whenever I feel tight or sore making my daily activities more seamless, including training and caring for my four children. I am grateful to have found this amazing product, a great tool to aid in my daily mobility.
