SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--People diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis now have a new alternative for pain relief and proven effective control to this debilitating foot injury, called QUICK TAPE, created by a Seattle inventor and manufacturer, Support the Foot! The continuous, debilitating pain and discomfort that comes with the injury limits activities, competitive participation and performance. Millions of sufferers often deal with the pain for extended periods and sometimes results in a chronic condition in the affected foot.
QUICK TAPE has completed more than eighteen months of marketing and physician testing with outstanding results. QUICK TAPE is a 1-piece, adhesive, extended wear, foot strap featuring an easy to apply design. It duplicates and exceeds the physician preferred and accepted “Low Dye” taping method proven in over three decades of clinical use. QUICK TAPE lasts longer, is more effective for pain relief and has cure characteristics for a majority of patients. QUICK TAPE is being hailed as the new patented version of the historic and physician accepted “Low Dye” wrapping method. QUICK TAPE now makes traditional taping obsolete.
Developed to help those suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, QUICK TAPE is also a safe and effective method of managing other arch and chronic foot discomfort caused by:
- Low or High Arches
- Heel Pain
- Flat Feet
- Achilles Tendon Pain
- Foot Pronation
- Accessory Navicular
- Shin Splints
- Even sprained ankles
Athletes with Plantar Fasciitis often can’t perform daily routines, perform at peak levels if at all, and live with the pain interfering with their performance unless treated with the Low Dye or therapies that may include cortisone shots and/or surgery.
In most cases, the tested, proven and patented QUICK TAPE Strap will enable people to compete and return to workout or games immediately by supplying the foot with pain free movement, added support, realignment and protection from future flare ups.
How does it work?
First, the non stretch design of the QUICK TAPE strap custom fits to the shape of either foot, supporting and creating a natural arch while keeping the ball of the foot and the heel together during the actions of walking, running and jumping.
This is what supports the foot, easing tension off the fascia and arch, immediately relieving pain and discomfort.
By aligning and securing the foot in the proper place, the QUICK TAPE significantly or completely reduces foot pain, in addition to alleviating stress on your knees and hips.
In addition QUICK TAPE also helps prevent injury to the feet when participating in activities such as marathons, sports, heavy lifting or prolonged periods of standing.
The peel and stick straps are thin, breathable adhesive fabric so comfortable they can be worn for days, even while sleeping, showering, working and exercising – they manage your foot pain while you continue your day.
Developed by a Kent, Washington mother, Lori Coates, whose son as a young athlete continued to suffer from persistent Plantar Fasciitis, made it her mission to resolve her son’s foot problems that continually halted his participation in sports and normal physical activities. QUICK TAPE is now a patented foot support strap that’s an easy and effective option for relief and resolve of plantar fasciitis and other related chronic foot problems.
Coates said, “After years of experimentation cutting and taping we discovered the design that delivered continued relief for my son and decided to share the breakthrough with others. Anyone suffering from foot pain and plantar fasciitis knows the agony, but now there is a solution, it’s so rewarding to watch physicians across the country embrace our invention and even more invigorating, to see users excited and back in the game of normal walking or running. This has been a truly gratifying experience.”
Plantar Fasciitis is caused by environmental, lifestyle factors or the wear and tear of age and brings major discomfort. In most cases the QUICK TAPE strap can and will help provide necessary support and immediate relief. QUICK TAPE users can enjoy all the benefits of the Low Dye foot taping method, the accepted procedure by physicians worldwide for decades. With QUICK TAPE, the extra bonus is the elimination of time and supplies it takes to apply Low Dye taping methods in every setting. Lori Coates suggests, “See your Podiatrist, Orthopedic physician, Sports or Physical Therapist first for proper diagnosis.”
Quick Tape is now available at many Podiatrist’s Offices across the country.
