WHAT IS THERAPY TAPE?
Therapy tape is an elastic sports tape designed to relieve pain while supporting muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When the body sustains an injury through impact or wear and tear, lymphatic fluid builds up resulting in inflammation and swelling. The increased pressure on muscles and tissue from this accumulation of lymphatic fluid can cause significant discomfort or pain.
If applied correctly, therapy tape has the potential to lift the skin, decompress the layers of fascia, and allow for improved movement of lymphatic fluid. Consequently, more white blood cells are transported throughout the body to remove waste, cellular debris, and bacteria.
In addition, proper taping provides support to muscles by improving the muscles ability to contract. Therapy tape can even support weak muscles to avoid over-extension or over-contraction.
WHAT IS DOCTOR HOY’S® NATURAL PAIN RELIEF GEL?
Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel is a topical, water-based analgesic, which combines Arnica Montana, a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory, with camphor and time-release menthol. This powerful blend of cool and warm sensation provides deep comforting relief from painful muscles and joints, stiffness, backache, neck ache, arthritis, bursitis, sprains, strains, and bruises. Witch hazel draws the ingredients in while the timed-release menthol allows relief to last several hours.
THREE REASONS THERAPY TAPE AND DOCTOR HOY’S® NATURAL PAIN RELIEF GEL WORK TOGETHER
- Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel is a water-based product that will not interrupt the adhesive of therapy tape.
Typically, therapy tape is made of one hundred percent cotton fibers with a specialized elastic core. This allows for moisture release, providing comfort and durability for a longer period of time. Therapy tape is designed to withstand humidity, sweat, and showers for multiple days of use.
Thanks to this water-resistance, Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel can be effectively applied both under and on top of therapy tape.
- Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel absorbs quickly.
Layering the gel, allowing a few minutes between applications, will increase the strength of pain relief and promote longer lasting results. While the effects may vary based on tissue density and the amount of gel applied, most users experience 2-5 hours of pain relief. In this way, it is possible to customize the pain relief.
The ability to quickly absorb allows successful application of Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel before, during, and after therapy tape.
- Doctor Hoy's Natural Pain Relief Gel and therapy tape target the same problem.
The potential benefits of therapy tape include correcting the alignment of weak muscles and facilitating joint motion. Additionally, the tape lifts the skin and increases the space below it. This subsequently encourages blood flow and the circulation of lymphatic fluids, directly targeting the swelling and inflammation caused by injury.
Similarly, Doctor Hoy's Pain Relief Gel employs the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Arnica Montana, which stimulates increased blood circulation. This provides oxygen and nutrients to support healing, carry away waste, and fight swelling and inflammation.
Combining therapy tape with Doctor Hoy's Pain Relief Gel promotes faster healing.
