I tried doing the voodoo floss for my knee pain wrapping around just above the knee cap and just below the way Kelly shows. When I am squatting up and down with the bands on it pinches my skin and then the whole next day the back of my leg where the bands were is super tender and I cannot do another session until it heels. Any tips on stopping this? Thank you so much 🙂
Is the band wrapped tight enough?
I’d try wrapping it a little tighter if that doesn’t help try a little looser.
Are you overlapping the band 1/2 the width when wrapping?
Thank you I will have to try that 🙂 Thank you for the reply Kaitlin 🙂
also make sure that you wrap very precisely and that you overlap by half the width of the strip for each circle around. if you are messy and leave opportunity for openings to develop between the circles of wrap around your leg, it will squeeze skin between the strips and you’ll get red welts due to that as you move.
David, thank you that could be why I get that issue. I hate the feeling of things restricting around me (i.e. BP cuff, tourniquets, etc) and so I try to put the bands on as quickly as possible trying to overlap by 1/2 but I do them so quickly that I could be easily missing some. Also how do I know if I am putting them on tight enough or too tight?
over time, you’ll know when it is too tight and when it is too loose. it is going to be uncomfortable for sure. kstarr likes to say, pull the band by about 50% stretch as you wrap around.
Thank you so much David, that was some really helpful information. 🙂
