    Can't get kinesio tape to stick

    I received my Kinesio Tape in a few days ago. Im using it for my plantar fasciitis, so it starts at my foot and goes up to my calf. The problem is that it is not sticking very well. After a few hours it begins to come off, even though I rubbed it for heat for a good minute in sections to make...

    Swollen inside of feet

    For the past two months or so I have had a swollen area on both of my feet in the exact same spot. Its on the inside of the foot, behind the arch (closer to the heal). The swelling puffs out like a knot. I have plantar fasciitis in my left foot and have very flat feet. They both usually hurt...

    Question concerning 2.3s

    I really wanted to get the CB2.3s. The problem is I have plantar fasciitis and a very flat foot. When I was trying them on, the person helping me said that you could tell that the shoe didn't have enough arch support for me just from the way my foot sat in the shoe. If i bought these shoes...

    Crisp and durable hybrid?

    I recently switched to a hybrid with Alu Power in the mains and Prince synthetic in the crosses (both strung at 56). I chose this set up because i do not like the trampoline feeling of a full bed of Alu power after a few hours. The problem is that instead of having the trampoline feel, it now...

    Switching from k95

    The past year with the k95 has been very shaky for me. Im not a very big person, and the weight and stiffness of the k95 have given me constant trouble(especially on my serve). The reason i went with a racket so heavy is because i love the stabiliy. Im looking for a new racket that plays...

    Define the word "choke"

    I see lots of people using this word for both atp and wta matches. Sometimes I feel like I'm watching different matches from people here. Example 1: Players A&B When player A(who is a better player) is playing poorly the whole match, then suddenly finds his/her form when they are points...

    What does stringing higher REALLY mean?

    People string their rackets from the lower 30s all the way to into the 70s, but what does it really mean? Everyone says that stringing higher gives you a little more control, but players like Federer and Nadal who we all know have more control over the ball string their rackets pretty low...
