Matthew has been taped for almost a full week now. We had the tape changed on Friday and I am trying not to get too excited, but I think his foot looks good taped. He is still supinated a bit, but nothing like it does without the tape. Without the tape, it looks awful.
Matthew says his foot feels good taped too. He says it feels like his other foot. That can't be a bad thing, right?
And, when stretching him, I think he feels looser. But then again, I am just wishing for that and could be fooling myself.
Steve told me that by the time he is about 10 or 11 yrs old, he will be able to train himself to walk more on the inside of his foot and keep the position better himself. I said "oh good! Only three more years of taping his foot!" Steve just laughed at me.
We are getting a tape change today, then Wednesday (plus physio), then Friday. Then we are off to St. Louis Sunday and he sees Dr. Dobbs on Monday.
I am very curious now to see what Dr. Dobbs says about kinesio taping.
