One of the best ways to get rid of a troublesome bruise quickly is to put some kinesiology tape (e.g. K-Tape, RockTape, KT tape) over it.
When applied properly as shown in this video, the tape can help speed up the healing process. It should help decrease the spread, appearance, and tenderness of the bruise as well.
Give it a whirl and let me know how your bruises turn out!
I’ll be doing some follow up videos over the next couple of days to show you the progress of my bruise.
