    ideally 6-8 weeks, but I tend to stretch after 4 weeks or so if it feels comfortable. If it hurts then it's probably not a good idea to carry on. I've made the mistake before and lost 4mm.

    If you use the taping method then It's better as it is a gradual increase and you can do that almost constantly. as long as you don't tape up a mm every week. keep it to one wrap every two days and it should be more than happy to go up.
