Knee pain like “jumpers knee” or “runners knee” can quickly hinder athletic performance as well as everyday activities. When strengthening, stretching and ice don’t do the trick, it may help to break out the TheraBand Kinesiology Tape. Taping the quadriceps for neurological support as well as a mechanical correction for the patellar tendon just might bring the pain relief you’ve been looking for and get you back out on the field, track or court.
Knee Kinesiology Taping Technique
This TheraBand Kinesiology Tape application is used for pain reduction as well as joint and muscle support for the thigh and knee for conditions such as quad strain, anterior knee pain, patella tendonitis or patellofemoral pain. Watch Dr. Greg Doerr’s step-by-step instructions and catch the clinical relevance of the method.
In our #TapeTuesday series, we will be sharing methods for different types of tape application, as well as the accompanying research to support it. We’ll talk about therapeutic and preventive taping, such as TheraBand Kinesiology Tape and Cramer Athletic Tape to name a few. Click here to see our other posts in the #TapeTuesday series!
