How to Tape Your Knee Cap for Patello Femoral Pain
Taping for Patello Femoral pain is not new and I’ve been using this very successfully since the mid Eighties (yes…over 25 years) First described by Jenny McConnell, we first thought that the taping was actually changing the Knee cap position (and it still “appears” like this when you tape it up correctly) ….what we feel is happening though, is what we call “proprioceptive”….that is the body uses the sensation of the tape on the skin as information…and the result of this information is that the muscles “fire” a little better and reduce the load on the knee cap as they do so….pretty clever stuff, and for some people…marked change in their knee cap pain very quickly.
It’s not the only treatment for knee cap pain we provide here….in fact we’ve developed a check list of nearly 30 items which we feel affects knee cap tracking, and we’ll assess all of these on your assessment.
