Simon Hall, physiotherapist at Zone 34 sport’s physiotherapy and the Sydney Kings, demonstrating how to tape for a Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) knee injury.
This technique is typically used to provide additional stability to the knee when returning to activity following MCL sprain.
For time reasons this video shows the minimum amount of tape we would recommend. Most athletes prefer additional criss cross pieces. Heavier and stronger athletes require more tape.
If you experience skin reactions to tape, be sure to apply the hypoallergenic tape (such as Fixomul mentioned in the video) liberally, so that the brown tape does not touch your skin.
If the tape starts to feel itchy remove it as soon as possible.
If you have had a new injury please seek assessment from a sports physiotherapist, physical therapist or doctor.
