Simon Hall, Zone 34 and Sydney Kings physiotherapist, demonstrating a taping technique to reduce symptoms related to anterior knee pain.
This diamond technique does not restrict knee range of motion as much as alternative patellofemoral joint (PFJ) taping techniques, making it suitable for playing basketball, sport and working out in the gym.
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 you develop a reactoin remove the tape immediately. For any new injuries or ongoing pain, please see a Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist, Sports Physician, or suitably qualified health professional for a diagnosis and a management plan.
Taping techniques can be useful for symptom management, but should be seen as an adjunct to a thorough rehabilitation plan.
