INNER/OUTER KNEE K TAPING GUIDE


FOLLOW THIS K TAPING APPLICATION FOR MCL/LCL

All you need is a sharp pair of scissors, clean skin and 2 minutes of your time. Then watch and follow the video above (summary below). Remember to seek medical advice first and whether you're a seasoned taping pro or a first time taper, always fully assess before applying.

STEP 1

  • Place your knee in moderate flexion (we found sitting as the easiest position for this)
  • Measure the tape along the length of MCL or LCL
  • Cut 2 I STRIP's and rip the end of the backing paper at both ends

STEP 2

  • Remove the centre peice of backing paper to reveal the tape.

  • Stretch the tape and lay it down over MCL/LCL with 50% stretch

  • Lay the ends of the tape down with 0% stretch to prevent recoil

STEP 3

  • Repeat with a second I STRIP to create an X over the specific site of pain
  • A third strip can be used to create a star shape if needed
  • The same application can be used on either medical or lateral knee
