RUNNERS KNEE K TAPING GUIDE


FOLLOW THIS K TAPING APPLICATION FOR RUNNERS KNEE

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

  • Measure the tape from mid quad to just below the knee
  • Cut the tape into a Y STRIP (you could also use 2 x I STRIP's)
  • Lay the base of the Y STRIP at mid quad.
  • Bend the knee and lay the tails around the patella with 25% stretch.

STEP 2

  • Repeat step 1, starting from the top of the shin, wrapping the patella with both tails again.

STEP 3

  • Cut a short I STRIP and tear the backing paper to remove the central section.
  • Lay the tape down underneath the patella aiming upwards using a stretch technique.
  • As you lay down the tape, bend the knee and lay the tails down with 0% stretch.
  • Wait 30 mins before exercise.
