KT Tape Full Knee Support

Hi I'm Chris Harper and with me is Makayla, and we're here to demonstrate an application for full knee support. You can use this application for patella tracking problems, tendon issues, instability, or general knee pain some causes may include over use, muscle imbalances causing patella tracking problems, or other softtissue injuries such as ligament or minuscule tears KT Tape helps by providing stability, relieving pressure, and improving muscle function for this application we're going to position this knee

in ninety degrees, and we're going to take our first piece of tape, a full strip, and we're going to fold that in half We'll take a pair of scissors and we're going to cut rounded corners around the folded end of the tape what rounding the corners does is to help prevent any catching of the tape on clothing and peeling the tape off prematurely. We're going to twist and tear the backing paper right in the middle of that piece, being careful not to touch the adhesive of the tape

handling it with the paper only we're going to place this with eighty percent stretch, so were going to stretch that all the way and then back that off just a little bit for eighty percent and lay that down, but the very ends of the tape you're going to lay down with absolutely zero stretch so absolutely zero stretch on the ends we're going to take our second piece that we created from that first full strip

peeling that paper back just like the first piece, we're going to apply nice even pressure to eighty percent going just above and over that first piece again we're going to lay those tails down with zero stretch looks good, we're going to take our next piece we're going to twist and tear the paper down by the logo end of the tape to create an anchor point

we're going to measure this from just below the knee cap, aroundthe kneecap, and lay that anchor point up on the quadracep muscle up on the thigh muscle. we're going to remove the paper backing and we're going to apply this with twenty five percent stretch, so if you stretch that all the way and back that off half, and then half again you're going to trace the outer edge of that kneecap with the edge of that tape

as you wrap down around the front of the knee, you are now going to apply fifty percent stretch and then the last bit of tape we are going to lay down with absolutely zero stretch Okay, one more piece we're going to twist and tear thre backing paper down by the logo to create an anchor
