Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), which is also known as runner’s knee is a common injury among runners especially those who train predominantly on hard surfaces such as roads and pavements. The stress of running can cause irritation where the kneecap (patella) rests on the thighbone. This blog shows you how to use kinesiology tape and the correctional technique to realign the patella in the correct position and to hopefully reduce the pain associated with runner’s knee.

The main principle behind the correctional technique is to create a strong re-positioning of tissue and structures.

This tends to be achieved using 50% – 75% stretch on the tape.

With the correctional technique the tissue will be drawn towards the base.

Having completed the appropriate assessments make a choice of application.
