Knee Taping Helps OA

December 30, 2011

Knee Taping

Knee taping is used by physical therapists in conjunction with exercise programs to treat osteoarthritis.  It is a simple process that most patients can learn for themselves.  It involves grabbing the patella (knee cap) and pulling into a comfortable position.

In a recent study it was shown that patients were likely to experience a reduction in knee pain when their knees were taped as compared to a non-taped group of patients.  Even patients who did not experience knee cap pain reported that their knees felt better when taped.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
