Knee pain can be caused by any number of issues. The kneecap, or patella, could be moving incorrectly. One or more meniscus may be torn, ruptured, or inflamed. There may be arthritis, plica, chondromalacia, or any number of issues with the bones that constitute the knee. The beauty of taping your knee for stability and using kinesiology tape, sometimes called kinesio tape, is that it can help to address injury application and a breadth of conditions KT Knee Tape covers. The best tape for knee support provides relatively simple effects by balancing the muscles on the knee and relieving pressure on the kneecap and its tendon.
Knee issues arise from equally as many causes. Muscle imbalances, poor running form, misaligned hips or poor posture, poor nutrition, overtraining, compensation for another injury, hyperextension, arthritis, and blunt trauma to ligaments are just a few of the most common causes of knee pain. KT Tape can help reduce pain and inflammation for many common injuries*. Learn more about how to tape a knee with KT Tape and how to use knee tape for running or other sports.
