Love this back ache guideline, "fonon fetching site" (Google it)! I was a bit unsure but used it yesterday and woke up with a more calm back. I actually advised this guide to my mom and dad because of the good results I came across. I was told that they cannot imagine how good maybe it was. It could solve your back problems very effectively..
Thanks for the video, John. You posted a similar video on 6th March 2012 with a slightly different taping pattern. Have you revised what you believe to be the ideal taping method, or is the method on this video (21 Feb 2014) specifically for pain on the sides of the pattella, where as the previous video was more for pain below the patella perhaps?
+Tate Barnum This is not taping for Mal-Tracking even though it would help control the patella to some degree but i do show a video on youtube for that particular issue using a different type of tape - called Leukotape (type of zinc oxide and has no stretch, as Rocktape has 180% stretch) and the technique is known as the 'McConnell technique'. Hope that helps, JG
+sabri uzeiroski The taping I show is to help reduce the pain but it does not actually treat the cause of the problem. When you find out why the knee pain is there then the pain will start to disappear with the correct treatment.
Hey john, what type of taping would you recommend for some slight popping in the vmo where it meets the kneecap. There isn't any pain when it happens just a little popping feeling in the muscle when I squat. Also, I feel some tightness the patella tendon under the knee cap. Never had any knee problems before.
Try the Leukotape and use it with a base layer called a micropore as this help control the patella position. Look at McConnel taping technique and you can buy the tape from Physique.co.uk but they call the tape Tiger Tan tape
This is interesting. It seems counter-intuitive to treat PF pain by loosening the tissue around the joint. Most of the techniques I've seen involve trying to reposition the patella so it tracks within the femoral groove better. One article I recently came across suggested that it wasn't even so much the direction of traction provided by the tape (lateral vs. medial) as it was the compression of the knee joint altogether, basically pushing the patella more deeply into the groove. Does the method in this video purport to allow the patella to move more freely, approximating the results of the more compression-oriented taping? For a runner with IT band syndrome that may be causing misalignment of the patella, would this help? I feel like a lot of the methods I come across are just based on "this seems to work okay" instead of really having any solid kinesiological foundation.
