Thanks for the video.
I damaged my meniscus playing squash and there there is also some damage to my MCL. I'm going to give this a shot simply because I have some kinesiology tape on hand but my question is will this help with the meniscus issue or just the MCL? The damage to the meniscus is also medial. I am also seeing a physio and will be looking at this as supplementary to her excellent treatment.
I fell on ice recently. Mri shows numerous things..DR says no surgery? confused. ACL tear PACL tear. MCL disruption, mild Patellar subluxation laterally. I had bruising from inner thigh to ankle..huge football sized bruis inner knee . I twisted my leg under and back when I fell..I thought I saw my kneecap slide over and back. so confused at what my course shoukd be. This happened Jan 5. 2017
John Gibbons Ty for getting back to me. Also, tore my vastus medial is. This all happened on Jan 5. I have a large swelling to right inner knee still and my whole thigh is bigger than the left. I cant bend the knee back much but straightening is fine. I feel crepitus with my hand placed on knee cap when I do try to bend. Dr has me doing PT for a month only. Knee is stiff and wondering if I have fluid, a hematoma, and or muscle scaring ..firm hard area right next to the side of r knee
If the MRI shows a Full thickness tear of the ACL then surgery is generally recommended, otherwise the knee would be relatively unstable most of the time and will lead on to early degenerative changes, that would be the normal process where i am based in Oxford but it will be the Doctor / Surgeons choice at the end of the day to what they will do for you. Hope that helps. JG
I've been dealing with awful knee pain a couple of weeks now, and am awaiting a doctor visit. Not sure if I have sprained something or am just falling apart... I stumbled across this video this morning and tried your technique with the kinesiology tape and must say, I am quite pleasantly surprised! The pain has subsided quite a bit in mere seconds after applying the tape properly with the technique you've shared in this video, with regard to my particular type of knee pain. Thank you very much for sharing with us! Cheers!
sir i have lateral collateral ligament injury. i have been to doctor but first doctor said its cartilage problem. after one month medication again visited for check up the doctor said it may heal by itself. but the pain remain same for 3/4 months so again i consult another doctor. he said its ligament and he advice me to put knee belt to keep knee straight. and after one month i visted for check up . he said now i can remove the belt and he suggests me one exercise. but still i feel mild pain. so sir i wanna know how long it takes to recover for ligament torn. and what i should do.
i injured my knee a week ago.the doctor whom i consulted with diagnosed me with medial meniscal tear on both knees.does it need surgery? or will just heal by its own? i can walk now slowly but i can't bend both of my knees properly.and its still a bit painful.what shoud i do?
I dislocated my knee 5 weeks ago and now I'm trying this tape to deal with the pain until I've got my MRI and scan results (probably got a torn MCL and meniscus, and maybe other injuries on other ligaments). I didn't know how to stick it! I'll try this, thank you for the tutorial!!!
I knocked my knee against the wall. Now I can't bend it when I walk. I can bend it sitting though, or walking up the step. but not walking normal. Will this method help me to bend my knee when walking. I seem to not be able to put weight on the knee.
+Stevie Smith If anyone is interested in treating bowlegs at home the greatest info that I have ever had was by using the Lenas Bow Remedy (i found it on google) - without a doubt themost useful method that I've tried.
just tried it... seems like a lot less pain.. they told me i need an MRI on mine and repair. I don't have much mobility in it so they think it is a small tear. laser surgery but I really can't afford it right now... another great video! i'd like 100 times if it let me
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for this video. I am finally able to walk without pain! NOW i can begin to exercise again to strengthen the musculature surrounding the joint. I had tried other taping protocols without significant success. I used the long tape ("a little fiddly") alone for a couple of days and that helped, but the addition of the 2 smaller pieces then completely eliminated the pain i was experiencing with every step. Super happy camper here! :D
+Sameer Sandhu my condition is now arthritis w medial meniscus tear but it started as MCL sprain/strain. So i sure can't answer your question, but I'd suggest finding a good DC / PT / MT to help you with your recovery. Good luck!
+Taza Guthrie I just sprained my MCL and got a split along with crutches for it yesterday. It doesn't hurt all that much when resting, and there is very little swelling. I haven't been tole how severe the sprain is yet, but since I have so few symptoms, do you have any idea how long it will take for me to at least be able to walk normally again? Walking with crutches sucks.
Two questions: I have been watching different videos and some put the blue piece on last. Does it matter?
And second: If I tape my knee, do I still have to wear my knee brace. I'm pretty sure I my muscle is inflamed. It used to just hurt whiles doing physical activities but recently has been hurt even just went sitting down.
+krr866 I don't think it matters which order you apply the tape as there must be so many variations on youtube, i would try a method and see if works with you and that goes for the brace as well - try with and try without, good luck
Hi Dr, I am getting medial knee pain (MCL spraining) on both legs after physical activity. I saw you mentioned in one of the comments below that it could be due to my foot positioning -are there any corrective exercises you would recommend? For example squats with the feet "flared" out?
Hi, should i apply this for all day long? my work is at office only. does this help for my knee (MCL injury) improvement apart of application right before exercise / jogging / play football session taken place?
Hi +John Gibbons , i just went to played futsal with more precaution and tried to do minimal movement, unfortunately i injured my knee / tear ligament, and i suspected it is MCL, again.. i heard the pop when i was about to turn around with the ball. i have been doing the pphysiotherapy about 3 weeks ago and light jog before too. it doesnt help me much. what actually that i got to take more precaution??? i unable to walk where the pain is so much hurting.
I have transplantation of the two thirds of MCL, the rest is mine. And I have only one half of the plastic ACL.
My doctor told me that I cant do any sports like boxing etc. cause I cant do any vertical movements. Do You think, that I can work out muscle so much that it will be fine? I am excercising also balance on BOSU Home Balance Trainer.
Now I have pain in MCL, can this kind of taping help me?
Thank You for Ur advise
Hi doctor Gibbons, I would have your advice about my situation: 2 month ago I had a micro lesion on medial collateral ligament ( I think first degree or a simply elongation of the MCL) during a football match. I have done 3 tecar, my osteopath have treated my knee and I applied the taping. Before the treatment I felt pain during the flexion on MLC but now I feel no pain and I would resume to play football. My answer to you is: during the football match what type of taping I have to apply? I have to apply the taping for the MCL sprain or another type of taping?
Thank you for your availability and sorry for my bad english but I'm italian :)
Thanks for the reply. Gluts, right IT, foot position. Ya I'm sure any or all. I will be taking him to a running coach for proper pose technique. He is already running in bare foot running shoes and that corrected the shin splints. Thanks for your input.
It will off load the area of pain but it won't fix the problem, which is probably coming from either his foot position, the shoes or terrain he is running on or possibly weak gluteal muscles or all the above...
what does the kinesio tape do for you? its been a month now i can run and jog and bend my knee. i play football but when i do a side pass i feel that stingy pain but its bearable enough and disappears in seconds. how long would this pain last and does it mean i still dont have the green light to play? im in the strengthening phase now and would really loved to get back on the pitch already
