Taping Tuesday: Inner Knee Pain

With a rash of MCL injuries occurring in the NBA recently (Iman Shumpert and Nene Hilario), I thought it would be appropriate to showcase a couple of kinesiotaping techniques for inner knee pain.  In addition to knee ligament issues, medial knee pain can also be caused by inflammation of the tendons from leg muscles that attach in the area such as the sartorious, gracilis, and semitendinosis.

KT Tape provides a way to tape the inner knee using two small strips and one larger strip of tape.

Rocktape on the other hand provides support in the region using a regular strip and a half strip of tape.
