Knee pain can result from many conditions. Among athletes, common injuries arising from overuse include inflammation and irritation of the patella or quadriceps tendons from poor patella tracking. Other causes of common knee pain stem from injuries that strain or tear ligaments. Meniscus damage and arthritis are also major contributors to knee pain. Each of these conditions have their own well-established treatments that include rest, icing after athletic use, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and training, or even surgical procedures. Proper diagnosis of the source of your pain is vital to creating a treatment plan to reduce pain and improve function. Your professional medical provider has the tools and expertise to diagnose and develop a treatment plan for your specific condition.

KT Tape has been helpful for general knee pain, regardless of its source, through its ability to provide support without limiting mobility. KT Tape queues large muscle groups like the quadriceps to do their job in supporting knee movement. By creating surface tension on the skin over the area needing support, KT Tape creates a light, comfortable support structure that relieves pain and restores mobility.
