Knee taping

Knee taping (also known as patellar taping) is a procedure performed by physicians to treat knee injuries. Knee taping reduces pain and corrects patellar position to allow rehabilitation and the resuming of corrective exercises.


The knee is first inspected by a physician, physical therapist or athletic trainer to determine if taping is necessary.

McConnell knee taping technique

Invented by Australian physiotherapist, Jenny McConnell.

Types of tape

Pre-Wrap or Cover tape

A pre-wrap is a protective tape. Its purpose is to create a firm surface for further taping.

Wrap or Adhesive tape

Adhesive tape or wrap is applied to the cover tape and must not be applied directly to the skin.
