Genu Recurvatum? Tape it!
Habitual standing with the knees in hyperextension may eventually lead to inner range quads insufficiency.
This insufficiency may be the primary cause of various knee conditions including osteo-arthritis, patello-femoral pain, patellar subluxations and recurrent knee sprains.
Taping can be a very effective way of preventing habitual knee hyperextension by giving a continuous feedback every time they attempt to hyperextend during gait or when just standing around.
