Novel PFPS Taping: Tibial Medial Rotation
Reference:Mulligan BR 1999 Manual Therapy, NAGS, SNAGS, MWMS. Plane View Services, Wellington, New Zealand
This taping technique may be effective if the usual patellar taping fails to give relief in patello-femoral pain syndrome (PFPS).
The patient stands with the tibia and the foot exaggerated into medial rotation and then flexes the knee by 5-10 degrees.
Start tape from the lateral aspect of the leg approximately 4 finger widths distal to the fibular head. Pull the tape diagonally going cranially and medially and ending medially at the posterior thigh.
Note: The cover roll (white tape) and Leukotape (brown tape) were used for this technique
