What is McConnell taping? I heard it might help my knee pain. Where do I get this tape?

Jenny McConnell is a physical therapist from Australia. She came up with a treatment plan using taping and exercise for a condition called patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). It's been used for the last 20 years with good results.

The taping is designed to pull the patella (kneecap) over the middle of the knee. This helps the patella track or glide up and down properly.

McConnell taping is done by trained physical therapists and athletic trainers. They use a special kind of tape that holds in place while the leg moves. Once the therapist or trainer decides the right taping method to use for your problem, you can learn how to apply it to yourself.
