Patellofemoral pain is widely considered to be a condition that is multifactorial in nature, and that requires a multimodal approach to its successful management. Taping is commonly used as one treatment element and there is good evidence to support its ability to modify pain and help to restore function. This article aims to provide a critical assessment of the available evidence and to help guide clinicians on the most appropriate taping intervention for individuals with PFPS. Gaps in the evidence are highlighted, but potential mechanisms are discussed to ensure clinical utility.
Myofascial Taping is a unique and innovative taping therapy that has been developed by Markus Erhard. It has a revolutionary taping and therapy approach, which is totally different from kinesio taping, based on new fascia research and the myofascial connections (Anatomy Trains) to rid the body of restrictions and restore the natural myofascial balance instantly and effectively. The physiological effects are achieved by intensive myofascial release and activation; the results can be obtained in one therapy session and include improved muscle function and range of motion, enhanced sporting performance and reliable pain relief from acute and chronic myofascial pain.
