Common Knee Conditions - Runner's Knee

downloadRunner’s knee, or Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), is one of the most common causes of knee pain. Despite its name, it’s a condition not solely connected to runners, and can occur in anyone who puts a lot of stress on their knees. In the sports world, runners, skiers, and cyclists are most prone to runner’s knee, but it can also occur in individuals whose occupations involve frequent bending of the knee through squatting or climbing of stairs or ladders The most common symptom of runner’s knee is pain around or behind the kneecap (patella), especially when going up and down stairs or hills. .  Kneeling, sitting, bending and squatting are also painful and are often accompanied by a grinding or clicking when the knee is bent or straightened. Traditional treatment options for runner’s knee include stretching, RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), strengthening exercises, rest and anti-inflammatory medication.  More recently, therapists, trainers and athletes are applying kinesiology tape to help alleviate the symptoms of runner’s knee, or to prevent it from recurring.  A few strips of kinesiology tape can help stabilize the patella, as well as reduce pain and inflammation. Kinesiology taping is especially popular with athletes as it can often allow them to continue training and competing as they recover from this overuse injury.

Genesis Excel Performance Tape Sample Pack

$8.99

Professional Bowlers Association Registered Product



Excel Performance Tape is a multi-use kinesiology tape developed to assist bowlers with ball fitting, release speed and

skin protection. Rather than being applied inside the holes of the bowling ball like insert tape, Excel Performance Tape is applied directly to the thumb and fingers for a more customized application. The highly elastic synthetic fabric stretches and moves with your skin and the patented adhesive leaves no sticky residue. The 2.75" x 1" (7cm x .5cm) size is perfect for wrapping around fingers and thumbs, but is also great for toes, heels and other small areas of the body that need some extra protection.

If you\'re not sure which Excel product will be best for you, this sample pack is a great item to start with. It contains 2 strips each of Excel 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 so you can test them all to determine which gives you the perfect fit.

Kinesio Classic Fan Cuts - Pack of 12

$12.99 $15.99

Fan taping is a simple and effective way to reduce swelling, bruising, and even the severe swelling associated with lymphedema. Applying the tails of the fan tape over the affected area lifts the skin microscopically, enhancing lymphatic drainage. This allows accumulated fluid to drain away, dramtically reducing both edema and the appearance of bruising.  The use of Kinesio Taping is so effective that it has become a standard treatment in lymphedema treatment plans. While it used to be tedious work to cut strips of KinesioTape into the thin "tails" required for lymphatic drainage, the introduction of precut Kinesio Fan Strips has made lymphatic taping quick and easy.

* Package contains twelve 2" x 12" fan strips - 3 beige, 3 black, 3 blue and 3 pink.
