KINESIOLOGY TAPING FOR QUADRICEPS

    1

  • Measure a strip of K Tape along the length of the Quad and cut an I STRIP (see our Taping Techniques video for more).

  • Round the edges to prevent fraying and catching on clothing.

    2

  • Put the quads on stretch. We found that a kneeling position is best for self-taping.

  • Apply the end of the I STRIP at the top of the quad with 0% stretch.

  • Lay the rest of the tape down with 0% stretch along rectus femoris (or quad of your choosing).

    3

  • Prepare another short I STRIP, measuring across the quad.

  • Rip the backing paper into 3 and remove the centre section.

  • Stretch the tape to 50% and apply directly over the point of pain.

  • Stick the ends of the tape down with 0% stretch.

  • Wait at least 30 minutes before exercise to allow time for the adhesive to set against the skin.
