KT Tape Back of Knee
Music Hi, I’m Chris Harper and with me is Makayla and we’re here to demonstrate and application for the Back of the Knee. This may be pain over the tendons running vertically behind the knee. And for this application, we’re going to have Makayla turn around. Go ahead and set that area on stretch. We’re going to set this back and we’re going to place a red dot where your pain may be, you pain may vary slightly, but for this demonstration we’re just going place it right there. Some causes of this may be tendinitis, a Baker’s cyst, swelling behind the knee.
Popliteal tendinitis, hamstring tightness hyper extension, or general overuse. KT Tape helps treat the area by relaxing or supporting the muscles reducing pressure in the area and may increase circulation. So for this application we’re first gonna take a full strip and again I have this area on stretch so we’re going to stretch the calf and the hamstring if we can. I’m going to take the first strip, we’re going to take and twist the paper backing peeling that paper off to create an anchor point. I’m being careful not to touch the adhesive portion of the tape and just handling it.
By the paper, I’m going to place this just below the knee, and rub that on with absolutely zero stretch. I’m actually avoiding the back part of the knee I’m actually going to go over the tendons of the knee Im going to peel that paper off and we’re going to apply this with fiftypercent stretch, so I’m going to stretch this out onehundred percent then back that off about half way and lay that tape down. The last bit of tape I’m actually going to just remove that paper and I’m going to lay that.
Anchor down with absolutely zero stretch. And give the whole thing a little bit of a rub just to create some friction, some heat, that gets it to adhere to the skin well. For my next strip I’m going to tear a full piece. Again, just like the first one, I’m going to twist and tear the backing paper to create an anchor, and I’m being careful not to touch that adhesive. on the back of the tape. I’m going to go just the opposite side of the first strip, I’m laying that anchor down, with.
Absolutely zero stretch. I’m avoid the back of the knee again. Around that point of pain, I’m going to do a fiftypercent stretch and stretching that nice and evenly, like that, I’m going to lay that down, I’m going to remove the paper backing and then lay that anchor down with absolutely zero stretch. I’m just going to give that a good friction rub for better adhesion to the skin. Some helpful tips before apply this is to clean the skin very well, remove any skin oils or lotions you may have on, also trim excessive hair in this area.

Our other piece that we just created we going to twist and tear that backing paper.
Peeling that back and again trying to handle the tapes so you’re not touching the adhesive apply nice even pressure through the piece of tape and apply that crossing the other piece now lining with the lower leg just like the first piece laying those tails down with absolutely zero stretch. Give a little bit of a friction rub so it’d adheres make sure you get all the corners sticking to your skin well little friction helps the adhesive stick to the skin much better. And for our third piece we’re going to twist and tear.
A full piece of tape down by the logo end of the tape and create an anchor there. With this piece we are going right in between our first two pieces down a little bit lower so it adheres to the skin and applying this with absolutely zero stretch so for this peace we need to apply twenty five percent stretch so we are going to stretch it out fully and then back off half and half again to create twenty five percent and we’re going to lay that down in.

It should be know that the majority of people who come to see me as patients who have been diagnosed with sciatica, don’t have true sciatica. They do have leg pain that is mimicking sciatica. In other words, it is running through the buttocks and down the thight, right down to the ankle but it stems from a different place. It’s not the sciatic nerve. It is from a tight muscle in the buttocks,.
Known as the piriformis muscle. It clamps down over the sciatic nerve giving you sciaticlike symtoms. par You chiropractor can tell the difference between these two. True sciatica and a piriformis muscle problem. I’m going to show you a stretch to get rid of the piriformis muscle problem and the resultant leg pain. If you do this stretch and notice your leg pain starting to decrease, you probably didn’t have true sciatica and that’s great, because sciatica is harder to treat. par So you want to sit fairly close to the wall and swing your legs up so your heels touch.
The wall. If you leg pain is on the left, then take your left ankle and place it over your left knee. Now some of you might find that this position is already very difficult to get into because your piriformis muscle has become very tight. If you want to increase the stretch, shuffle up closer to the wall with your buttocks. If you want to deepen the stretch yet again, slide your right foot down the wall so that your knee is bent. You can increase the stretch by gently bringing the left knee toward your opposite shoulder. That is the.
Knee Pain Stretches Exercises Ask Doctor Jo
Hey everybody it’s Doctor Jo. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about knee pain. Knee pain is actually probably the second most common thing that we see next to back pain. And that simply because you can get that OA in there. And when I say OA I don’t mean old age. It actually stands for Osteoarthritis. And you can even start getting that as early as 25 to 30 years old. So when you start feeling some aching in your bones and your joints and your knee, these are some stretches you can do to kind of work it out a little bit. And.
Remember, once you stretch you need to strengthen. Already let’s get started with some of the stretches. The first thing I’m gonna have you do is I’m gonna have you straighten out your leg. We’re gonna work out the joint a little bit, get some movement in there and get it loosened up. So we’re gonna bring out our trusty belt, or dog leash if you have one, I usually take off my shoes for this one casue it’s gonna help you slide a little bit. If you need a towel underneath you can do that, doing it in bed seems to help a lot.
Because it’s a little more slick on your sheets so you’ll get a little more movement. I’m gonna have you put the belt around your foot, anywhere that’s comfortable, and your gonna bring your knee up. If you need a little help, a little over pressure stretch, that’s what the belt is for. So you’re just gonna kind of slide it up, get a good bend in there. And just a little pause with this one, maybe just a 5 to 10 second pause, and then you’re gonna come back down. But the movement in the join is what’s gonna loosen it up, so.
You wanna do this continuously. A little pause at the top, maybe you can go a little further the next time, and then come back down. So you wanna do that about 8 or 10 times, really getting that joint moving. And then stretching it as far as you can, and coming back down. Now we’re going to move the kneecap around a little bit. This is your patella, they might call it a patella, you might say say what , but it’s basically your knee cap on top. The key to moving around your kneecap is that your leg has to be relaxed. If you’re squeezing.
Your muscles tight, that’s pushing it down into your joint and it’s not gonna move, so you really want your leg to be relaxed, you can kind of hit it a little bit that helps those muscles relax a little bit. And all you’re gonna do is your just gonna start moving it back and forth, side to side. That’s the first one. The first couple times it might be hard, it’s not knowing what’s going on, so your muscles are tightening up a little bit, you can push pretty hard, getting that movement in there. Go side to side a little.
Bit, and you can go front to back a little bit. You’re just moving it back and forth. If you have some osteoarthritis in there you might feel a little bit of crunching going on. That’s ok. That’s what we call crepitus, and that’s just that arthritis in there. You keep moving it as much as you can. This importance of this is the patella is connected to your quadricep tendon up here, and your patellar tendon down there. Those, if they’re tight, push that kneecap down and you’re not gonna get as much bend in your knee. So.
The key here is to get that kneecap moving, and then you’ll have more room to bend that knee if it’s feeling really tight. Back and forth. Up and Down. Ok. So now we’re just gonna do some stretches of the muscles. You’ve got the joint loosened up a little bit, no we’re gonna stretch out those muscles a little bit. I’m gonna have you bring back out your belt, and we’re gonna this time put it around the balls of our feet. So not your toes, but just below your toes, right on the ball there, and you’re gonna keep.
Your leg straight. This is gonna stretch out our calf muscle underneath. The calf actually, those tendons kind of cross the knee so you really wanna get those stretched out. You’re gonna relax your foot, and you’re gonna pull it towards you as much as you can. Now if your knee starts bending a little bit, then you’re pulling too hard and your changing the muscle your stretching. So you want that leg to be straight. And you’re gonna pull. And of course this is a stretch so you wanna hold if for 30 seconds and you wanna do it.
Three times each. Ok. Just relax. And then pull it again. The next one is a hamstring stretch. The hamstring has many different ways that you can stretch it, so I’m just gonna show you one, but we do have a tutorial of hamstring stretches, a bunch of different ways, so if this one doesn’t feel comfortable for you, or it hurts too much, go check out hamstring stretching and you can pick out the one that’s best suited for you. Because it doesn’t really matter, they’re all stretching the hamstring, so if you like one.
Better than the other, you can do that one. But what you’re gonna do, is your gonna bring the opposite leg up. And you’re gonna keep your leg straight. The key here is you don’t want to curl your back. If you’re culing your back trying to touch your toes, you’re not really stretching your hamstrings because your hamstrings are connected to your pelvis. So you really need to move your pelvis when you’re going. You wanna keep your back straight, and just lean forward. I’m getting more of a stretch in my hamstrings here, than.
When I’m bending down to here. So remember you wanna keep your back straight, and you wanna bend at your pelvis. And this stretch, 30 seconds, three times each. Ok. Now the last one I’m gonna have you do is I’m gonna have you turn over onto your stomach and we’re gonna stretch out your quad muscle. Alright So where we go. I’m gonna have you take your belt again and make a little loop in it. Your gonna put the loop around your foot right here, and you’re gonna tighten it up. And so what you gonna do is your gonna.
Bring it around your shoulder, this is the key, and your gonna pull on that strap until you feel a good stretch on the front thigh part of your leg where that quadriceps muscle is. Now most people aren’t gonna be able to touch their bottom like this, so you might be right here. That’s fine. You want that stretch to be a good tension stretch, you want pressure, but remember you don’t want it to be painful. So you’re gonna pull and your gonna hold it for 30 seconds, three time each. Alright, so there you have it those.
Hip Pain Knee Pain Exercises, Seated Ask Doctor Jo
Hey everybody, it’s Doctor Jo. Today I’m gonna show you some knee and hip exercises in a seated position. So if you’re not quite ready for standing and you’ve already graduated from the lying down, these are for you. Let’s get started. The first exercise is gonna be for knee extension. It’s gonna be strengthening the quad muscle here. You wanna make sure you sit in a nice upright position. If you’ve got a chair with a back that might help you out cause if you’re leaning while you’re doing these exercises, you’re not doing it right.
So make sure that you’re not leaning. You want to keep your hips in a nice 90 degree angle, and you’re going to kick it straight out, get it as straight as you can, and slowly come back down. This is not gonna be a good exercise. Make sure you’re controlling it, make sure you’re going slow, squeezing the muscles tight, slowly coming back down. This might be really easy for you, might not be easy for some people. But if it’s easy, you can add some weights onto your ankle. So just going straight up, and slowly coming back.
Down. The next one is gonna be for hip flexion strengthening. Same kind of thing, you want to keep your back upright. And now you’re gonna drive your knee straight up. Coming up this way, and slowly coming back down. Same thing, you want to go slow and controlled. If you’re going like this, you’re using momentum, you’re not using your muscles. So nice and slow coming up, nice and slow going down. And again, if you have some ankle weights, if this is easy, if you can get to 15, 20, 25 and it’s not a little painful sore, then.
You need to add a little bit of weight. The last one is gonna be hip extension. Go ahead and grab a band. Yellow is the lightest. And this time, you’re gonna start up high and push down. Remember with the band, you want to control the band, don’t let the band control you. Nice and slow going down, nice and slow coming back up. Those were you’re seated exercises for your hip and your knee, if you have any questions, leave them in the comments section, and if you want to check out some other tutorials, like the ones lying down or if you think you’re.
Knee Extension Improvement Knee Straightening Ask Doctor Jo
Hey everybody, it’s Doctor Jo. I’ve had a lot of emails questions asking me how to straighten out the knee. Get more knee extension. So today I’m going to show you some knee extension stretches. So one of the easiest things to do to get more knee extension is sit in a chair and find something sturdy to prop your knee up on. If you have a lot of bend in your knee and you can’t straighten it out, you might need a little bit of help. This might be fine for some people and it might be hard for them to tolerate it, but you might need.
That extra push. You can use a sack of potatoes. That is a lot of weight on there, but a lot of times that is what people do, is just put it on there. Slightly above the knee. You don’t want to put it right on the knee joint, but you want to put it slightly above the knee. If you don’t have a sack of potatoes, like I don’t, you can get a grocery bag of soup. So the more soup you put in there, the heavier it is. You can just take the leg put.
It through the holes, and put it just slightly above that knee. If you can tolerate five minutes of that, great! Ten minutes, even better. It just depends on how much of the extension you still need. If this isn’t quite enough, you really need a lot, you need to push it hard, you can actually lie down on your stomach. So I’m going to show you that now. Oh, were back! Okay, so this can be done on your bed. I just want to show you so you can see my leg hanging off. Because the important piece of this, is see how my knee is past.
The edge. You don’t want your knee up here, even if your hanging off the bed, you want your knee slightly off the edge so you don’t get a whole lot of pressure on that knee because most likely your knee is hurting because you don’t have that full extension. So again, just hanging here like this might be all some people are able to tolerate. You can take a towel roll and place it under your thigh as well, but if you’re on a bed or couch, you should do okay. If this is not getting enough stretch for you just hanging, again.
You can grab a bag with some soup cans in it. I got it! You will probably have to have somebody put it on there for you. Or start with it on, and then lay down. Just try and relax that leg as much as you can, and just let it hang and stretch out. Those were your knee extension stretches. If you have any questions, leave them in the comment section.
