McConnell Taping

What is McConnell tape

McConnell tape was invented by Jenny McConnell, a PT from Australia, who used taping to help patients with patellar tracking and was effective in reducing the pain. McConnell Tape is a rigid, highly adhesive tape that is applied for up to 18 hours or less depending on patient’s comfort.

Where is it used

Although it is most commonly used for patellofemoral syndrome, shoulder stabilization and muscle inhibition, it can also be used to treat Acute or chronic low back pain, Acute whiplash injuries, Headache, Neck and arm pain, Shoulder problems – rotator cuff, frozen shoulder, Hip problems – trochanteric bursitis, labral tears, Knee ligamentous injuries, Osteoarthritis of the knee, Patellar and Achilles tendinopathy, Shin splints, Sprained ankle, Hallux valgus, Tibialis posterior insufficiency & Knee instability post ACL reconstruction

The benefits

The benefits of McConnell taping include: reduced pain, aids in healing certain injuries, corrects joint alignment & improves joint loading, improves muscle timing and muscle activation patterns, and allows an earlier return to activity following injury.
