This J Taping step-by-step guide shows you how to protect the ACL ligament in the knee midway through rehabilitation and to prevent injury of it from reoccurring.
Perform an anchor above and below the knee.
To perform the ‘J’ shape, tape down from the middle of the knee then across and underneath the knee cap and across lower the anchor.
Perform the same upwards and across to the top anchor.
Complete the ‘J’ taping three times up and down the knee to increase stability.
Secure the J taping with another set of anchors at the top and bottom of the knee.
With the EAB wrap around the top anchor twice and then diagonally down and around the base anchor.
Go diagonally up to the top anchor and around the back of the knee.
Wrap diagonally down again and round under the bottom of the knee.
Finish the EAB with one more vertical wrap to top anchor. Apply a zinc oxide anchor at the top and bottom to secure the EAB.
Alternatively a video tutorial is also available.
