ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study regarding the efficacy of knee tape in the management of osteoarthritis of the knee, published in the 2003 issue of "British Medical Journal." Because no cure for osteoarthritis exists, treatments focus on managing symptoms so that individuals can maintain reasonable functional capabilities. The study highlights the importance of the patellofemoral joint as a source of symptoms in knee osteoarthritis. It shows that therapeutic knee taping reduces pain and disability in patients with osteoarthritis. The influence of the tape may unload the lateral patellofemoral joint, where pathology and resultant symptoms predominate.
