Luke, interesting stuff there. In terms of rehabilitation of AKP or any injury I tend to rehab and plan the exercise on what I see in front of me; majority of cases VMO is a problem and I have always trained it hard. I wouldn’t like to leave it out to try and see if it would make a difference because I am potentially stopping someones career!
OnSpeed- taping is individual to the patient. I will often tape it in a ‘pain free’ position and then gradually reduce the pull as they progress.
My recent VMO deficient patient was a guy who split both his patellas playing football- awesome scars but now back to full fitness and carrying packs after a gruelling 23 weeks!!
