Athletic tape strapped around the kneecap may give pain relief to older adults suffering from arthritis, a study said.

According to researchers at the University of Melbourne in Australia, taping is helpful for older people with chronic patellofemoral pain, which causes pain around or behind the knee, according to Reuters.

Chronic patellofemoral pain is a problem that is commonly seen in runners and often associated with a malalignment in the knee joint.

The study was conducted on 14 adults with an average age of 57, along with 14 arthritis-free adults the same age.
