Research Review: Kinesio Taping Meta-Analysis

via Sports Medicine Research

The analysis found some improvements for strength, ROM, and force sense error in different joints/areas of the body. They did not find improvements in pain, ankle proprioception, or muscle activity.

I have no formal experience with kinesiotaping, but I have taped using Mulligan's recommended methods for various conditions like ankle sprains and PFS. I remember a study that looked at McConnell taping for PFS. The 3 groups were taped in neutral, laterally, and medially. ALL 3 improved and the authors concluded there was no mechanical effect and it must have been neurologic/proprioceptive.
