Does 'Kinesio tape' alter thoracolumbar fascia movement during lumbar flexion? An observational laboratory study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Changes in thoracolumbar fascial thickness, structure and shear strain are associated with lower back pain (LBP). Therapeutic taping techniques such as Kinesio-Taping (KT) are increasingly used to treat LBP, albeit with variable effects and unclear mechanisms. However, evidence for quantifying how treatment effects in vivo fascia properties is… (More)
