BACKGROUND Scapular taping is frequently used in the management of shoulder pain and as a part of injury prevention strategies in sports. It is believed to alter scapular kinematics and restore normal motion. However, there is little evidence to support its use. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of shoulder taping on the scapular kinematics of asymptomatic subjects. METHOD Thirteen asymptomatic subjects performed elevations in the sagittal and scapular planes with no tape and… CONTINUE READING
