The Effectiveness of Trigger Point Injection Plus Kinesio Taping in Myofascial Pain Syndrome: a Randomized, Sham-Controlled Clinical Trial

SUMMARY Objective. Although the trigger point injection (TPI) is the most widely used treatment method in myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), other treatment methods have also been proven to be influential. Even if a certain level of pain relief is achieved after the TPI, this effect persists for a short time and a few treatment sessions are generally required. Hence, … Continued

Comparison of distal versus proximal-distal kinesio taping effects on gait initiation profile in athletes with functional ankle instability

Objective. The objectives of this study were to investigate the impact of two application methods of kinesio taping on gait initiation (GI) profile of athletes with and without functional ankle instability (FAI): 1) distal (applied on the peroneus longus muscle), 2) proximal- distal (applied on gluteus medius and peroneus longus muscles). Methods. Experiment consisted of … Continued
