Theraband Kinesiology Tape: Research and Methods

Medbridge Research

The first course in this four-part series on TheraBand Kinesiology Tape focuses on the research and methods of kinesiology taping. Kinesiology taping is a popular clinical intervention, yet there remains controversy about its efficacy. Typically applied to reduce musculoskeletal pain, other claims of efficacy include improvements in strength, range of motion, swelling, and function. Research behind the efficacy of applying specific patterns, directions, and tape tensions remain scarce despite widespread training programs. This course provides a scientifically-based approach to applying kinesiology tape and by recognizing the limitations in the literature. By combining the best available evidence with clinical experience and patient presentation, clinicians will make better clinical decisions when using kinesiology tape.

This is the first course in the four-part TheraBand Kinesiology Tape series. Please be sure watch the following three courses:

TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape: Basic Applications of the Upper Quarter
