  • 1. OMOLOLA EBODA Dr. Rachel Reneslacis ENGL-110 04/07/2015 Kinesiology Taping "Kinesiology Taping." ACA News (American Chiropractic Association) 9.2 (2013): 6. CINAHL Complete. Web. 7 Apr. 2015. This source discuss the research conducted by ACA news 2013, about a recent tape that has been found to reduce pains after contractions. The news testified about Kinesiology tape application, which is included in the time spent in direct contact with a patient either to provide re-education of a muscle and movement or to stabilize one body area to enable improved strength or range of motion. I will use this source to explain how the application of this tape is usually performed in conjunction with educating the patient on various functional movement patterns. Also, I’ll give more details on how the tape is applied based on the patient’s specific patterns of weakness or strength.

  • 2. This source emphasized on how Secondary lymphedema affects women treated for breast cancer, and it is recognized as a major problem associated with the therapy of malignant tumors. Analyses of therapeutic efficacy of different secondary lymphedema-reducing methods were performed, and so far fail to include Kinesiology Taping (KT) because it is a relatively new treatment modality, though it becomes increasingly common for lymphedema control. Meanwhile, the mechanism underlying KT has not, as yet, been fully understood. It was explained that Similar methods that deform the skin of the extremity were made, and KT increases lymph flow and can be used in the treatment of peripheral lymphedema. According to authors using KT in their practice, the method relieves tissue fluid congestion, augments blood and lymph circulation, and improves subcutaneous lymphatic drainage. I will use this source to discuss how Kinesiology Taping is an effective method of reduction in early-stage lymphedema of the upper extremity in women after breast cancer treatment and elaborate more on why one of the new forms of edema management, especially in the initial stages of edematous development, is Kinesiology Taping (KT). This source is credible because I found it on Lee University’s library database. Jin Tae, Han, and Lee Jung-Hoon. "Effects of Kinesiology Taping On Repositioning Error Of The Knee Joint after Quadriceps Muscle Fatigue." Journal of Physical Therapy Science 26.6 (2014): 921-923. CINAHL Complete. Web. 7 Apr. 2015. Consequently, relating to Gynecology, new therapeutic methods are constantly being sought to effectively eliminate the condition. Knowing that Muscle fatigue is an exercise-induced decline in the ability of muscles to produce force or power, and is known to alter proprioception. This source have shown
  • 3. that muscle fatigue negatively affects the joint position sense during both passive and active examination tests, Decline in knee proprioception as a result of physical fatigue may be a risk factor for knee ligament injuries. Frequently In sports games, most of the injuries occur near the end of the game because of the fatigued state of the players. It was observed that the use of kinesiology taping was gradually increasing in sports competitions, such as the Olympic Games or European football leagues, as well in sports medicine. I will use this source to unravel the effects of kinesiology taping on pain control, muscle control and joint function. Knowing that the research was to determine whether kinesiology taping decreases the repositioning error of the knee joint after quadriceps fatigue and ultimately confirm if kinesiology taping can improve joint position sense. This source is credible because I found it on Lee University’s library database. Byeong-Jo, Kim, and Lee Jung-Hoon. "Efficacy Of Kinesiology Taping For Recovery From Occupational Wrist Disorders Experienced By A Physical Therapist." Journal Of Physical Therapy Science 26.6 (2014): 941-943. CINAHL Complete. Web. 7 Apr. 2015. The source disclose how therapists applied kinesiology tape stretch on the wrist muscle and joint for an average of 12 h/day for 7 days, and The kinesiology tape was applied on the flexors of the right wrist from the medial epicondyle to the wrist joint on the palmar side when the wrist was in the extension position. The application of this tape gave them a result that proved that there was a decrease in Numeric Pain Rating Scale and an increase in the wrist and forearm range of motion.
  • 4. I will use this source to breakdown what happened during the taping intervention, and how patients could perform occupational wrist activities more easily than they could with a brace on. This source is credible because I found it on Lee University’s library database. Hwang-Bo, Gak, Jung-Hoon Lee, and Hyun-Dong Kim. "Efficacy of Kinesiology Taping For Recovery of Dominant Upper Back Pain in Female Sedentary Worker Having a Rounded Shoulder Posture." Technology & Health Care 21.6 (2013): 607-612. Academic Search Complete. Web. 6 Apr. 2015 This source clarifies that Most sedentary workers find that maintaining a correct good posture while sitting for a long time is difficult because of increased fatigue of the lumbar extensor muscles, it triggered the healthcare to research on recovery from upper back pain in sedentary workers with RSP(rounded shoulder posture ) is scarce. In their method of research, they applied only kinesiology taping around the patient’s upper back and shoulder for 1 month (six times per week, each session lasting for approximately 16 h) without any other interventions such as medication and physical therapy. Finally, there was a report and a decrease in the dominant upper back pain in a female sedentary worker with RSP through the correction of RSP after kinesiology taping. I will use this source to point out how the kinesiology tape experiment went and how successful it was in helping to relief the pain. Summarizing, at First kinesiology tape was applied from the anterior aspect of the acromion to the spinous process of the 10th thoracic vertebra. The second kinesiology tape was applied to the same area with
  • 5. approximately 50% overlay to enhance mechanical correction (arrow, direction of tape application). In the process, the patient was instructed to remove the tape if she experienced pruritus. After the initial assessment, a total of four assessments were performed when the tape was removed. This source is credible because I found it on Lee University’s library database. Aguilar-Ferrándiz, Mª, Encarnación, et al. "A Randomized Controlled Trial Of A Mixed Kinesio Taping–Compression Technique On Venous Symptoms, Pain, Peripheral Venous Flow, Clinical Severity And Overall Health Status In Postmenopausal Women With Chronic Venous Insufficiency." Clinical Rehabilitation 28.1 (2014): 69-81. CINAHL Complete. Web. 7 Apr. 2015. This source expound on how A double-blinded randomized clinical trial with parallel design was conducted in postmenopausal women from a community Centre in Granada province (southern Spain), who were referred to the clinical laboratory of the Physiotherapy Department of the University of Granada, and who were studied between September 2008 and March 2012. Data were gathered on venous symptoms, pain, peripheral venous flow, severity of venous disease and overall health status at two time points: baseline(before the treatment) and at one month when the treatment was finished and the last application of taping was removed. I will use this source to rationalize the result of the application of kinesiology taping on the affected parts of the patients and the relief it brought to them, throw light upon the method by which Participants were interviewed to obtain data on venous symptoms as
  • 6. primary outcome, and In order to stimulate dorsal flexion, the patient was placed in supine position for Kinesiology taping functional correction of the ankle, measuring and cutting an I-strip (blue) at maximum dorsiflexion and applied with 50% tension. Furthermore, two tapes (blue and black) were placed with 50% tension at malleolar level in order to exert peripheral venous compression. The treatment was performed three times a week during a four-week period. Including heaviness perception, sensation of swelling, muscle cramps and pruritus.
