Effects of taping and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation for stance phase duration of stroke patients
By Journal of Physical Therapy Science | 22 November 2017
Type:Randomised
Sample Size:30
Outcome:Positive


Purpose

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of taping and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation in stroke patients.

Subjects and Methods

Thirty patients who were diagnosed with hemiparalysis due to stroke were selected as subjects of study. Experiment group 1 patients had Kinesio taping applied before applying the PNF, while experiment group 2 patients had McConell taping applied before applying the PNF. The control group had only the PNF applied. The dartfish program was used to evaluate the stance phase of stroke patients.

Results

Experiment group 1 and experiment group 2 showed a significantly longer stance phase duration of the affected side than the control group in week 6.

Conclusion

Application of Kinesio taping has a more positive effect on the stance phase duration than McConell taping in the patients with stroke.
