Purpose

This study was designed to inspect the effects of kinesiotape (KT) on pressure pain threshold (PPT) and normalized resting myoelectric activity at upper trapezius myofascial trigger points.

Methods

pre and post randomized clinical designed on thirty subjects with active trigger points. They divided randomly into two equal groups. Group "A" received KT for 72 hours while group "B" (control group) didn't receive any treatment but follow instructions. PPT and resting myoelectric activity were measured before and after completion of treatment.

Results

Statistical analysis (t-test and z-test) shown that there was a significant difference at PPT and normalized resting myoelectric activity at group "A" as (p<0.05) but there was no significant difference at PPT and resting myoelectric activity at group "B" as (p>0.05).

Conclusion

KT is an effective method in treatment of subjects with active trigger points at upper trapezius myofascial trigger points.
