Purpose

This study was designed to inspect the effects of kinesiotape (KT) on pain intensity and range of motion at upper trapezius myofascial trigger points.

Methods

pre and post randomized clinical designed on forty 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. Pain intensity and range of motion were measured before and after completion of treatment.

Results

Statistical analysis (t-test) shown that there was a significant difference at pain intensity and range of motion at group "A" as (p<0.05) but there was no significant difference at pain intensity and range of motion 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.
