Efficacy of Kinesio tape on pressure pain threshold and normalized resting Myoelectric activity on upper Trapezius Myofascial Trigger points
Background: This study was designed to inspect the effects of Kinesio tape on the pressure pain threshold and normalized resting myoelectric activity at upper trapezius myofascial trigger points. Method: A pre- and post-randomized clinical trial was performed on thirty subjects with active trigger points. Subjects were randomly divided into two equal groups. Group "A" received KT 2 times/week for one week. Group B (control group) did not receive any treatment but followed the instructions. PPT and resting myoelectric activity were measured before and after completion of study. Results: Statistical analysis (t-test and z-test) showed a significant difference in PPT and normalized resting myoelectric activity in group "A" (p<0.05), but there was no significant difference in PPT and resting myoelectric activity in group "B" (p˃ 0.05). Conclusion: KT is an effective method in the treatment of subjects with active upper trapezius myofascial trigger points.
