Knee taping

Ahmad M Wagih, Ahmed M F Elguindy
Recent advances in surgeons' understanding of the anatomic, biomechanical, and radiologic features of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee have led to an increased interest in reconstruction of this structure as part of the management of knee instability. Even without any technical flaws and proper positioning of the bone tunnels, there is a small subset of patients, approximately 7% of all patients, who experience some residual anterolateral rotational instability after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction...

PURPOSE: It is an established fact that post-operative (p.o.) soft-tissue swelling and lymphoedema after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have a major influence on the p.o. early functional outcome. Kinesio taping has a proven clinical effect in increasing lymph drainage. Despite the decades of experience gained and the assumed positive effects, hardly any investigations have been conducted to date on the influence of Kinesio taping on the p.o. healing process after TKA. The objective of the present study was to test the hypothesis that Kinesio taping used as a lymph application leads to a reduction of p...

INTRODUCTION: Dynamic clinical tests of hip strength applicable on patients, non-athletes and athletes alike, are lacking. The aim of this study was therefore to develop and evaluate the reliability of a dynamic muscle function test of hip external rotation strength, using a novel device. A second aim was to determine if gender differences exist in absolute and relative hip strength using the new test. METHODS: Fifty-three healthy sport science students (34 women and 19 men) were tested for hip external rotation strength using a device that consisted of a strap connected in series with an elastic resistance band loop, and a measuring tape connected in parallel with the elastic resistance band...

Loxoprofen (Loxonin(®), Loxonin(®) Pap, Loxonin(®) Tape) is a prodrug-type NSAID that is available in several formulations, including 60 mg tablets, 100 mg hydrogel patches and 50 or 100 mg tape. In active comparator-controlled trials, oral loxoprofen therapy (ranging from 2 days to 6 weeks' duration depending on the pain type) provided analgesic efficacy that generally did not significantly differ from that of celecoxib for postoperative pain or frozen shoulder, ibuprofen for knee osteoarthritis or naproxen for lumbar pain...

Elite golf athletes suffer from various musculoskeletal injuries due to repeated golf swings. Repetitive varus moment during golf swing has been suggested as a possible cause of injuries to the lead knee. The aim of this study was to objectively and quantitatively evaluate the immediate effects of sports taping on the lead knee of elite golfers to restrict varus moment. Thirty-one elite golfers were assigned to the low (LHG, n = 15) or high handicapped group (HHG, n = 16). By using 3-dimensional motion analysis, the lead knee position on the frontal plane with and without rigid taping (RT), elastic taping (ET), and placebo taping (PT) was identified in four separate phases by the five events of golf swing: the peak of the back swing (E1), parallel to the ground during downswing (E2), ball impact (E3), parallel to the ground during follow-through (E4), and finish (E5)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a common source of anterior knee pain. Controversy exists over the exact clinical findings which define PFPS, thus, diagnosis and management can be challenging for clinicians. There is paucity in the literature concerning joint mobilization as treatment for PFPS, particularly at the tibiofemoral joint, as standard management is currently focused on therapeutic exercise, orthotics, bracing and taping. Therefore, the purpose of this case report is to describe the effects of tibiofemoral joint mobilization in the successful treatment of an individual with chronic PFPS as it relates to pain, function and central processing of pain...

BACKGROUND: It has been previously shown that exercise programs for patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) can be supported by medially directed taping. Evidence supporting the use of patellar braces is limited because previous studies have been low quality. The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of patients with PFPS after treatment with a medially directed patellar realignment brace and supervised exercise. METHODS: In a prospective randomized multicenter trial, 156 patients with PFPS were included and randomly assigned to 6 weeks of supervised physiotherapy in combination with the patellar realignment brace, or supervised physiotherapy alone...
