Effects of Kinesio Taping on Balance and Performance in Healthy Adults with Dynamic Knee Valgus


Objective: This research aims that, assess to immediate effects of kinesio taping on balance and performance in healthy adults with dynamic knee valgus.

Materials and Methods: Thirty healthy individuals with dynamic knee valgus (DKV) and without any medical history were included in this study. Individuals randomly separated in three groups which are kinesio tape group (KG) (n=10), placebo group (PG) (n=10) and control group (CG) (n=10). Muscle facilitation technique applied on gluteus medius muscle in KG, that repeated with plaster tape in PG. Handheld digital dynamometer MicroFet2® used for measure to gluteus medius muscle strength and OptoJump Next® used for vertical jump tests. Frontal Plan Projection Angle (FPPA) measured with cam for assess to DKV at the same time with vertical jump test. Balance assessed with Star Balance Excursion Test (SEBT). Pre-test and post-test method used for statistics. Changes between groups tested with once Kruskal Wallis Test then Mann-Whitney U Test and in group changes tested with Wilcoxon Test.

Results: Fifteen male and fifteen female who ages 25.07±2.54 included in this study. In group analysis significantly showed that; FPPA decreased, Gluteus Medius Strength and vertical jump height increased in KG; FPPA decreased and SEBT increased on anterior direction in PG; SEBT increased on anterior direction in CG (p<0.05). Between group analysis significantly showed that; FPPA lower and Gluteus...
