Title

The Effects of Leg Spiral Kinesiology Tape Technique on Postural Sway in Clients withMultiple Sclerosis: A Quantitative preliminary Study

Objectives

To understand the effectiveness of leg spiral kinesiology tape technique as arehabilitation strategy for the treatment of postural sway and balance in patients with MultipleSclerosis.

Study Design

Experimental cross-over design was used to conduct the study withlaboratory based data collection technique.

Method/Protocol

A random sample of 6 participants with Multiple Sclerosis was assessed.Participants postural sway measurements were assessed twice using Wii Balance Boardanalysis without leg spiral kinesiology tape application and again twice with leg spiralkinesiology tape application.

Key Results

A mean difference in Centre of Pressure (CoP) during quiet stance withoutspiral kinesiology tape application (29.2cm ± 13.07) and with application of spiral kinesiologytape (21.08cm ± 8.67) was calculated at -8.12cm (±11.71cm; 90% CI -18cm - 1.5cm). Theapplication of kinesiology tape led to a likely small beneficial effect.

Conclusion

It was concluded that the use of spiral kinesiology tape application can lead toa likely small improvement in postural sway in the acute instance
