Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Effect of Kinesio Taping on Muscle Strength in Lower Trapezius
Official Title  ICMJE The Effect of One Application of Kinesio Tape on Muscle Strength in Lower Trapezius on Patients With Shoulder Problems and Weak Lower Trapezius - a Randomized Controlled Trial
Brief Summary The purpose of this project is to investigate the effect of Kinesio tape on muscle strength of the lower trapezius in people with shoulder symptoms and decreased muscle strength in the lower trapezius - a randomized controlled trial.
Detailed Description

The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of recoil tape with 0-30% tension, by using one application of Kinesio tape over the muscle fibers of the lower trapezius from its origin to its insertion. The participants will be divided into intervention group (taping) and control group (no intervention). Muscle strength test will be performed before and immediately after taping (20-30 minutes) for both groups using hand-held dynamometer measurements (MicroFET 3).

Work is based on the following hypothesis: "Kinesio taping using recoil taping provides increased isometric muscle strength in lower trapezius immediately after application".

Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Muscle Weakness
Intervention  ICMJE Other: Kinesio tape
