Abstract: Introduction/Background: Low back pain (LBP) is one of the greatly costly disorder in modern society, with the popularity in lifespan is as high as 84%, while the occurrence ratio of chronic low back pain is about 23%, among which 11–12% of the population leading to disabled. Taping method especially kinesio taping has received popularity since 2008 Olympic Games’ first seen application in top athletes, and gain consistent focus in its application range. we hypothesized that kinesio taping can improve movement control in non-specific chronic low back pain patients.
Material and Methods: Thirty subjects with CLBP aged from 18-55 were received motor control test with a series of unexpected perturbation when upright standing on force plate. The reaction latency, time to stabilization, adjustments numbers, range of centre of pressure as well as average velocity were calculated as measurements of capacity of movement control.
Results: After kinesio taping people with non-specific chronic low back pain showed significant reduce in time to stabilization, adjustments numbers, range of centre of pressure when compared with their baseline assessment, and decrease trend in reaction latency and average velocity, sham taping assessment showed same results with KT assessment.Conclusion: These data provided further evidence that kinesio taping method can improve movement control capacity in NCLBP patients, supporting application of kinesio taping method in treating CLBP patients. At the meantime, in consideration of the effectiveness of sham taping, perhaps there is no need to focus on specific taping method.
