Abstract:

A single case study design was used to investigate the effects of kinesio tape to reduce pain and tightness in post-operative fractures. A visual analogue scale was used to measure pain , knee range of motion was used to measure available range and Manual muscle testing was used to measure muscle strength. The study involved three phases in an ABC design. They were 1- week pre assessment, 1week-treatment phase and 1week post treatment assessment phase. The technique resulted in reduction in pain, improved range of motion and improvement in quadriceps and hamstring strength in case of malunited supracondylar fracture. Although single case study design limits generalization of the results, it does provide evidence of the beneficial response obtained by use of kinesiotaping in malunited supracondylarfracture patients.
