Kinesio taping is a treatment for pain and dysfunction of musculoskeletal system, using tapes which have a similar elasticity to skin. This
study was done to find out about the efficacy of kinesio taping on patients with a low back pain.
This study was performed in patients with a low back pain. We performed taping to a randomized case group and a placebo to control group during
the first 3 days. After the first 3 days, we assessed the changes of improvement in low back pain.
Kinesio taping was more efficacious than placebo in patients with a nonspecific low back pain.
