The Effect of Kinesio Taping on Ankle Proprioception
The Effect of Kinesio Taping on Ankle Proprioception

This study examines the effect of kinesiology tape on proprioception and postural control in subjects with sub-acute and chronic ankle sprains/strain.

The a priori hypothesis of this study is that proprioception (knee repositioning error) and balance (sway velocity and center of pressure) will improve significantly after intervention (Kinesiotape) in participants with a history of acute or chronic ankle sprains/strains.
