Muscle fatigue affects adversely the athletes´ performance and it is therefore one of the most investigated topics currently. However we do not know accurately the mechanisms that produce it.
The aim of this study is to determine the influence of the Kinesio taping (KT) application in the paravertebral muscle fatigue in a sample of healthy young subjects.
