Brief Summary:
This study aim evaluates the effect of Kinesio Taping (KT) on back muscle fatigue of low back pain patients, analysing the electromyography activity of longissimus muscle (median frequency) and the sustained time during a fatigue test (Ito test).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Low Back Pain Other: Functional elastic tape tensioned Other: Functional elastic tape non-tensioned Other: Rigid Tape Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Individuals with low back pain usually have poor back muscles endurance, which may be improved with the application of Kinesio Taping. The aim of this study is evaluate the effect of Kinesio Taping on back muscle fatigue of low back pain patients. Sixty-four women, between 18 to 50 years old, with chronic nonspecific Low Back Pain will attend this study. They will be randomly assigned in four different groups: control group (CG), KT with tension group (KTT), KT no tension group (KTNT) and Micropore® group (MP) and submitted to three evaluations: pre, three and ten days after intervention, analysing the electromyography activity of longissimus muscle and the sustained time during a fatigue test. The variables analysed during the evaluations will be median frequency (MP) slope of longuissimus muscle and sustained time during the Ito test.
