The effects of kinesio taping on pain from patellar and achilles tendonitis in cyclists Case Study Full Name: The Effects of Kinesio Taping on Pain from Patellar and Achilles Tendonitis in Cyclists By: Burke WS - University of Southern California   Emphasis of Presentation: Kinesio taping on Pain for Achilles Tendonitis and for Patellar Tendonitis; The process of clinical research and some of the difficulties in collecting the data.   Purpose: The hypothesis was that Kinesio Tape would give riders with tendonitis at the knee or ankle significant relief of pain and that the riders would be able to continue to cycle on the following days without an increase in pain.   Method: Kinesio Tape was applied to bicyclists by a physical therapist who had completed two Kinesio Taping courses. Pain was measured both before and after the taping procedure.   Results: In the 7 cyclists who suffered from patellar tendonitis and in 7 subjects with Achilles tendonitis, there was a statistically significant difference in the immediate pain levels. All the subjects who were taped were also able to resume biking the following days and were able to complete the entire ride.   Conclusions: These results show a strong trend toward pain relief with Kinesio Tape treatment. Future studies are anticipated to compare the results of the Kinesio Taping Method to other treatments and to generate a greater number of participants.
