Kinesio Taping for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Case Study Full Name: Children with Cerebral Palsy Improve Sitting with Kinesio Taping By: Özge Özkaya, PhD   Summary: For the study, researchers randomly divided the children into three groups and employed NDT to all of the children four times a week for four weeks. Children in the first group (control group) did not receive any other therapy, while children in the second group received KT, and children in the third group received NMES. The team then analyzed the sitting ability of the children using the gross motor function measure (GMFM) as well as their kyphosis levels. The authors found that sitting ability and kyphosis improved in all children. The improvement was more prominent in both the KT and NMES groups compared to the control group. The NMES group showed the best improvement. 1/2 Researchers concluded that KT or NMES application for four weeks in addition to NDT can effectively improve sitting ability and kyphosis in children with cerebral palsy, and that NMES is more effective than KT. According to the team, future studies should focus on the combination of KT and NMES with different rehabilitation modalities in different groups of children with cerebral palsy
