Effects of kinesio taping on functional performance test with chronic ankle instability in collegiate basketball player


Chronic ankle Instability is characterized by recurrent giving way and often develops after repeated lateral ankle sprains.Kinesiotape is more elastic than traditional athletic tape and is becoming increasingly popular. It is reported to decrease pain, improve muscle function, circulation and proprioception, however, research examining the effects of Kinesiotape in chronic ankle instability is limited. The purpose of this study was to determine if applying Kinesiotape to chronic unstable ankle may improve performance in the five functional tests -figure-of-8 hop test, side-hop test, square hop test ,single hop test, and 6 meter cross over test, which has been shown to be a sensitive and reliable measure for measuring functional performance, neuromuscular coordination, and joint stability.
