Faculty members in the Division of Physical Therapy are conducting research on the therapeutic benefits of using kinesiology tape.
Associate Professor William Hanney is a co-author on “The Efficacy and Treatment Fidelity of Kinesiology Taping in Conjunction with Conservative Treatment Interventions Among Individuals With Shoulder Pain: A Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis” published in the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy.
Assistant Professor Carey Rothschild is the lead author on “The Effect of Kinesio Tape on Lower Extremity Kinematics and Muscle Activation During a Unilateral Squat,” published in the Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Practice magazine. Members of the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy can view this publication.
Hanney, Rothschild and Sheila Klausner, an assistant professor and a board-certified clinical specialist in the physical therapy clinic, spoke about the research and perceptions surrounding the use of the tape ahead of the 2020 summer Tokyo Olympics in a video, now available on YouTube.
