INTRODUCTION Taping has become a widely used rehabilitation modality for the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions (Thelen et al 2008). Kinaesthetic tape (KT) is a new therapeutic tool, and has become increasingly popular within the sporting arena. KT was developed in 1996 by Kenzo Kase, with the intention to alleviate pain (Liu et al 2007) and improve healing in soft tissues (Kahanov 2007). The growing popularity of KT can be attributed, in some respects, to anecdotal support for its therapeutic benefit. However the research surrounding KT is still in its infancy and the scientific evidence to support its use and effects is still being established (Thelen et al 2008, Zajt-Kwiatkowska et al 2007).
