ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study regarding efficacy of knee tape in the management of osteoarthritis of the knee, published in the 2003 issue of "British Medical Journal." For this study 29 patients were allocated to therapeutic knee taping (TKT), control tape, or no tape. TKT provided medial glide, medial tilt, and anteroposterior tilt to the patella. Control tape aimed to provide sensory input only. At 3 weeks, reduction in pain was greater in the TKT group than in the control or no-tape group. At 6 weeks, reduction in pain on most aggravating activity was greater in the TKT group than in the no-tape and control groups.
