They were received kinesio tape technique on the affected wrist for 3 days, then day off and then another 3 days of kinesio tape / week for 4 weeks. Median motor distal latency (MMDL) was performed before and after the treatment program for all patients. The obtained results showed statistically highly significant (P< 0.0001) improvement in median motor distal latency at the end of the treatment program. Accordingly, it could be concluded that the use of the kinesio tape was found to be effective in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome during pregnancy.
