A. Triceps Surae: two joint muscle
1. Medial head of the Gastrocnemius
2. Lateral head of the Gastrocnemius

Interview by MaryLynn Williams
Bart Belew (head athletic trainer at UTM): Believes that 85% that find relief in the tape is mental and it is most commonly used on hamstrings.

How does kinesio tape help the shoulder?
Realigns joints for smoother movements.
Provides continuous blood flow by lifting of the skin.
Creates more space to eliminate extra fluids from affected areas.

Injuries that benefit from kinesio tape

Rotator Cuff Tears
Shoulder Bursitis
Pinched Nerve
Shoulder Dislocation
Overuse Injuries

Called the Tibiofemoral joint
Classified as a ginglymus joint
because it functions as a hinge
which allows for the
following joint motions

Muscles Involved
Functions of Kinesio Taping for the Ankle
1. Decrease inflammation and pressure on mechanical
2. Enhance fluid exchange between tissue layers
3. Reduce edema
4. Decrease stress on the ligaments and tendons that are damaged
5. To improve the proprioception of
the ankle
Skeletal System and Bones Involved
Axial Skeletal System
Vertebral Column consists of 24 articulating vertebrae
7 Cervical vertebrae
12 Thoracic vertebrae
5 Lumbar vertebrae

Sacrum and Coccyx

Most Common Injury with Bicep
Muscles Involved
Biceps Tendonitis
Pain in the region of the anterior shoulder located over the bicipital groove, occasionally radiating down to the elbow.
The pain is often aggravated by shoulder flexion, forearm supination, and/or elbow flexion.
Erector Spinae: Largest muscle group, made of nine muscle segments
Extension of spine and head
Anterior pelvic rotation
Lateral flexion of spine and head
Lateral pelvic rotation to contralateral side
Ipsilateral pelvic rotation of spine and head
Benefits of taping the Bicep
Mechanics of Movement
The Truth about the Color

Bones Involved
Muscular Control of Movement & Movement Assessment

Supraspinous ligaments- at the tips of spinous processes
Interspinous ligaments- at the base of the spinous processes
Intertransverse ligaments- at the transverse processes

Proper way to tape
for Patellar Dislocation
Muscles involved:
Large abdominal muscles: rectus abdominis, external oblique abdominal, internal oblique abdominal
Quadratus lumborum: lateral flexion and lumbar extension
Psoas major and minor: flexion

Adds support to the muscle or tendon
lengthens the bicep muscle
Relieve pressure from the area
may increase circulation
Joint Motion and Articular System
Arthrodial or Gliding-type joint
Limited gliding movements
Located between and adhering to the articular cartilage of the vertebral bodies are the intervertebral disks
Allows compression in all directions

Joint action for Lumbar Spine:
Lumbar flexion
Lumbar extension
Lumbar lateral flexion
Lumbar rotation unilaterally

Muscles Involved
Knee Extensors: Rectus Femoris
Knee Flexors: Sartoius, Biceps Femoris,
Semitendinsis, Semimembranosus, Gracilis, Gastrocnemius

Quadricep Muscle also acts
as a pully allowing greater mechanical movement
Benefits of Kinesio Tape
Improvement in ODI (Oswestry Disability Index)
Improvement in ROM (range of motion)
Reduces pressure
Increases lymphatic circulation
Pain reduction for people suffering from CLBP
Improvement in muscular function

Rectus Femoris and Vastus Intermedius attach to the patella
2008 Beijing Olympics
1. If the patella is tracking laterally, extend the leg to an 180 degree angle
2. Take your tape, place it over the patella and pull the tape medially
3. From there, take another piece of tape, and anchor it in the center of the patella and track vertically up the Vastus Lateralis to the origin of the quadriceps muscle
4. Take a third piece of tape, anchor it again in teh center of the patella, then track vertically up the vastus medialis towards the origin of the quadricep
1. If the patella is tracking medially, extend the leg to an 180 degree angle
2. Take your tape, place it over the patella and pull the tape laterally
3. From there, take another piece of tape, and anchor it in the center of the patella and track vertically up the Vastus Lateralis to the origin of the quadriceps muscle
4. Take a third piece of tape, anchor the tape in the center of the patella and again track vertically up the vastus medialis towards the origin of the quadricep
Lateral Dislocation
Medial Dislocation
Interview: Matt Lewis
Kinesio tape is placed on the lumbar region of the back for pain reduction and support
Lumbar is a less common area for kinesio tape
Used for a psychological stand-point

All three are affected, with most importance being on the Talocrural Joint.

These movements are considered Arthrokinematic movements.
Floyd, R.T. Manual of Structural Kinesiology. 18th ed. New York: McGraw-Hill, 2012. Print.
Studies have shown that patellar taping results in reduced pain in some patients versus patients with no application of the tape.

Short-term patellar taping seemed to alleviate some pain in participants.

Researchers are still doing studies to figure out the long term benefits of patellar taping
