Samenvatting

Objective: Medical taping claims to have positive effects on circulation, muscle function, correction, proprioception, and pain. Since there are no published reviews to the authors knowledge so far, the quantity and quality of available literature is unclear. This review of literature, is the first attempt to report current level of the available evidence about medical taping, and secondly, its efficacy. Methods: Computerized bibliographic databases (PubMed, PEDro, Cochrane Library, Medline, Cinahl, Google Scholar, Trip Database, and National Guideline Clearinghouse) were searched up to 28th November 2009. Two reviewers conducted study selection, data extraction, categorization, and methodological quality assessment. Results: The search revealed 200 possibly interesting articles from which 17 articles were used to make final conclusions. Methodological quality assessment was carried out and articles were distributed over five categories: Circulatory (n = 3) with a grade B recommendation, Muscle Function (n = 9) with a grade A recommendation, Correction (n = 1) with a grade E of recommendation, Pain (n = 5) with grade A recommendation, and Proprioception (n = 2) with a grade D recommendation. Conclusion: Moderate evidence level suggest medical taping has positive effect for Circulatory disorders; Strong evidence show a tendency for positive change in Muscle Function; too little evidence was found to suggest positive effects on Correction; contradictory evidence was found in the field of Proprioception ; Pain reducing effect is supported by strong evidence.
