dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of edema, pain, and range of motion of knee by sterile kinesio taping within 3 days after ACLR. We hypothesized that sterile taping which is a new material of kinesio taping reduces knee pain and swelling and improves knee range of movement after ACLR. Fifty-sixth subjects who underwent an elective ACLR with were randomized into intervention(n=28) and control groups(n=28). Subjects from both groups received standardized postoperative physiotherapy. Pain by VAS, total ROM of the knee, and circumferential girth were measured at the first, second- and third-day post-surgery. There were found statistically significant differences in all study parameters within each group. Comparison of the study parameters between both groups revealed a statistical significance at various time points except the reduction of pain in the taping group in the early postoperative phase (between the first and second day) (P<0.05). There was no statistical significance in the reduction of swelling or improvement of knee total ROM with kinesio taping. This study showed that sterile kinesio taping reduced pain, improved ROM of the knee and decreased edema in the early post-operative period after ACLR.en_US
