Effects of Kinesio Taping on Venous Symptoms, Bioelectrical Activity of the Gastrocnemius Muscle, Range of Ankle Motion, and Quality of Life in Postmenopausal Women With Chronic Venous Insufficiency: A Randomized Controlled Trial


A water-resistant wave-pattern adhesive tape was employed in both groups for KT procedures. The experimental group received taping with 3 strips according to the recommendations of Kase et al. The initial application to enhance GM activation used 2 Y-shaped strips in external gastrocnemius (EG) and internal gastrocnemius (IG) muscles. Individuals were in a prone position for the KT application. The tape direction was from origin to insertion at tensions ranging from 15% to 50%. For placement of the I-strip to promote dorsiflexion, the individual was placed in a supine position for KT functional correction of the ankle, making a bridge with 50% tension.
