Our research shows no strong evidence regarding the use of elastic taping for pain improvement in patients with primary knee osteoarthritis, read more in "Medicine" Proud to help Evidence-Based Practice
What is known?
A growing number of patients with knee OA seek to be treated with Elastic taping without clear evidence of efficiency.
What is new?
Our systematic review shows that elastic taping has a limited effect on the WOMAC score, and studies showing a more substantial effect have important biases. Although ET does not provide strong adverse outcomes, our data do not support the use of ET as a treatment alone because of too slight reductions of the WOMAC score for reaching clinical efficiency
