Abstract
This study aimed to compare the effects of kinesiotaping and neuromuscular electric stimulation (NMES)on pain, and motor activity and function in patients with upper extremity hemiplegia. A total of 67 outpatients who acquired ischemic stroke with the upper extremity involvement were enrolled in the study. The patients were randomly assigned to an NMES group, a kinesiotape implementation group, and a control group in addition to physiotherapy. Treatment duration was 4 weeks. Motor Activity Log- 28, Fugl–Meyer Sensorimotor Assessment Scale (FM), and visual analog scale (VAS) were used for the assessment. A significant improvement in FM (taping group, p ≤ 0.001; NMES, p ≤ 0.001; control group, p ≤ 0.001) and motor activity scores was found in all groups, although this effect was superior in function for the taping group (p = 0.027). A significant decrease was found in the pain intensity both at rest (taping group: P ≤ 0.007; NMES: P ≤ 0.014), and with activity for the taping and NMES groups (taping: p≤ 0.010; NMES: p≤ 0.016), whereas no significant decrease was found in the control group either at rest or with activity (p = 0.054 for both). No reverse effect was reported. Data suggested that all treatment options were effective on motor activity and pain but kinesiotaping seemed to have a superior effect on function.
