BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to analyze and compare the effect of ACL Kinesio Taping technique (ACL-KT) on knee joint biomechanics during a drop vertical jump (DVJ) paired with a pre-post shuttle run exercise.
METHODS: Twenty healthy male participants performed a DVJ in both ACL-KT and placebo (PT) conditions at pre- and post-shuttle run. All data were collected with 3-D motion analysis. An SPM Two-way repeated ANOVA was used to compare knee joint angles and moments in three directions during the DVJ for comparison among conditions and pre-post shuttle run exercise. The kinematic data showed a significant effect in decreasing knee abduction angle between 50% to 55% of the time (P=0.026) and knee rotation angle during take-off (P≤0.048), and there was an exercise effect on knee rotation angle over approximately 70 and 90% of the stance phase (P≤0.047).
RESULTS: Kinetic data showed a taping effect on knee rotation moment (P=0.039) at the first 5% of stance time and there was a significant exercise effect (P≤0.023) between 0 to 37% of the stance phase. The results of this study support an ACL-KT effect on reducing knee abduction angle and knee rotation moment during a DVJ in healthy participants.
CONCLUSIONS: Therefore, ACL-KT may be a useful intervention for reducing risk of ACL injury.
