Abstract

EFFECT OF KINESIOLOGY TAPING ON DIAPHRAGM IN ASYMPTOMATIC YOUNG MALE SMOKERS

ABSTRACT

Kinesiology taping improves muscle function due to cutaneous stimulation of the sensorimotor and proprioceptive systems. The main aim of the study was to study the effect of kinesiology taping on diaphragm in asymptomatic young male smokers. 24 asymptomatic young male smokers were selected randomly into two groups. Group A was the control group and Group B received kinesiology taping on diaphragm. The outcome measures used were maximum inspiratory pressure (PImax) and range of diaphragmatic excursion. The subjects were assessed prior to intervention on first day and then on seventh day post intervention. The results show that the study carried out using these interventions is not significant statistically, largely due to a small sample size. But, clinically, these interventions have shown positive prognostic results. Thus, we can conclude that kinesiology taping on diaphragm has clinically positive prognostic effects on diaphragm muscle performance.

Keywords: Kinesiology Taping, Diaphragm, Asymptomatic Young Male Smokers.
