Abstract

About 80 % of adults feel pain in their backs at a definite moment of life. That’s also the most frequent reason why people lose their efficiency. It’s also the key factor due to which workable people miss their working days. Recently, the frequency of sickness rate of low back pain syndrome is getting higher and higher. For examples, according to the data of the organization, which aims at analyzing pathological conditions and diseases, which cause death or looseness of efficiency, in 1990 in the USA, low back pain syndrome took the sixth place, but in 2010 back pain went up to the third place, giving the way only to ischemic heart disease (IHD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). So, we can imagine how common, widespread and serious for modern world became the problem of back pain. That’s why, only now doctors throughout the world are starting to form their separate individual researches into one qualitative and useful list of recommendations to begin an effective fight with this serious medical and social problem. Kinesiotaping (“kinesio” – movement + “tape”) – is an effective treatment and rehabilitation method of muscle and joints injuries with the help of special elastic tapes – namely kinesio tapes. The article focuses on the method of kinesiotaping and the ways of its usage for treating low back pain syndrome. The research also highlights the history of appearance and development of kinesiotaping as a method of treatment, physiological features of kinesio tape and ways of its usage in everyday medical practice. Besides analyzing recent researches in this field we provide descriptions of three clinical cases from our own medical practice which proves the effectiveness of kinesiotaping in the complex treatment of low back pain syndrome. After deep analysis of the patients’ condition we can state that due to kinesiotaping which is used together with other physiotherapeutic methods and exercises, they recover quickly than those who do not undergo kinesiotaping procedures.
