ABSTRACT

Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of micro currenttaping therapy (MTT) on patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Methods We included 50 participants who met the inclusion criteria and 5 participantsdropped out during the sessions due to the following reasons: 3 participants were personalreasons, 1 participant was taking medication, 1 participant was fore arm fracture. We attached“I” shaped 40 cm, 2 tapes along the erector muscles of the spine starting from bothiliac crest and another “I” shaped 30 cm, 1 tape on the painful site horizontally. This procedurewas done 8 times and participants visited a total of 9 times including a final visit forevaluation. We measured visual analog scale (VAS), range of motion (ROM) and schober’stest on every visit. Participants completed a questionnaire of oswestry disability index (ODI)and Beck’s depression inventory (BDI) on the first and last visits. Results In VAS for pain intensity and bothersomeness, there were significant decreasesafter 1st, 6th treatments. In range of extension, there was significant increase after 3rdtreatment at first. In range of flexion, there was significant increase after 2nd treatment atfirst. In range of left flexion, there was significant increase after 4th treatment at first. Inrange of right flexion, there was significant increase after 3rd treatment at first. in schober’stest, there was significant increase after 2nd treatment at first. In VAS, ROM, schober’stest, BDI, ODI, there were significant improvement after all treatments had done. Conclusions There was a significant effect of MTT on CLBP. And there was no adverseeffect.
