Summary of "Immediate effects of kinesiology tape on the pain and gait function in older adults with knee osteoarthritis."

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease that not only causes knee pain in older adults, but also has an adverse effect on walking. Therefore, intervention for older patients with OA is important. To investigate the immediate effects of kinesiology taping (KT) on the pain and gait function of the older adults with knee OA.
