Ankle Kinesio Taping vs Mulligan Mobilization With Movement

2018-08-09 17:25:22 | BioPortfolio


The aim of the study is to compare the effects of Kinesio taping and Mulligan's mobilization with movement technique on balance, muscle strength and flexibility in healthy ankles . Patients will randomly be divided into 4 groups: Kinesio taping (KT) group, sham Kinesio taping (SKT) group, Mulligan's mobilization with movement (MWM) group and sham mobilization with movement (SMWM) group . Kinesiotape will be applied both ankles as "Correction technique" in KT group, 'Posterolateral glide mobilization with movement' will be applied 10 times to both ankles in MWM group. The evaluations will be repeated after waiting 45 minutes to reveal the effects of Kinesio taping and Mulligan mobilization with movement.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Adhesive tape with the mechanical strength to resist stretching. It is applied to the skin to support, stabilize, and restrict movement to aid healing and/or prevent injuries of MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM.

Recording of information on magnetic or punched paper tape.

The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.

LIPOLYSIS of stored LIPIDS in the ADIPOSE TISSUE to release FREE FATTY ACIDS. Mobilization of stored lipids is under the regulation of lipolytic signals (CATECHOLAMINES) or anti-lipolytic signals (INSULIN) via their actions on the hormone-sensitive LIPASE. This concept does not include lipid transport.

The act, process, or result of passing from one place or position to another. It differs from LOCOMOTION in that locomotion is restricted to the passing of the whole body from one place to another, while movement encompasses both locomotion but also a change of the position of the whole body or any of its parts. Movement may be used with reference to humans, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and microorganisms. Differentiate also from MOTOR ACTIVITY, movement associated with behavior.
