The article discusses a case of a physiotherapist who suffered from severe Back Pain because of lifting, transferring, repetitive movement, and physical load, as well as the effectiveness of (KT) kinsio-tape all over spine as in any management of such work - related LBP.
Materials and Methods: KT is been placed across the trunk for three consecutive days, for approximately ten hours per day. KT was performed to internal oblique, latissimus dorsi, rectus abdominis, and all muscles of erector spinae, which are stimulated during the loading process, and the pliability was satisfactory
Results: The Oswestry Disability Questionnaire and visual analog scale Scores slowly reduce pain, enhance joint stability, strengthen weak muscles, and assist in postural alignment after KT application.
Conclusion: As an outcome, sustained usage of KT all over trunk may be used as an additional therapeutic approach for LBP in acute stage between physiotherapists, allowing for sustained patient transfer without restricting work activities as result of vocational LBP, Moreover, KT may be helpful in clinical management of occupational LBP in many occupations that enhance and improve large loads.
