Analyse de pratiques sur les modalités d’utilisation des bandes de Kinesio Tape dans la rééducation des lésions musculaires des sportifs par les masseurs kinésithérapeutes français

Abstract : The Kinesio Tape is a recent and popular tool thanks to sportsmen exposing themselves with it during importants competitions. Muscle injuries are a very common sports injury. Many physiotherapists use Kinesio Tape as a rehabilitation tool, although the evidence on the physiological effectiveness of the procedure is contradictory. Purpose: the objective of this study is to asses if there is a consensus on the use of Kinesiotape on sports injuries and to understand the discrepancy between the high frequency of use and the lack of evidence on the subject. Methods : a two-stage method was used. Firstly, semi-structured interviews were conducted to explore the ways in which the Kinesio Tape is used and to propose answers for the second part of the method, the survey, which was sent exclusively to the physotherapists trained in the method in order to favour qualitative rather than quantitative data. Results: The 85 physiotherapists who responded to the questionnaire agreed that there was a consensus on the main types of fixtures used, on the use or not of the colour variable and on the tape tension to be applied in some fixtures but not in others. However, there was disagreement on whether the tool was patient dependent, on each person's opinion of the literature and on the modes of action of Kinesio Tape. Conclusion : we notice that not all the physiotherapists, although trained in the method, agree on all the modalities of use. As for the discrepancy between the frequency of use and the lack of evidence, it can be explained by the fact that the physiotherapists rely on the placebo effect and that they rely more on their personal convictions than on scientific articles.
