Read the study by kinesiology taping (Taping NeuroMuscular) teacher and researcher David Blow in this article. The research dealt with the effect of tape on pain, oedema, ROM and cognitive skills as part of the rehabilitation process, after surgery for a new knee (TKR). NeuroSky®, an EEG/BCI sensor, was used to measure the results.

A practical example is also shared by Katrien Nackaerts, physiotherapist from Bocholt (Belgium). Through the pictures it is clearly visible which positive effect the application of LymfTape has after a knee operation.

Practice has shown that by applying CureTape® almost immediately after surgery in the form of lymphatic strips, swelling, bruising and pain are reduced and the recovery process is accelerated.

Conclusion: The objective of this study was to investigate treatment options for improving post-surgical rehabilitation creating faster track protocols for an ever increasing joint prosthetic population. This study has underlined significantly improved reduction of edema and pain in a rehabilitation context and allowed us to hypothesize the effects generated by a decompressive tape application (NMT) upon circuits delegated to the cognitive-attentional processing of stimuli.

Case study: Lymph tape post-operative in a new knee

The operation is performed under “blood emptying”. A tight band around the thigh ensures that the leg is kept empty of blood, so that the structures are clearly visible during the operation. Complications that may arise are bruising and swelling of the entire leg. Pain and movement restriction then hamper the recovery process.

Physiotherapist Katrien Nackaerts wants to share with us how successful lymphatic taping can be after knee surgery. Katrien treats a male client of 55 years who has had a new knee. The therapy starts five days after the operation. Complaints: client has a swollen leg with a large haematoma, becomes nauseous and dizzy from the pain when standing up, even fainting.

Start of treatment (5 days after surgery). VAS 9/10 and 78° of flexion.

Lymph tape application by laying grid, with stretching on the tape (not on the anchors), over the haematoma. The black CureTape is used to prevent the ends from coming loose.

Result after 4 days with CureTape. Clear reduction in both swelling and hematoma. VAS 1/10 and 95° of flexion, the skin feels supple, movement is more natural.
