Taping science update 

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on are updated regularly over the years (see updates page).

Today I was going to summarize a couple recent reviews of therapeutic taping — spoiler alert: it doesn’t work very well — but then I saw that Nick Ng of Massage & Fitness Magazine already has it covered, thoroughly: “What Does Current Evidence Say About the Effectiveness of Kinesio Taping?

Nick includes a bunch of expert perspective, too, which is something he does extremely well (and which I do not do very well). I really admire that. Nick clearly does not hesitate to go ask experts and clinicians what they think, and he quotes them extensively in his articles. Very journalistic of him! I should follow his example more.
