Neuromuscular Taping to Spasticity and Postural Stability on Post Stroke

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Stroke is a disruption of blood vascularization system in the brain that causes neurological dysfunction. Stroke can cause damage to brain tissue clinically within a relatively long time and is the most common cause of physical disability such as the emergence of spasticity and decreased postural stability. Neuromuscular Taping (NMT) is one method of therapy with the principles of biomechanical stimulation of compression and decompression to obtain a positive effect on musculoskeletal, neurology, vascular and lymphatic systems. NMT application level effects on the muscles which can improve muscle tone, increase muscle contraction, reduce the excessive muscle contraction, stabilizes fascia, reduce pain, and improve joint movement Objective: This study aimed to look at the effect of the installation of Neuromuscular Taping on postural stability and decreased spasticity in post-stroke patients Method: This study is a quasi-experimental using pre-test and post-test without control group design to analyze the effect of NMT applications in post-stroke patients. NMT interventions was done 2x a week for 1 month. Evaluation used Ashworth scale to the level of spasticity and photos before and after a month the application to see the improvement of postural stability Result: a description of the image before and after application of NMT for 1 month showed a decrease in spasticity in the hand and improved postural stability Conclusion: Application Neuromuscular Taping on the posterior neck, shoulder fan, flexor and extensor hand, posterior lumbar, tibialis anterior and soles of the feet can reduce spasticity in the hands of postural stability and improve post-stroke patients.
