As we’ve previously covered in our #TapeTuesday series, lower back kinesiology taping can be an effective way to manage low back pain. The Academy has several research references and techniques on kinesiology taping for lower back pain. This week, Matt Redd ATC, Assistant Athletic Trainer for the University of Florida expands on this idea and shares another low back kinesiology taping technique.
