Özet

Introduction: Rib fractures, which are among the most common injuries in blunt thoracic trauma, are usually encountered in Emergency Departments. Kinesiotape (KT) is a drug-free elastic therapeutic tape used for treating various musculoskeletal problems such as injury, dysfunction and pain. We aimed to investigate whether kinesotaping should be used safely and effectively in rib fractures in emergency setting.
