Lower back pain can be a very nagging injury with multiple possible causes. Taping of the back is done for pain reduction and overall joint support while training. Additionally, reduction of acute swelling has been seen with various taping techniques with kinesiology tape. Skin contact with tape allows for nervous system support and increased awareness of treatment area.
No muscles are being supported with tape, rather, skin to affect mechanoreception.
