MIGUELES-VAZQUEZ, Urbano; DA CUNA-CARRERA, Iria; ALONSO-CALVETE, Alejandra  y  GONZALEZ-GONZALEZ, Yoana. Efectiveness of kinesiotape on carpal tunnel syndrome. A systematic review. Rev Asoc Esp Espec Med Trab [online]. 2022, vol.31, n.1, pp.100-118.  Epub 23-Mayo-2022. ISSN 1132-6255.

Background and aim:

The aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review of the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) using kinesiotape (KT).

Material and Methods:

A literature search was conducted in September 2021 in Cochrane, Medline, PubMed and Cinahl.


Fifty-two articles were found, 11 of which met the established selection criteria, and 2 articles were located in the manual search. They analyze the improvement of CTS in KT treatment versus alternative non-invasive treatments.


there appears to be evidence that KT may be an effective technique for the treatment of CTS. However, due to the limitations of the studies, further research with larger numbers of patients and long-term follow-up is needed.

Palabras clave : neuromuscular taping; carpal tunnel syndrome; physical therapy.
