ABSTRACT Demirci C. Effects of trunk stabilization exercises and kinesio taping application on trunk control and upper extremity function in adult muscle diseases. Hacettepe University Institute of Health Sciences, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Program, Doctorate Thesis, Ankara 2015. This study was planned to investigate the effects of trunk stabilization exercises and kinesio taping application on trunk control and upper extremity functions in adult muscle diseases. In the study, 16 individuals with a mean age of 33,25 ±12,99 years were included in the trunk stabilization exercise group and 16 individuals with a mean age of 34,06 ±12,81 years were included in the trunk stabilization + kinesio taping group. Individuals were taken into the trunk stabilization exercise program 3 days per week for 8 weeks. Stabilization group was treated with trunk stabilization and strenghtening exercises while kinesiotaping group was treated with kinesiotaping application in addition to stabilization exercises twice a week. Individuals were assessed three times; before treatment, in 4. week and in 8. week of treatment. After the demographic data were recorded, pain and fatique severity was assessed with visual analog scale, muscle strength of trunk and hip muscles with manual muscle test, trunk control with trunk impairment scale, balance with functional reach test, lower trunk stabilization with bridging test, activity limitations with activlim, manual ability with abilhand and upper extremity stabilization with Minnesota manual dexterity test. At the end of the study, there has been significant improvements in pain, fatique, trunk control, balance, lower trunk stabilization, activity limitations and upper extremity stabilization (p<0,05) in both groups. There has been improvement in all muscle strength in stabilization + kinesiotaping group while there has been no change in back extensors, trunk lateral flexors and left hip extensors in stabilization group (p>0,05). Trunk stabilization group is superior than the stabilization+taping group only in manual ability assessment (p<0,05). Groups were similar in the other assessment results (p>0,05). In conclusion, trunk stabilization exercises should take place in routine management of neuromuscular diseases and kinesiotaping could be used as a supportive application.
