Efficacy Of 3 Therapeutic Taping Configurations For Children With Brachial Plexus Birth Palsy

Conclusions: Rhomboid taping cannot be recommended for treatment of children with BPBP. Both trapezius and combined taping approaches reduced scapular winging, but HT CBA was limited with combined taping.

Resting posture improved, but performance of the positions was not significantly improved.
