Answer

A study by Homayouni et al reported that in patients with pes anserine tendinobursitis, pain and swelling can be better reduced with kinesiotaping than with a combination of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) naproxen and physical therapy. The study compared kinesiotaping with treatment consisting of 250 mg of naproxen three times per day for 10 days plus 10 daily physical therapy sessions, with pain and swelling measured with the visual analog scale (VAS) and ultrasonography, respectively.
