Clinical Trial Summary

The study was planned in a randomized controlled study design to determine the effect of kinesio taping applied to women who gave birth by cesarean section on acute pain, comfort level and breastfeeding behavior. The study will be carried out at Hacettepe University Adult Hospital. The universe of the research will be women who gave birth by cesarean section at Hacettepe University Hospital during the study. Women who are planned for a cesarean section, meet the inclusion criteria and volunteer, will be informed about the practice and will be included in the sample of the research. There will be two groups assigned by the randomization method in the study. It is planned that 24 women will be formed in one of them, 48 women in total. In addition to routine treatment and care, kinesio taping will be applied to women in the intervention group; the control group will receive only routine treatment and care.


Clinical Trial Description

The study was planned in a randomized controlled study design to determine the effect of kinesio taping applied to women who gave birth by cesarean section on acute pain, comfort level and breastfeeding behavior. The study will be carried out at Hacettepe University Adult Hospital. The universe of the research will be women who gave birth by cesarean section at Hacettepe University Adult Hospital during the study. Women who are planned for a cesarean section, meet the inclusion criteria and volunteer, will be informed about the practice and will be included in the sample of the research. There will be two groups assigned by the randomization method in the study. The number of samples to be recruited into the control and intervention groups was determined by a statistician using the G*Power 3.1.9.4 package program, based on studies in Turkish culture and studies evaluating pain and breastfeeding in women who underwent kinesio taping on the abdominal and breast regions, and the sample size was determined by each of the kinesio taping and control groups. It is planned that 24 women will be formed in one of them, 48 women in total. In addition to routine treatment and care, kinesio taping will be applied to women in the intervention group; the control group will receive only routine treatment and care. The data of the research; "Information Form on Descriptive Characteristics", "Breastfeeding Diagnosis and Evaluation Measurement Tool (LATCH)", "Postpartum Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Scale" and "Postpartum Comfort Scale", "Visual Analog Scale (Postpartum Breastfeeding Self-Efficacy Scale)" VAS)'' will be collected using the "Mother Follow-up Form". In the analysis of data; in qualitative variables according to descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, frequency) and normal distribution of data; Chi-square test, Fisher's exact test, numerical variables; Student's t test, Mann Whitney U test, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Kruskal Wallis Analysis will be used. Before and after repeated measurements, one-way analysis of variance or Wilcoxon t test will be used according to the normal distribution. At the end of the research, it is expected that the kinesio taping applied after the cesarean section will make a positive contribution to reducing the pain level of the mother, increasing the success of breastfeeding and improving the comfort level. ;
