||Background: There is not much scientific evidence available about this application of kinesiotaping (KNT) due to it being a new and recent technique of application in physiotherapy world. This study is pioneer in demonstrating the effectiveness of KNT in shortening deadlines of recuperation time after a cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery. Objectives: To demonstrate the capacity of KNT to recover the correct muscular tone in hamstrings and this make a reduction in recovery times after an ACL surgery in athletes. Material and methods: Selected for this randomised clinical trial multicentre a total of 36 patients, all of them athletes and that have had suffered and ACL surgery, divided randomly in two different groups (1) conventional treatment + KNT and (2) conventional treatment + placebo taping. Variables to analyse will be measured at the beginning of the treatment, every month, and from fifth month every week until treatment is finished. Expected results: patients who are established in group two treatment (KNT) reflect better results concerning functionality range joint motion, pain, and above all recovery deadline. With these possible results we could define KNT as an adequate technique for the ACL treatment to reduce recovery time in athletes.
