John Gibbons is a registered Osteopath, Lecturer and Author and is discussing how to assess pain to the lumbar spine, as this can come from many structures like the Disc (L4/5 or L5/S1), facet joint, erector spinal muscles, quadratus lumborum muscles, spinal stenosis etc. He then demonstrates how to apply Kinesiology Tape to this area using Rocktape Big Daddy tape.
