The Fundamentals of Therapeutic and Kinesiology Taping

Improve your effectiveness in hundreds of clinical conditions with a rehabilitative taping technique that is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric. Kinesiology taping facilitates the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting movement. Its ability to lift the skin off the neuraland sensory receptors provides therapeutic benefit that can be worn for several days. The effects can include enhancing muscle function, improving circulation, providing pain relief, and repositioning of a subluxed joint.

Through an integrated format of lecture and hands-onlabs, you will review the evidence for therapeutic and kinesiology taping, and learn specific taping protocols thatcan be quickly integrated into practice. Kinesiology tape can be a valuable clinical tool used in conjunction with other treatments and modalities to have immediate positive effectson movement and performance, while reducing pain and improving clinical outcomes for your clients and patients
