Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping is a rehabilitative technique that uses elastic tape to apply gentle pressure to the skin. This pressure can help to improve circulation, reduce pain, and support the muscles and joints. Kinesiology taping is often used to treat a variety of conditions, including muscle strains, tendonitis, and joint pain.

What is Kinesiology Taping?

Neuromuscular Taping Specialist” course is a rehabilitative technique that can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments and modalities to provide various therapeutic benefits. This course will review the history of neuromuscular taping, current research related to its therapeutic effects, and discuss the contraindications vs. the pathophysiology of conditions that can be treated with this method.Participants will understand the physiological effects of neuromuscular taping and the different qualities that distinguish neuromuscular taping brands from one another. The lab portion of the course will allow participants to gain extensive hands-on practice to optimize proper application and understand the role of each and every treatment protocol. Participants will demonstrate mastery of over 30 treatment protocols for various conditions at every distinct location on the body.
