Course Description:

Day 1: Kinesiology Taping Practitioner Certification explores the fundamentals of modern taping techniques through a full day of interactive labs. Learn how to combine taping and functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatment strategies that are revolutionizing rehab. Practice treatments you can use the next day for pain, posture, edema, scars and neurological symptoms.

Day 2: Advanced Kinesiology Taping Practitioner Certification builds on the fundamentals with innovative applications that integrate the latest neuroscience research. Master advanced treatments that utilize myofascial pathways to address common sports injuries and improve athletic performance.
Objectives:

Kinesiology Taping Practitioner Certification
  • Review the principles and physiological/neurological effects of kinesiology taping.
  • Discuss how to apply tape with appropriate tension for best results, comparing common taping techniques and reviewing indications/contraindications for each.
  • Demonstrate taping techniques for reducing pain.
  • Demonstrate taping techniques for managing edema, swelling, and bruising.
  • Demonstrate taping techniques for addressing nerve entrapments.
  • Demonstrate taping techniques for correcting postural imbalances
  • Demonstrate taping techniques for reducing scarring and improving scar mobility.
  • Develop taping applications based on your assessment/treatment approach and the individual needs of your patient.
Advanced Kinesiology Taping Practitioner Certification
  • Review fascial chain anatomy and function.
  • Discuss the concept of the longitudinal muscle chain approach to kinesiology taping and a myofascial sequencing model of “Taping movements, not muscles”.
  • Demonstrate movement screening techniques to evaluate proper human movement patterns. In the presence of faulty movement patterns, the plane of dysfunction movement is identified and movement is corrected using the longitudinal muscle chain approach to kinesiology taping.
  • Discuss the kinetic chain approach to kinesiology taping.
  • Apply movement screening techniques for identifying faulty motor patterns.
  • Compare taping techniques for enhancing faulty motor patterns in breathing, squatting, lunging, stepping, pushing, and rolling movements.
  • Demonstrate advanced taping strategies to neuromuscular retraining of performance chains.
  • Combine taping, movement, assessment, and corrective exercises to address common sports injuries and enhance athletic performance.
