Course Description:

DAY 1: KINESIOLOGY TAPING PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION

From sports medicine to stroke rehab, kinesiology tape has rapidly gained popularity in rehabilitation due to its unique ability to improve movement and function. One of the most versatile treatment tools in rehab, taping has been shown to improve outcomes with a vast variety of therapies, including functional movement therapies, manual therapy, splinting, Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NTD), Hippo- and Aquatic Therapies, and more.

This hands-on certification seminar will equip you with all the skills you’ll need to begin taping patients across the continuum of care. Explore the fundamentals of modern taping techniques, discover advanced interventions that integrate the latest neuroscience research, and learn how to combine taping with functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatments that are revolutionizing rehab. Numerous case studies will be presented that demonstrate how taping can help deliver superior rehab outcomes, and hands-on labs throughout the program will show you how to get impressive results with your patients.
