Objectives
[+] [-] 020647 - Kinesiology Taping Practitioner Certification
  1. Review the principles of kinesiology taping and supporting evidence
  2. Describe the physiological and neurological effects of kinesiology taping
  3. Demonstrate how to apply tape with appropriate tension for best results
  4. Compare and contrast common taping techniques and review indications/contraindications for each
  5. Demonstrate how taping techniques can be combined with movement to improve patient function, correct postural imbalances, reduce pain, prevent injury, and support recovery with many common conditions
