Kinesiology Taping for Orthopedic Conditions - Saturday, July 20th, 2024, 4:00pm-8:00pm ET

$116

Description:

Kinesiology taping is redefining the role of therapeutic taping for rehabilitation professionals. Taping was once used to physically hold structures in place; now kinesiology taping is used to influence fascia and underlying neural tissues to cause functional changes in both the local tissue as well as the central nervous system. Often relegated to the athletic world, kinesiology taping has many orthopedic, neurological, pediatric, geriatric, and other specialty applications. Course content will include orthopedic assessment, adjunctive manual therapies, and kinesiology taping for joint mobility and stability applications.
