Functional Taping for Musculoskeletal Injuries is a 12 hour hands on course designed to demonstrate pre-taping functional evaluation to determine which taping technique to be used and to ensure a functional change when applied. Several different taping techniques will be demonstrated and used on number of musculoskeletal injuries of the spine, upper extremity, and lower extremity.
Taping techniques to be demonstrated include Tim Brown’s Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping, Kinesiotaping, Spider Tech pre-cuts, and neuroproprioceptive techniques. Injuries to be treated with these taping procedures include disc herniations, postural disorders, tendinopathy of upper and lower extremity, ligament sprains of the upper and lower extremity, edema reduction, and joint laxities.
All procedures will be applicable to the athlete, geriatric and general patient population with proper coding according to the ACA discussed, as well as the newest research and physiology on taping procedures.
