The course will also provide commonly used taping techniques for specific diagnoses, including cerebral palsy, hemiplegia, torticollis, and brachial plexus injury; as well as pediatric sports related injuries.

 

Specialty Neurological Concepts of the Kinesio Taping® Method: Influencing the Adult Nervous System: 

This course addresses variations in nervous system status. The attendees will develop treatment strategies and practice extensive Kinesio Taping® techniques to address a wide variety of issues encountered when treating patients with neurological diseases. Some examples include: CVA, CP, ALS, MD, MS, and TBI. The course considers other physiological systems which impact patient considerations when working with the trunk and extremities. Developing, recovering, and deteriorating nervous system patients are investigated, strategies planned, and Kinesio Taping techniques practiced.

 

Specialty Concepts Hand Therapy: 

The Hand course is an 8 hour advanced seminar appropriate for practitioners who treat upper extremity/hand problems. The seminar will utilize lecture, lab, and case studies to demonstrate appropriate taping techniques. Assessment of the diagnoses presented will help the student to apply similar techniques to any indicated problem they should encounter in the clinic. According to the acuity of injury, we will utilize techniques to target the most superficial tissues to the deepest.

 

Specialty Lymphatic Concepts of the Kinesio Taping Method: 

The Lymphatic course will address Kinesio Taping Methods for lymphatic and circulatory conditions of the upper and lower extremities through lab and lecture format. It will also address Kinesio Taping Methods for improving breathing, constipation, muscle and posture issues, and other conditions that affect the lymphatic function. Advanced fascial and scar management methods to improve lymphatic flow will be addressed. Advanced swelling management for the initial, collector, and deep lymphatics will also be discussed. 

 

Specialty Sports Orthopedic Concepts of the Kinesio Taping Method: 

During this course, attendees will face problem-solving and specific taping techniques correlated with the healing process of joint and soft tissues, posture correction to provide stimulations to restore good posture for athletes, and lower and upper limb injuries. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to combine the Kinesio Taping Method with specific sport conditions following guidelines learned during this course and developing the skills necessary to adapt Kinesio Taping Techniques to specific needs of athletes. This will enable the attendees to create an individualized treatment correlated to the phase of the healing process as well as the specific sport injury, sport performed, and position that the athlete occupies on the field.
