Fundamental Concepts & Corrective Techniques of the Kinesio® Taping Method
The two-day course is designed to introduce participants to the science, assessment and step-by-step application techniques of the Kinesio® Taping Method. The first day includes lecture tutorials of the history and development of Kinesio Tex® Tapes and the Kinesio® Taping Method. The science and theory regarding how stimulus is transmitted through the skin and the resulting therapeutic benefit is reviewed. Taping concepts are presented in a “superficial to deep” progression. Day one includes corrections for Epidermis, Dermis, Superficial and Deep Fascia, Space and Muscle corrections in case study format for a variety of conditions. Each application is explained and demonstrated by the instructor. During the ample lab time, participants then perform the manual and movement assessments and follow the step-by-step instructions for correct taping technique based on the case study presented. Time is allotted for questions and group discussions regarding clinical reasoning for each correction and cut of tape. Participants will be instructed on the testing rubric for day two.
Day two builds on the material in day one, completing the Muscle Corrections with assessments and labs. This day continues with instruction and demonstration of assessment and taping procedures for the Mechanical, Tendon, Ligament and Circulatory/Lymphatic corrections in case study format. During lab sessions, participants will have ample time to practice new manual and movement assessments and correct taping techniques for conditions involving the upper limbs, lower limbs and trunk. Time is allotted for questions and discussion of the assessment flow charts to determine correct applications and general progression of treatment clinically. At the conclusion of day two, participants are required to participate in a practical exam of a basic taping technique. The participant must pass the exam to attain the CEU certificate for this course. All participants will receive a full color Kinesio® Taping workbook and a 60-day access code to the KTAI database.
Clinical Reasoning and Advanced Concepts of the Kinesio® Taping Method
This one-day course offers a brief review of the basic taping and assessment concepts learned in the first two days of the course. Advanced taping techniques and assessments are presented as lecture tutorials to introduce step-by-step applications for chronic edema, scar and fascial management, nerve taping as well as acute and chronic pain management. Participants will be offered ample lab time to practice each advanced technique guided by the assessment flowchart for clinical decision making. Case studies are presented for designing a clinically relevant application within a treatment program guided by the instructor. Case studies are then introduced for small groups of students to practice the variety of assessment techniques and advanced taping applications.
