Combining Evidence-Based Manual Therapy and
Kinesiology Taping - Therapists / Healthcare Training Seminar
Incorporate Two Groundbreaking Methods into
your Daily Practice
Clients rarely seek immediate treatment feeling that the pain will "just go away
on its own." Regardless of the situation, patients want to return to their
normal activities as quickly and pain-free as possible. As a clinician,
sometimes it becomes necessary to explore new methods or even a combination of
methods ? to best assist the client with movement. Kinesiology taping has been
used for well over a decade in the United States for athletic injuries, but if
applied appropriately it can be used for virtually any situation from acute
injuries on the playing field to overuse injuries in the office. A powerful
adjunct treatment for manual therapists, taping allows the clinician's efforts
to continue working even after the client has left the clinic.
This innovative course is designed to introduce kinesiology taping to your daily
manual therapy practice. Learn the best methods to restore clients? mobility and
function and receive hands-on instruction in highly effective manual therapy
techniques that provide rapid changes in the fascial system of the body. Return
to your practice with effective assessment and rehab techniques for manual
therapy and kinesiology taping in a variety of settings.
