Clinical Kinesiology Taping Fundamentals

Description

Kinesiology taping allows the individual to receive therapeutic benefits 24 hours a day, for two to five days between applications. Not only is clinical taping beneficial during physical activity, but it also can be used in conjunction with other modalities, including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy and electrical stimulation.

This second lecture discusses different clinical kinesiology taping techniques for muscles, then presents a series of videos that demonstrate how to tape the upper extremities, including the deltoids, scapula, biceps and triceps, wrist and forearm. The lecture concludes with a section on skin safety and common clinical taping errors.

Note: It is advised that anyone taking this course have samples of various kinesiology tapes on hand while watching the presentation. In addition, it is recommended to have a roll of one of the tapes, as well as a person to practice the techniques on.
