This lecture is part of the following course:
Clinical Kinesiology Taping Fundamentals


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.

The last lecture in this course discusses different clinical kinesiology taping techniques for muscles, then presents a series of videos that demonstrate how to tape the lower extremities, including the quadriceps, pes anserine, illiotibial band, back and lumbar star, tibia, hamstring, patella, calf/gastrocnemius and ankle. The lecture concludes with a section comparing open and closed chain movement, and explains how much stretch should be used for taping a variety of conditions.

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.
