Lecture Name

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


Kinesiology taping is a viable treatment intervention for physical and occupational therapists to facilitate and provide support, stability and changes to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion for participation in functional ADLs. Additionally, these taping techniques can help to move lymphatic fluids (edema), correct movement patterns and improve posture. 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 kinesiology 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.
