Introduction to Functional Taping

Program Information

All the major and Olympic athletes are now using some type of light-elastic tape (kinesiology tape) but do you know why? And do you know how to use the tape? If not, this is the class for you.

The concept focused in this course is for the joint to maintain as much normal function as possible during the recovery and rehab phase.  This concept can also be used for the athlete who wants to continue to participate in a sport and needs to maintain their function but at the same time have protection from injury/re-injury.

Dr. Thomas will cover many aspects of taping including:

  • History, theory, research
  • Qualities and benefits
  • Effects, indications and contraindications
  • Taping accessories, skin preparation, procedures and application removal

Get the most up-to-date information on kinesiology taping for use in your practice.
