Kinesiology taping is redefining the role of therapeutic taping for rehabilitation professionals. Taping was once used to physically hold structures in place; now kinesiology taping is used to influence fascia and underlying neural tissues to cause functional changes in both the local tissue as well as the central nervous system. Often relegated to the athletic world, kinesiology taping has many orthopedic, neurological and specialty applications. Course content will include kinesiology taping for joint mobilization/manipulation and stabilization applications.
