Course Description

(Prerequisite, completion of Kinesio Taping Assessments, Fundamental Concepts, and Techniques Course; Formally KT1/2)

This course offers a brief review of the basic taping and assessment concepts learned in the first 2 day course. Advanced taping techniques and assessments are presented as Lecture Tutorials to introduce step by step applications for chronic edema, scar and fascial management, nerve taping as well as acute and chronic pain management. Participants will be offered ample lab time to practice each advanced technique guided by the Assessment Flowchart for clinical decision making. Case studies are presented for designing a clinically relevant application within a treatment program guided by the instructor. Case studies are then introduced for small groups of students to practice the variety of assessment techniques and advanced taping applications.

Course Objectives

  • List specific symptoms of different types of tissue injury – nerve, muscle, epidermis, dermis, fascia and joint.
  • Demonstrate application of advanced Epidermis Correction Technique – Web Layering.
  • Demonstrate application of advanced Dermis Correction Technique – Jellyfish.
  • Demonstrate application of advanced Fascia Correction Techniques – Ram’s Head and Manual Fascial Glide.
  • Demonstrate application of advanced Circulatory Lymphatic Correction Technique – Basket Weave.
  • Demonstrate application of advanced Space Correction Technique – Scar Management techniques.
  • Demonstrate integration of Muscle Direction Tests, Screening Assessments, and Corrective Techniques to treat complex injuries such as Whiplash, Shoulder Impingement, and Chronic Knee Pain.
  • In a small group setting identify 3 items on a problem list and goal list from specified case studies and develop appropriate interventions using tape as a modality and defend to the class.
