PRIVATE HOSTED OT/ OTS ONLY. KINESIOTAPING KT1-2-3 EXPRESS COURSE 20 HOURS- 2 DAYS Shreveport, LA FRI/SAT DEC 9-10th, 2021 (CONTACT FOR PRICING)
HOST: LSU HEALTH 1450 Claiborne Ave, Shreveport LA 71103
PRIVATE HOSTED FOR OTR and OTS ONLY- SPACE IS LIMITED!!
The 20 hour Express Course in Kinesio Taping® will present all the concepts and techniques of Kinesio Taping in an expedited course format. The first day will present an overview of the development of the Kinesio Taping Method®, fundamental concepts, assessments and screening tests, and begin to introduce Kinesio Correction taping techniques. After completing fundamental concepts the course will move into advanced techniques and clinical reasoning. Attendees will problem solve complex clinical cases requiring the application of multiple Kinesio taping techniques. Lab sessions will provide time to practice assessments and screenings, plus applying techniques to a variety of upper and lower body conditions. Instructors will provide personalized feedback to each attendee to insure a thorough grasp of the taping concepts and techniques. Upon completion of the course attendees will be able to discuss and apply the Kinesio Taping Method to a variety of muscular, orthopedic and neurological conditions.
qualities of Kinesio Tex Tape.
