Course Description:

This 2 day course is designed to introduce participants to the science, assessment and application techniques of the Kinesio Taping® Method. Lecture Tutorials of the history, science and theory of stimulus transmission through skin and resulting therapeutic benefit across efferent and afferent systems is reviewed. Corrections for Epidermis, Dermis, Fascia, Space, and Muscle in case study format are presented. Lecture and demonstration by the instructor, then participants perform the Manual Assessments and Movement Assessments. Discussion of the assessment flow charts to determine correct applications and general progression of treatment clinically.

Learning Objectives:

  • List unique qualities of Kinesio Tex Tape.
  • List different physiological systems affected by Kinesio Tex Tape.
  • List 3 contraindications and 3 precautions of using Kinesio Tex Tape.
  • List best use for each type of Kinesio Tex Tape.
  • Describe and demonstrate cutting different Kinesio Taping application tape shapes: I Strip, Y Strip, Web Cut, X Cut, etc.
  • Describe one situation where it would be appropriate to use each different tape cut.
  • Demonstrate one of the three methods of safely removing Kinesio Tex Tape from skin.
  • Demonstrate appropriate use of Manual Direction Tests for tissue and muscle.
  • Demonstrate use of Kinesio Screening Assessments to identify target tissue for treatment.
  • Demonstrate proper application of Kinesio Epidermis, Dermis and Fascia Taping technique.
  • Demonstrate proper application of corrective techniques: Fascia, Mechanical, Space, Functional, Lymphatic, Tendon, Ligament, and Muscle Correction.
  • Describe difference between an underactive and overactive muscle correction application.
  • Identify appropriate tension range for each corrective technique.
  • Describe difference between ligament correction and tendon correction.
  • List a condition that the Functional Correction would be used for.
  • Describe the difference between “long and short oscillation” and “side to side oscillation” used in the Fascial Correction application.
