Description

From toe walking to torticollis, kinesiology tape has rapidly gaining popularity in pediatric rehabilitation due to its unique ability to improve alignment and reeducate muscles for function. This hands-on certification course gives you all the tools, examples, and lab practice you need to immediately integrate taping for improved therapeutic outcomes, whether your goal is to increase coordination and performance on the athletic field or improve movement and motor control among children with developmental disabilities.

Kinesiology taping is a remarkably versatile technique that can be used in conjunction with sensory integration, splinting, NDT (Neurodevelopmental Treatment), Hippo- and Aquatic Therapies, and while this course has a pediatric focus, many of the applications are also effective in treating the adult patients with neurological conditions.
