This comprehensive course connects the dots between strengthening, taping, and functional outcomes. Using evidence-based research to create treatment strategies, participants will explore underlying causes for malalignment, understand long-term consequences, and develop treatment plans involving practice repetition in new alignment patterns as a result of taping.
- CEU DETAILS
Enhance therapy outcomes in your pediatric clients, birth through adolescence, with neuro-motor impairments and issues with alignment utilizing taping and problem solving based on NDT principles presented in this course. Unlike many taping courses this course introduces you to a variety of materials that can be used to achieve improved postural alignment and facilitate muscle activation for enhanced performance. We will explore possible underlying causes for the malalignments and discuss the possible long term ramifications. Research has shown that taping alone is not sufficient to sustain change achieved over time and needs to be combined with practice repetition in the new alignment. You will practice with several different materials on the other course participants to achieve specific objectives. Examples of intervention with children
utilizing taping procedures will reinforce learning for clinical applications. Course includes videotapes and case studies.
What you will cover:
- Theory and principles of taping as adjunct to therapy
- The role of strengthening as it relates to enhance taping results
- Kinetic taping (neoprene, lycra, Thera-togs, Hip Helpers, body suits, Superwrap)
- Techniques using therapeutic elastic tape
- Rigid Taping for the trunk, shoulder, lower extremities, feet, ankle
