Athletic & Clinical Taping Course

Athletic & Clinical Taping Course

This hands-on course provides students with knowledge and practical application of clinical taping skills and taping for athletes and athletic injuries. Students will learn various taping concepts from clinical diagnostic taping (ie. McKenzie protocol taping for disc herniation or sciatica patients), functional taping for a variety of conditions (ie. KinTape, Spider Tape, Rock Tape) and traditional athletic taping for sport injuries.   Traditional athletic taping methods include taping various muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints for added support during sport. This form of taping utilizes various forms of tape including zinc oxide tape (traditional white athletic tape), Hypafix (hypoallergenic dressing), Leukotape (rigid brown strapping tape), Elastikon (elastic cloth tape), Ultralight (lycra elastic adhesive tape) and many others. Athletic taping can help reduce and possibly prevent injury as it provides structured support and enhanced proprioceptive feedback to muscles, ligaments and joints.
