One half-day workshop is available in Autumn 2017 – for non-MTI members to join their CPD workshops.
Saturday 9th September
- Sports Taping: 10am – 1pm £60 (the price includes a roll of tape)
Anyone who has worked with athletes is familiar with the colourful sports tape. Kinesiological taping is purported to enhance athletic activity and treat musculoskeletal problems.
How exactly does the tape work and is there evidence to support its use? This workshop will present the principles and evidence behind the tape, explain how to apply it and then consider different applications for various musculoskeletal outcomes. These include, performance enhancement, power, and soft tissue overloading mechanisms. Although the tape is popular with athletic populations it can be applied to treat a range of clients and injuries.
During this workshop participants will have the opportunity to practise the techniques, including oedema control. The focus will be on the extremities with further applications on the back and torso. The workshops is open to practitioners and students and contains theory and practical input.
