The principles of taping safely whilst providing adequate support to joints, enabling athletes to return to sport sooner is a valuable skill for your players. We scrutinise the latest materials and research, plus provide you with an abundance of practical applications to all major joints so that you can enhance your expertise and tape joints both ethically and professionally in a pre-competition setting. This form of taping is generally used to enable someone to engage in a bout of physical activity including a match or other competitive event. It is not often used for longer durations.
First developed by Japanese chiropractor and acupuncturist Dr Kenzo Kase in 1979, this form of rehabilitative taping has become much more popular over the last decade. It may be applied to athletes to help prevent injury, add stability to a specific area and improve performance. This form of taping may be applied in a sporting arena, or clinical setting and may be kept in place by your client for one or more days with extended benefits when performing activities.
This course is ideal for coaches, trainers, nurses, sports massage practitioners and sports therapists. Applicants must have a minimum Level 3 Anatomy & Physiology qualification and preferably some practical experience of functional anatomy to ensure being adequately prepared for this course.
