Therapeutic Kinesiology Taping for Children With Neurological Impairments – Webinar
January 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm MST
Children with neurological impairments benefit from improved sensory perceptive information coming into their nervous system. Therapeutic kinesiology taping can facilitate muscle activity, inhibit abnormal muscle activity, assist to reposition joints, support postural alignment, and improve proprioception for better functional outcomes. some of the benefits of therapeutic kinesiology taping include providing stability of joints while allowing full range of motion, unloading tissue via decompression for improved sliding of myofascial layers and providing enhanced motor control through a novel stimulus during movement for improved body awareness. Evidence-based research suggests that clinicians who incorporate kinesiology taping into their treatment plan note improvement in the postural control and functional activities with both, upper and lower limbs, and increase in functional independency.
Participants of this course will learn to implement kinesiology taping for the most common problems in the pediatric patient with neuromotor disorders such as: truncal hypotonia, shoulder girdle instability, and extremity dysfunction. Participants will leave with practical and effective kinesiology taping skills they can integrate into their toolbox the next day to improve therapeutic outcomes.
- Therapeutic kinesiology taping interventions for common dysfunctions in the neurological pediatric patient, such as truncal hypotonia, shoulder girdle instability, and extremity dysfunction
- Effective application and precautions of kinesiology taping to parents and caregivers to include this modality in a home program
- Case study practice to gain the indications and protocols for applying handling and therapeutic taping interventions
