Advanced Pediatric/Neuro Taping

Advanced Pediatric/Neuro Taping

Utilizing Taping Skills to Solve Problems

This advanced level class teaches more taping techniques for the trunk to then assimilate your previously learned taping skills with problem-solving. Then, you can utilize all your skills as a therapist to use Light Elastic Taping as an adjunct for specific functional skills and developmental milestones.

This course is a combination of lecture, classroom discussion, and practical lab techniques. Contact KTI Kinesiology Taping Institute with any questions.
