The purpose of this course is to introduce Athletic Taping for common sports injuries to Manual Therapists, Kinesiologists, and Personal Trainers.
Athletic taping is a skill that is under-utilized by most Manual Therapists, Kinesiologists, and Personal Trainers, typically reserved for Field of Play Medical Teams, such as Certified Athletic Therapists, Sport Physiotherapists, and Sport Medicine Doctors. Unless you are a Sports Massage Therapist or have been involved in athletics, you may not be aware of the benefits of Athletic Taping.
Athletic taping is performed by applying tape to the body on the skin surface to maintain a stable position of joints and muscles during physical activity. Athletic taping is multifaceted, being used for several reasons, injury prevention, injury management, and maintaining proper biomechanics during activity.
Through a combination of lecture and practical sessions, this course will explore athletic taping techniques for the purpose of:
Stabilizing or restricting the range of motion of an injured joint to allow physical activity with reduced pain
Compress soft tissue to support the musculotendinous unit
Support injured structures via athletic taping / wrapping

This taping course is extraordinarily comprehensive and useful. It was presented in an organized, clear, and concise manner. There is a perfect balance of theoretical and practical material. Mark was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to answer all my questions and clarify all concepts about taping. I will definitely be back for future courses.

The course instructor is very knowledgeable, experienced, and always willing to answer your questions. The course went at a pace appropriate for the participants to learn. I like the hands on experience, background info and visual printable material. I'm ready to start taping!
Fantastic amount of hands on practical experiential learning.

You get what you put into this course. It's very hands on, and if you don't put your hands on, you're out of luck.

Mark is an extremely great teacher - explains things in a way that you understand and can apply this info at a later date. He is very knowledgeable on course subject as well as a number of additional topics. He is down to earth and easy going - makes for a great class atmosphere. The course was very good - something I will use for the remainder of my career. Lots of hands on work, but also topics covered well in Power Point Presentation.
