Description

Evidence-Based Kinesiology Taping for Pediatrics

Presented by: Kristin L. Sanders, PT, MPT, PCS


Kinesiology tape has been utilized since the 1970s as a technique for healing the interconnected body. While often thought of as a treatment for athletes, kinesiology taping is very versatile for many patient populations. The pediatric neuromuscular system benefits from early and continuous input for postural development and motor learning.Therapeutic taping provides an additional modality for optimal results across all pediatric patients.

This hands-on and interactive workshop will empower participants to integrate kinesiology tape into their pediatric practice. Through several lab practices and discussions participants will learn to safely and effectively apply therapeutic tape to multiple areas of the body and improve outcomes in various pediatric conditions. Participants will leave with effective evidence-based kinesiology taping strategies to integrate into their toolbox the next day to improve therapeutic outcomes.

TX: This course has been approved by the Texas Physical Therapy Association as meeting continuing Education requirements for PTs & PTAs, 6.0 CCUs, approval #61078TX. OTs will be provided certificates for 6.0 CE hours
