2017 has arrived! Last year we ran a sports taping course. An invitation was extended to patients, coaches, parents, trainers and interested participants to attend a practical course for sports taping & and recieve information on acute injury management.
The session involves a practical demonstration and application for taping techniques, plus clinical reasoning. It includes:
- Ankle – acute ligament sprains and Achilles pain
- Knee – patella and anterior knee pain (Osgood Schlatters)
- Thumb – acute ligament sprain and hyperextension injury
- Shoulder – Scapula stabilization and shoulder support
Additional info is presented on how to support and treat injuries on the sporting field or during physical activity.
Course participants receive practical guidance for each taping and are supplied with tape, a USB with video footage of each taping plus explanation, a written hand-out on injury management, plus additionally sports physiotherapy information.
We plan to run it again this year!!
