Description

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use kinesiology tape.

You had to read a book or attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of applying tape.

Not anymore.

FMT Advanced expands on the concepts taught in FMT Basic Kinesiology Taping and explores strategies to enhance human movement and performance through evidence-based functional taping methods. The anatomy and physiology of myofascial lines will be covered, the fascial lines are used in conjunction with kinesiology taping techniques to support efficient human movement. Sport-specific taping techniques are introduced, and students will have opportunities to assess dysfunction in specific anatomical planes of motion. Tape application techniques are explored and practiced with an emphasis on taping fascial chains to improve movement and enhance function. Students will learn techniques in a hands-on laboratory environment where they will have ample practice and instructor feedback on their techniques.

These courses are intended for health professionals with all levels of prior taping experience.

Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.

Note: Tools are not provided with this course.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss, practice and integrate the concept of longitudinal muscle chain kinesiology taping
  • Discuss, demonstrate and interpret movement screening techniques to evaluate functional and dysfunctional movement patterns
  • Demonstrate and discuss the concepts of longitudinal fascial chain kinesiology taping
  • Demonstrate and evaluate effective functional taping applications based on findings in movement assessment
  • Compare and contrast sport-specific movement patterns and how kinesiology tape improves sports performance
  • Compare and contrast upper and lower extremity helical fascial chain taping applications
  • Introduce, interpret and practice applications for compression band floss in the upper and lower extremity as well as the trunk

Live course registrations close 24 hours before the scheduled course date/time.

  • I am enrolled in a webcast, but I have not received my supplies yet. Now what?

Supplies are sent manually on a course-by-course basis. This means your supplies and informational email will be sent to you on the week of. If you do not receive your supplies by the Thursday before the course, please reach out to student@rocktape.com for assistance.

  • Do I need to have someone with me to practice on during a webcast or an on-demand course?

No, it is not necessary for you to have a model with you while you complete the course. However, we do find it helpful to practice the principles as they are presented, so you are more than welcome to have someone present with you during the course. Note: Any model/person(s) who have not registered for the course will not receive a certificate or CEU credits.

  • Do I need to do anything to prepare myself before taking the post-course quiz?

Yes, please ensure you download the study guides located in the “Downloads” tab and complete your participant waiver (if you haven’t already).

  • When will I receive my certificate?

For a live/webcast course:

If you have completed all the course paperwork and quizzes, you will receive your certificate in approximately three weeks from the course completion date.

For an on-demand course:

You will receive your certificate immediately after completing your course.

  • How do I know if a course is approved for CEUs?

Please check the “CEU Details” tab on the course listing page. Each course, profession, and state have different approvals. If you do not see your profession and/or state on the CEU Details page, then we do not have approvals. You are more than welcome to check with your licensing board to see if the course meets their requirements.

  • I am enrolled in a webcast. How do I log in to access the webcast?

Once you register and complete your waiver you will receive login instructions that includes your password to the webcast. Please read this document carefully and in full.
