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.
FMT Basic introduces functional kinesiology taping methods that can improve the movement and performance of patients and clients. It includes a review of current literature supporting the theories that describe and delineate specific techniques of applying kinesiology taping for enhancement of rehabilitation or performance outcomes. Evidence based chapters in this course include topics of technique, theory and practical lab experience in areas such as pain management; edema/swelling control and proprioceptive guidance to enhance postural positioning. Kinesiology taping for scar mobility and symptoms associated with nerve entrapment are introduced in this course.
FMT Basic is an evidence-informed kinesiology taping course that advances students’ understanding of the efficacy of elastic therapeutic taping as a rehabilitation and performance intervention for patient and client conditions ranging from pain mitigation to improving fluid dynamics and sharpening proprioception. FMT Basic methodically examines the research-influenced content basis for a practical framework of ‘taping movement, not muscles’ replacing an outdated model of taping techniques which was focused on directional taping, specific percentages of stretch applied to the tape and the concept of activation or inhibition of muscles.
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.
This course is 6 hours in length and a 30 Question multiple choice quiz will be required after completing the course to receive your CEU certificate. A 70% test score is required to pass and receive CEUs. The quiz can be open book and unlimited attempts on the quiz are allowed.
