The concept and design of Kinesio tape was developed in the 1970’s by Dr Kenzo Kase, a Japanese chiropractor, who wanted a tape that could provide his patients with support but didn’t restrict or limit movement the way traditional athletic tapes do. A combination of cotton and nylon Kinesio tape mimic’s the skins elasticity so you can use your full range of motion without obstructing circulation. Used predominantly in the treatment of injured muscles and joints, Kinesio tape is applied over and/or around the affected muscles in a stretched position, helping to relieve pain and inflammation.

Kinesio tape can be used for a variety of conditions seen in the knee and foot health including:

  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Shin splints
  • Ankle sprains
  • Hallux Valgus (bunions)
  • Pain associated with flat feet

Often seen on professional athletes Kinesio tape can be used to maximise athletic performance, so if you often see sports and exercise enthusiasts, this course is a MUST!

Attendees will be shown how to confidently apply Kinesio tape for a variety of conditions. Delegates will be practicing Kinesio taping applications on one another so you can experience first-hand the benefits of its application.

1x box of Kinesio tape will be provided post course for delegates to start treatments straight away!
