During the hands on course we were able to trial variations of postural control taping to assist with proper position of the shoulder and arm relative to the back. Pregnancy taping applications were covered, these are particularly relevant for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis.
The course unpacked the concepts of "Power Taping", which is utilising the benefits of kinesiology taping to tape the muscles associated with a particular activity. For example upper back and shoulder taping for overhead athletes.
