Sports Kinesiology Taping Course

CPD Award in Sports Kinesiology Taping

What is Kinesiology Taping?

Kinesiology Taping made its first major public appearance at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Since then it has taken the world by storm as increasing numbers of healthcare professionals – physiotherapists, sports therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, occupational therapists, massage therapists and lymphoedema specialists – have embraced the Kinesiology Taping Method as an effective aid in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, with the associated swelling and pain, and also lymphoedema.

Whether the patients are professional athletes with complicated injuries or members of the general public with common muscle and joint problems, Kinesiology Taping has become a sought-after additional skill for practitioners to use.
