Kinesiology Taping for Physical Therapy – Kinesiology Taping for Personal Trainers – Kinesiology Taping for Strength Coaches
In this lecture, physical therapist Rick Daigle describes the use of kinesiology taping for strength to support an area during healing, to enhance physical performance and to assist with corrective exercise development. When you finish this lecture, you’ll have an idea when and how taping can be used, and some specifics on relaxing tight muscles, supporting weak joints and reducing inflammation.
“You can use tape to help facilitate a muscular contraction. You can use it to help loosen tissue, help inhibit tight tissue, increase the circulation and restrict fluids. It helps to increase muscle force. It works for stabilization and allows mobility. It helps to normalize function.” ~Rick Daigle
