About the Course

Kinesio taping is used in the treatment of injured muscles and joints. Its elasticity means that it can be used to either prevent or encourage different movements, without applying substantial pressure which can obstruct circulation. The taping is applied over around the affected muscles in a stretched position, helping to relieve pain and inflammation.

This is an intensive one day workshop of kinesio taping for the lower limb, open to members and non members, HCPC registered practitioners and Foot Health Practitioners. The aim of this workshop is to introduce the benefits of kinesio taping for musculoskeletal problems of the lower limb.

The conditions Kinesio taping can treat are:

  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Shin splints
  • Ankle sprain
  • Pain associated with flat feet
  • Hallux Valgus (bunion) pain

This course covers theory and practical techniques to a variety of pathologies of lower limb problems.

Approved by The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists
