About this Event

Kinesiology Taping for Oedema Reduction and Scar Management

Kinesiology tape has become an important tool in elite sports training and management of skeletal muscular disorders. However standard methods of tape application are not suitable for acute and chronic oedema.

• Describe the properties of various kinesiology tapes and taping styles

• Outline the role of lymph taping in acute oedema management including appropriate styles of taping

• Outline the role of lymph taping in chronic oedema management including appropriate styles of taping

• Discuss the role of kinesiology taping in scar recovery and reduction

• Provide an overview of the role of specialist lymph taping practitioners and where to find them
