About Taping & Protective Equipment 

Taping for Sport & Performance 

For all participant types, including those working on SPC credentialling!

Strong taping techniques help Health Care professionals progress their treatment programs more effectively. Whether in the clinic or at a sporting event, taping is an essential rehabilitation technique that can effectively help a client return to work, play or daily living activities.Taping has been used in the sporting world for many years to provide support and protection to an injured part, allowing early and safe return to activity. The value of taping for non – sport specific rehabilitation is growing rapidly and patients can benefit from you maximizing its application in your practice.

In this 1 day hands-on, practical course, the participant will learn how to prevent and care for common injuries with the proper use of taping and wrapping techniques. Emphasis will be on the most common injury areas of ankle, wrist and thumb taping and simple elbow or knee blocking will also be covered.

The course is supported by online pre-course learning and post-course key concept review to maximize educational value.
