MILICA MCDOWELL – FMT Geriatrics – Kinesiology Taping
Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use kinesiology tape with special patient populations like the elderly or children.
You don’t have to memorize percentages of stretch or direction of tape in order to get safe, effective results when taping special populations.
FMT Geriatrics introduces the concept of functional kinesiology taping methods with focus on special considerations for the geriatric population. In this course, students will practice musculoskeletal screening assessment, taping and re-assessment of geriatric specific conditions including total joint replacement, stroke, balance disorders, neurologic dysfunctions, fall risk and osteoarthritis. Additionally, FMT Geriatrics includes a review of current literature that supports theories of kinesiology taping for improvement of performance, rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, neurologic dysfunction, management of scars and postural conditioning.
These courses are intended for health professionals who have taken FMT Basic. All supplies needed for the course and lab experiences are provided.
Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.
At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Define and discuss geriatric population needs
- Define, discuss and consider concepts of myofascial chains as an approach to treatment for a multitude of aging conditions
- Discuss and communicate the physiological effects of kinesiology taping
- Critically analyze considerations of taping applications based on current research
- Compare and contrast functional taping applications for geriatric related postural, orthopedic, inflammatory and neurological conditions
- Justify fascial taping applications for applications of postural, orthopedic, inflammatory and neurological conditions
