FMT Pediatrics & Geriatrics

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 Pediatrics Kinesiology Taping Certification 

FMT Pediatrics introduces the concept of functional kinesiology taping methods with focus on special considerations for the pediatric population. Additionally, this course includes reviews of current literature supporting the theories of kinesiology taping for the purposes of discomfort* control, rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, and a variety of pediatric and adolescent injuries.  Assessment and screening techniques will be delivered to enhance students’ knowledge of common pediatric conditions. 

Additionally, FMT Pediatrics includes a review of taping techniques for neurologic, orthopedic and postural conditions. Tape strategies for acute and chronic sport-related injury in the pediatric population will be discussed, practiced and evaluated. Conditions like toe walking, poor postural control, torticollis and scoliosis will be introduced and tape strategies for pediatric patients and clients will be covered. Special tape techniques for smaller bodies will also be presented.  

  

FMT-Geriatrics Kinesiology Taping Certification – FMT Geriatrics introduces the concept of functional kinesiology taping methods with focus on special considerations for the geriatric population.
