Overview

This one day workshop covers all of the key techniques associated with sports taping. These are essential skills for any therapist looking to play an active role in the management of sports injuries. The skills gained will help with employment opportunities in private practice.

There are also techniques taught that will help to re-educate poor posture and the problems that are associated with it.
