Description

This professional course companion and practical manual for therapists, midwives and pediatricians has been written by German author Birgit Kumbrink, founder and medical director of the international K-Taping Academy, who is one of the most experienced users and teachers of the treatment method internationally.

Already integrated successfully in competitive sports, medical treatment and rehabilitation programs, K-Taping therapy offers physical, occupational and speech therapists a wide range of options for the treatment of infants, small children and younger patients.

K-Taping can now be integrated into pediatric physiotherapy and speech therapy, aiding in the treatment of a range of conditions including postural defects, deformities of the feet and dysphagia.

Content features K-Taping in theory, which includes: the properties, function and mode of action of elastic K-Tape; the effects of K-Tape therapy; the fundamentals of K-Tape application; and contra-indications.

It also covers K-Taping in practice, which includes: the four major application techniques (muscle, ligament, correction and lymph applications) including common indications in children, and practical examples; the appropriate technique for more than 50 medical indications: and step-by-step illustrated guidance with color photo series, practical tips and alternative applications.
