During the K-Taping Pro course, students will learn 4 application techniques:
- Muscle technique: Muscle functional disorders often cause a mismatch between antagonists and agonists. Muscle-taping techniques are used to correct this imbalance. They allow muscles to regain their normal function, and adaptations can be made to load capacities and movement patterns.
- Ligament technique: The ligament technique is used for injuries and misuse of ligaments and tendons. This technique relieves pressure and pain and improves load capacity resulting in faster healing.
- Corrective technique: The corrective technique is divided between functional correction and fascia correction. The functional correction technique is used for correction of abnormal bone positions such an abnormal position of the patella. Functional correction requires maximum stretching of the tape before use. Fascia correction is used for adhesion within the fascia muscles, which typically results in loosening of the fascia and pain.
- Lymphatic technique: The lymphatic correction technique is used when the lymphatic flow is interrupted. This technique lifts the skin, thus increasing the space between the skin and the subcutaneous tissue. The lymph is therefore able to flow more easily out of the interstitial space and into the lymphatic circulation.
