Kinesiology Taping Course
Saturday, March 2, 2019 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Franciscan Health, 8111 S. Emerson, Indianapolis, IN 46237
COURSE DESCRIPTION: For several decades, therapeutic taping has been used to improve patient function, correct postural imbalances, reduce pain, and prevent injury. While kinesiology taping is widely used in athletics, it has yet to reach its full potential in more traditional rehabilitation settings. Use of kinesiology tape layered with function-based therapy intervention may improve functional outcomes.
This hands-on course is designed to guide participants through appropriate therapeutic taping applications for this expanding target population. Participants will focus on the fundamentals and techniques of taping as well as specific applications appropriate for populations of neurologically and orthopedically impaired patients including applications for pain, edema, shoulder subluxation, posture and positioning, and more.
This course will provide participants with taping techniques which can immediately be integrated into practice. Participants will learn non-invasive, practical methods of managing conditions specific to these populations. Taping techniques learned can be used in virtually any environment and with few contraindications.
Participants will earn 7.0 contact hours. Upon completion of the course, certificates of attendance will be provided to all participants. The 7.0 contact hours qualify for continuing competence requirements for Indiana PTs, PTAs, OTRs, and COTAs.
AUDIENCE: PTs, PTAs, OTRs, COTAs, and ATCs. Five student spots also available.
INSTRUCTOR: Angela Reimer, OTD, MOT, OTR, CBIST received both her Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and Master of Occupational Therapy, from The University of Findlay and her Doctorate from Indiana University-Purdue University – Indianapolis. She has over 18 years of clinical experience with geriatric and neurologically impaired populations, including serving as a regional manager and educator for several rehabilitation organizations. Additionally, Ms. Reimer is a member of the American Society for Neurorehabilitation, the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, the Indiana Occupational Therapy Association, and The American Occupational Therapy Association, and is a member of several regional and national practice committees such as the AOTA’s national credentialing committee. Ms. Reimer has presented courses across North America on kinesiology taping and stroke rehabilitation, including several “standing room only” courses for stroke practitioners at the AOTA conference, and has lectured extensively for PT and OT programs across the Midwestern United States. Ms. Reimer is co-director and speaker for Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist workshops, the field’s only stroke certification for physical and occupational therapists. Her unique combination of education, experience and passion translates into highly innovative and effective rehabilitation solutions.
