We are delighted to be launching our first course combining Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation and Dynamic Taping. This course will bring together two popular treatment methods which will allow you to use with your clients straight away.
Purpose: Teach participants the methodology, evidence, and techniques surrounding Biomechanical Taping and HawkGrips as rehabilitative tools to improve the functionality and recovery of rehabilitating patients and athletes. At the end of the course, participants will learn how to:
- Manage Load
- Manage Movement Patterns
- Manage Function
What is Biomechanical Taping:
So this dynamic tape is neither a kinesiology tape or an athletic tape. The biomechanical tape is a 4 way stretching tape with strong elastic resistance and recoil of varying grades, absorb and inject force to reduce workload on the body. The tape itself is a soft and breathable, yet high quality and strength which can be used from rehabilitation to Wimbledon.
Step 1 The HawkGrips tools are great for breaking down tissue and building it back up, which in return reduces pain.
Step 2 The Biomechanical Taping helps manage load, movement patterns and function.
Course Format: Course is taught to educate attendees on the methods of Biomechanical Taping combined with HawkGrips through evidenced based practice and clinical reason associated with topics including.
Course Attire: Loose fitting clothing (no jeans) recommended Sports Bra or Tank Top for females to allow appropriate skin exposure for proper application
Course Preparation: Areas with hairy skin recommended to be shaved down (clippers, not razor) to be taped appropriately. Those with skin allergies or sensitivity please inform the presenter.
A note from Keith Cronin:
“Scrape and Tape is an impactful education course that integrates two rehabilitation products that together, enhance a clinicians ability to address a wide variety of orthopedic, neurological, pediatric, and sports related injuries and conditions. Hawkgrips and Dynamic Tape create a combo like no other. IASTM first addresses the adhesions and abnormal soft tissue associated with injury or chronic ailments, followed up by Dynamic Tape which helps to manage load, manage movement patterns, and managed function with its strong recoiling biomechanical properties to support weakened and overly stressed tissues. The course is 80% lab, focusing the majority of time on hands on instruction to maximise the clinicians comfort with the tools and tape by end of session. Like any skill, Hawkgrips and Dynamic Taping take time to develop but this course will provide the critical foundation for future clinical excellence. By the end of the course you will learn two new clinical skills sets, reduce stress through the hands on a daily basis, and expand your treatment scope and depth for a wide variety of conditions and injuries, a win-win strategy for any rehabilitation practitioner”.
