Refresher and advanced certification course program Code: UEBC 1 / 2 ° – 3 hours of training. Advanced treatment course will be available on request and on site in a therapeutic hospital setting. Cost will be advised.

Course objectives: This is a two day course for a total of 18 hours. The participant during the course will follow the theoretical development of treatment techniques (upper extremity) in the NeuroMuscular Taping method and its therapeutic treatment objectives. The participant will gain manual skills in the applications of NeuroMuscular Taping specifically to treat conditions often seen in post surgical and sports trauma rehabilitation as well degenerative neurological conditions. Correct application of the method will enhance correct application and reduce complications while improving overall mobility. Specific skills will give the therapist the ability to reduce swelling and edema, reduce pain during mobilization, improve overall mobility and fasten patient autonomy. Patient rehab. management during the phases of treatment will also be covered. Each participant is individually followed in the application methods assuring the highest level of skill learning and qualification possible.

First Day

  • NeuroMuscular Taping: concepts, theory, and application techniques
  • Practical applications: compression and decompression
  • Case studies – Drainage of the hand, Elbow replacement
