KT3: The KT3 course combines the Kinesio Taping Method foundational concepts of KT1&KT2 with advanced clinical concepts. The course provides lab time for attendees to practice their skills on the new concepts through a variety of clinical applications. The KT3 course is designed to allow the Certified Kinesio Taping Instructor (CKTI) to cater specific clinical applications to address specific professions. Upon completion of this course and prerequisite KT1&KT2 seminar, attendees will be eligible to request and take the exam to become a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP). Note: Students can request to take the exam but will not be eligible to receive a CKTP certificate until they graduate.
KT4: Pediatric Concepts: The KT4 Pediatric course is designed to provide advanced Kinesio Taping techniques and problem solving to physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, massage therapists, athletic trainers, and other health professionals specializing in pediatrics. Kinesio Taping is a method of treatment for musculoskeletal and Myofascial disorders. Kinesio Taping can be used during physical activity and in conjunction with many therapeutic interventions. Attendees will review theory and basic taping techniques, learn advanced and combination techniques, and develop clinical reasoning skills relevant to the pediatric population. The course will also provide commonly used taping techniques for specific diagnoses, including cerebral palsy, hemiplegia, torticollis, and brachial plexus injury; as well as pediatric sports related injuries.
KT4: Neurological Concepts: The KT4 Neurological course builds on and expands techniques learned in the KT1, KT2, and KT3 courses. This course addresses variations in nervous system status. The attendees will develop treatment strategies and practice extensive Kinesio Taping techniques to address a wide variety of issues encountered when treating patients with neurological diseases. Some examples include: CVA, CP, ALS, MD, MS, and TBI. The course considers other physiological systems which impact patient considerations when working with the trunk and extremities. Developing, recovering, and deteriorating nervous system patients are investigated, strategies planned, and KinesioTaping techniques practiced.
