Accreditation Check:
The second course in this four-part series on TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape reviews basic kinesiology tape applications of the upper quarter. Dr. Page begins by discussing the different kinesiology tape cuts and patterns including the I-Cut, Y-Cut, X-Cut, and the Fan Cut. This course presents demonstrations showing applications across the neck, shoulder, upper back, elbow, wrist and hand. Best practices for taping common upper quarter presentations such as poor posture, muscle imbalance, muscle tightness, and swelling are presented.

Dr. Page presents the information with the best available evidence, and by combining this knowledge with clinical experience and patient presentation, clinicians will make better clinical decisions when using kinesiology tape.
