During the KT4 Sports/Orthopedic course, attendees will practice their skills on a variety of applications correlated with specific clinical sports conditions. This course is designed to give attendees guidelines on how to combine the concepts learned in the KT1, KT2, and KT3 courses with the concepts of sports medicine. This course is also designed to give attendees the chance to learn and practice specific applications related to specific sports dysfunctions. During the course, attendees will face problem-solving and specific taping techniques correlated with the healing process of joint and soft tissue, posture correction to provide stimulations to restore good posture for athletes, and lower and upper limb injuries.
