GENERAL COURSE BACKGROUND
Most of the patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain disorders (MSD) report that it also interfere with their everyday activities. MSDs are extremely common with an increase in age. Physiotherapy treatments such as therapeutic strengthening exercises which aim to improve the biomechanics and motor control of an impaired segment of the body are sometimes limited due to the presence of pain. Biomechanical Taping Technique (BMT) was developed and perfected by Dr. Dones for 10 years of thorough research and clinical practice. This technique is proven to be effective in immediately decreasing the pain and improving the functional outcomes of the patients suffering from MSD. BMT has already been used by various physiotherapists in their clinical practice since it was released in 2007. It was effective in providing immediate pain relief to the patient thus enabling them to participate to their daily activities and maximizing their rehabilitation progress during the performance. The technique is in a completely new level and unique from the other known taping techniques. It uses a combination INM and VCD Tapes which both have its own characteristics that makes the technique effective and powerful. The BMT also utilizes unique and simple manual therapy techniques that add a touch of Physiotherapy to the treatment technique.
The general objective of this course is to comprehensively introduce Biomechanical Taping Technique in treating various musculoskeletal pain disorders.
At the end the course, the participants should be able to:
1. To know the concepts and background of Biomechanical Taping
2. To learn the improtance of the fascial link within the body in addressing MSDs symptoms
3. To learn the practical application of Biomechanical Taping in various MSDs in the body
