Intro to Rocktape

Date: Sunday 3rd June 2018, 9am-5pm
Cost: $290 MA members/$320 non-members
PDPs: 8pts
Venue: SSNT

RockTape courses are Australia’s most popular kinesiology tape courses. Since 2010 courses have been conducted over 500 full and half day courses, attended by more than 10,000 people. Why the interest?

Unlike other methods, RockTape’s taping protocol is based on an ‘open-source’ philosophy - we don’t believe there’s only one right way to tape. This approach to taping integrates concepts from all other methods and provides a framework for the practitioner to determine the best approach for them and their clients using their own clinical reasoning. By teaching a framework of kinesiology taping - concepts not recipes, it’s much easier for attendees to apply clinically to their customer group – i.e. lower limb, upper limb, paediatric, geriatric, neuro, musculoskeletal, equine, canine, etc.

Cost: $75-$175
PDPs: 4pts

This course brings together over 24 years of clinical practice and evidence based research specific to the field of pre and postnatal manual therapy.

The latest research related to precautions and benefits of the manual therapy modalities used in practice and its relevance to the pregnant patient will be covered. Evidenced based research into the management of many conditions that present during pregnancy with emphasis on pelvic girdle pain will be a large component of this course. Current guidelines in relation to exercise during the pre and postnatal period will also be reviewed. This course is essentially a theoretical and practical review of a pregnant patient who may be experiencing pain and dysfunction and the management of this using the biopsychosocial approach to patient care within the scope of myotherapy practice.
