Clinical Sports Taping and Strapping – (Module 2) – 8 Hours Course

Original price was: £350.00.Current price is: £300.00.

Course Introduction

When I first started sports taping in professional football, I was overawed not only in learning to sports tape. But then also then making said sports taping specific to a condition eg – Knee MCL injury or Deltoid ligament of the ankle. I found the learning curve too steep much too soon and often made mistakes. It’s this reason I decided to split the course into 2 modules.

It is important to become competent in the foundations which are brilliant applicable techniques that can be used straight away on completion. These skills then make Module 2 more enjoyable and therefore more effective in the sporting environment.

Building on the fantastic foundational skills learned in Module 1, this clinical sports taping course delves deeper into specialised techniques. You will gain expertise in more complex methods essential for managing specific injuries and enhancing athletic performance.
