Performance Health presents Scrape, Tape and Move, an 8.5-hour CEU course available in various dates and locations throughout the United States.

The course, developed in partnership with the Performance Health Academy and Advances in Clinical Education, will introduce a scientific and practical method to restore and maximize the human movement system by integrating instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, kinesiology taping, and functional exercise.

Participants will gain the background and knowledge in analyzing the functional aspect of human movement, in identifying impairments to the human movement system, and in recognizing the pathomechanical impairments that most benefit from rehabilitative strategies, according to a media release from Performance Health.

“Facilitating and reinforcing proper movement patterns is not a one-size-fits-all formula; every patient has unique pathology and should be treated as such,” states course instructor Michael Voight, PT, DHSc, OCS, SCS, ATC, FAPTA, professor, Belmont University School of Physical Therapy, in the release.

During the course, participants will learn how to perform a quick assessment of movement to differentiate mobility restriction into a joint mobility dysfunction or a tissue extensibility dysfunction using the base assessment from the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). They will also learn postural and mobility reinforcement techniques, such as kinesiology taping, and how to design exercise progressions that restore and advance functional movement patterns using the 4×4 matrix of exercise planning to correct for movement dysfunction.

HawkGrips IASTM Tools, TheraBand Kinesiology Tape with XactStretch technology, and the TheraBand CLX Consecutive Loops exercise band will be used during the course.

“The Scrape, Tape and Move course is approved for evidence-based CEUs for athletic trainers and continuing education credits for physical therapy and occupational therapy,” Voight concludes, in the release. “Following this course, clinicians have a better understanding of how to integrate these methods into treatment of musculoskeletal patients.”
