DeSales University, Center Valley, Pa, will host three Kinesio Taping seminars and a Legacy Class from September 25 to 27, 2015, according to a news release from Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network.
Sponsored by Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network, DeSales University, and Kinesio Taping Association, the event is open to all licensed medical professionals, including physical therapists, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and athletic trainers, per the release.
The seminars offered will include: “Fundamentals & Advanced (KT1&KT2)” on Saturday and Sunday, “Clinical Concepts (KT3)” on Saturday, and “Specialty Neurological Concepts (KT4)” on Sunday.
The event’s highlight will be the Legacy Series keynote presentation by Dr Kenzo Kase, inventor of Kinesio Tape, on Friday, September 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in DeSale University’s Gambet Center Auditorium. The release notes that this will be an opportunity for attendees to learn more about Kase’s journey and research, and to see demonstrations on patients.
According to the release, Good Shepherd physical therapist Karen Danish, PT, MS, CHT, CKTP, CKTI, who is one of only two certified Kinesio® certified instructors in the state of Pennsylvania, will serve as an instructor during the seminar.
“We have seen firsthand the benefits of Kinesio Taping® for our patients,” Danish says in the release. “While others have tried to imitate this approach, Dr. Kase’s method remains the gold standard for therapy. Proper tape weight, application and training are all crucial to good patient outcomes.”
Seating for the event is limited. Registration and additional information can be found at www.goodshepherdrehab.org/education.
