Advanced taping techniques and assessments are presented as Lecture Tutorials to introduce step by step applications for chronic edema, scar and fascial management, nerve taping as well as acute and chronic pain management. Time is allotted for questions and discussion of the assessment flow charts to determine correct applications and general progression of treatment clinically.
