An Introduction to Dynamic Tape With Ryan Kendrick
The introduction to the introduction; a Comera Movement Science perspective
The management of clinical presentations is complex. Any tool advantaging the practitioner in achieving the desired clinical outcome is to be welcomed. When effective tools are combined with expertise, the chance of success is heightened. Dynamic Tape is certainly a force for good; matched with an upward trajectory of understanding, the results are world class.
An Introduction to Dynamic Tape supplies practitioners the opportunity to realise the clinical possibilities offered by biomechanical taping. As the title suggests, this 2.5 hour module outlines the fundamentals of Dynamic Tape’s utilisation, signposting practitioners to the upcoming and comprehensive educational and credentialing pathway (Part A-C).
From a Comera Movement Science perspective, this module shares more than just a name with an Introduction to Kinetic Control. Both act as the first step of practitioner progression and both are committed to the importance of the clinical reasoning process. Indeed, while the tape itself is a great piece of technology, its true value is realised when skilfully applied, as part of a bigger clinical presentation management intervention. The biomechanical taping approach is more than just the tape.
To put it another way, the notion of an ‘n=1’ approach acknowledges the value of individualised management with clinical practice; when ‘n =1’ is combined with the targeted Newtons (N) of force facilitated by the tape to attenuate loading on a case-by-case level, the desire for individualised patient management is realised. Those familiar with CMS will recognise the accord between the approaches; both are driven by a focus on movement and a systematic approach to achieving clinical outcomes.
