RockTape Equine is a kinesiology tape that has a unique adhesive perfect for all equestrian sports. This training will address how to use this tape for both the horse and the rider.
RockTape FMTEquine will address functional kinesiology taping methods to reduce or control pain, manage swelling or edema, increase joint range of motion and muscle function, and maintain a level of functionality and comfort for the horse throughout the rehabilitation process. Taping applications to maintain functionality and comfort in training and assist with recovery will be explored as a means to facilitating overall soundness in the equine athlete.
RockTape FMTEquine is based on the obvious yet largely overlooked concept of muscles acting as a chain. Classically the anatomy has been taught on the “isolated muscle theory”, focusing on individual muscle action, with very little regard for movement as a whole. As a result,many rehabilitation, prevention and training programs are based on rudimentary concepts that focus on muscles in isolation.
