This week's post is from Jacqueline Chang, one of our Parramatta physios. Her areas of expertise include chronic pain and muscle energy techniques. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this week's topic.
A few weekends ago, I attended the Rocktape Australia Presenters Summit, proving to myself that as a 21st century physiotherapist, every day is a school day.
The BJC Health physio team were joined by Rocktape presenters from all across Australia for the inaugural Rocktape Australia Presenters Summit. Not only this, but we were lucky enough to host the event at our Chatswood clinic!
Our guest speaker was Dr Steve Capobiano (Capo) from Rocktape USA. He spent the weekend sharing new Rocktape content, research and workshopping myofascial rehabilitation ideas that are emerging from USA. And despite being incredibly jet lagged, Capo delivered all this content with flawless enthusiasm!
The weekend also provided a fantastic opportunity for us to share tips and tricks to aid the facilitation of our Rocktape courses around Australia.
What did I take away from this weekend?
- There is better evidence supporting the use of dynamic tape to treat pain and improve movement
- New taping techniques for scar tissue repair as well as techniques for postural taping to try out
- It is essential to work closely with our exercise physiology colleagues to ensure the best rehabilitation for musculoskeletal injuries.
It’s great to see improving evidence for dynamic taping!
