    MKT Sports and Athletic Kinetic Taping Certified Practitioner

    Course by : Dr. Mihir Somaiya


    MKT Sports and Athletic Kinetic Taping Certified Practitioner


    During Sports Medicine & Athletic Rehabilitation there is a predictable & visible pattern of compensation that is addressed by Kinetic tape with Menthol & Negative ions on the Kinetic Chain performance.

    When structures are altered as a result of the injury, the function responsible for performance is a classical example of Ankle Lateral Ligament Sprain & the performance of the Ankle itself in the context of the lower limb & in the context of the activity are affected. The alteration in structure or function leads to compensatory changes locally and at the distal site.

    MKT Kinetic taping incorporates a critical understanding of the kinetic chain, which over time will adapt to stress & compensatory pattern & activates the development of a Neurobiological feedback mechanism that accelerates the recovery. MKT incorporates Kinetic Chain activation links that connect one structure & function to another, resulting in a compensated Somatic dysfunction.

    A focused strategy that is uniquely developed by MKT Healthcare Innovation provides a favorable environment for the comprehensive approach to performance in Sports & Athletic rehabilitation.

    The Kinetic Taping activates force connectivity in the Kinetic Chain involved & the attention remains involved on the kinetic chain as well as the Fascial chain.

    The goals of Mentholated Kinetic Tape include normalization of movement patterns, strength balance, improve joint neuromuscular control & better performance in return to the athletic activity which is achieved by restoring normal sports kinesiology & the ability through MKT Healthcare Innovation in demonstration of sports-specific skills.

    The application of Kinetic Tape also focuses on a well-constructed rehabilitation plan that reduces the risk of reinjury & the breakage of the kinetic chain. The functionality of taping incorporates various phases of sports & athletic rehabilitation to enhance performance & Rehabilitation programs highly specific to the individual athlete.
