Blood Brotherhood Wrap-up Event – Kinesio Taping
Saturday, May 6, 2017 – 11:00am-2:00pm
207 SW Greenville Blvd.
Are you an adult male (18+) living with a bleeding disorder? Let’s wrap it up! You are invited, along with your spouse/partner, for a “BB Wrap-Up”. Jennifer Newman, Physical Therapist at UNC-Chapel Hill, will teach you about using kinesio tape (KT). In this session, Jennifer will focus on how to prepare and apply the tape for acute muscle or joint bleeds, and to decrease pain and/or swelling in chronically affected joints.
Kinesio tape (sometimes called kinesiology tape) has been widely used by athletes in recent years. You've probably seen it in use, but may not have known its name or purpose. If you watched any of the Olympic Games last summer you would have seen it on athletes in sports ranging from archery and beach volleyball to diving, gymnastics and water polo. In our session, Jennifer will focus on how to prepare and apply the tape for acute muscle or joint bleeds, and to decrease pain and/or swelling in chronically affected joints.
The program was such a success in 2016 we are hosting it again, Down East! Please consider joining us for lunch and the hands on educational session. We encourage those attending to wear loose clothing for taping activity and there will be private restrooms available to change.
Please register by Monday, May 1. We look forward to seeing you in Greenville!
