Highlights • My experience so far has been to use kinesiology tape, as a treatment adjunct, with patients who present with Parkinsons Disease (PD), Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury….. • Patients report increased confidence, awareness of limbs, movement control and ….. • We put tape where we put our hands and we use it for the same reason that we put our hands onto patients – sensory input, guidance, correction of alignment, balance of …… Full Article by Melissa Benyon Neurological Physiotherapist and Rocktape FMT Neuro Course developer. I started using therapeutic taping back in the late 1990’s, where my main objective was to purchase the most rigid zinc oxide tape on the market – how things have moved on! I used it for patients with neurological deficits, primarily for pain management, correction of shoulder alignment problems, stabilisation and muscle inhibition and recruitment and found it helpful. Following my attendance at a Rocktape taping course in 2014, I started using kinesiology tape – tape with elastic properties enabling the therapist to vary how much the tape is tensioned during application.

Increasingly studies are targeted at patient groups with pathology, as some studies investigating the...

Sam Brearey Interview

Sam is a young dinghy sailor, who already at the age of 25 has a proven track record on the international stage. Sam is a double world champion, triple European champion and double national champion.

Sam also makes sure he uses his knowledge and experience to support the development of young sailors, helping coach their skills to develop the next Olympic champion. Outside of Sam’s giving back to charity, he also mentors other athletes helping guide them on their journeys through sport and beyond. Sam’s dedication to training and development is well beyond his years, taking detail in all his preparation is key to his performance.

In order to ensure he has a strong full back post sport, Sam is successfully running his own business in sport around his training, while also being...
