|11/1/19||Marjon Sports Clinic||3||K taping and Rigid taping upper and lower limb.
|Reflective Summary||Areas for further Improvement plus action plan|
|In the build-up to my soft tissue to my exam, I did not feel very confident with taping. I particularly struggled with rigid taping and the best places to put k tape on an injured body part for the most effective support. I researched lots of different ways to k tape each body part and looked at the evaluation for each. I practiced on a client with both tapes starting with the ankle and working my way up each body part until I got to the trapezius. I noted down which body parts I struggled taping the most and went back to these to check I perform it without guidance.||Continue practicing taping a variety of body parts by exploring and researching different techniques which may be more effective than others. Use taping alongside other soft tissue techniques such as stretching and STM.
|Returning to reflections at a later date|
|I feel these hours spent practicing really helped my knowledge and benefited me in my exam as I felt a lot more confident and therefore was calmer when handling the tape. Consequently I did not feel like I was struggling with the basics such as cutting the tape and handling it without touching the glue, this resulted in a much smoother application.|
