MusclePharm Sports Science Institute Hosts RockTape Fascial Movement Taping Workshop

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2014) - MusclePharm Corporation, a leading international, award-winning sports nutrition company, recently hosted a RockTape Fascial Movement Taping workshop to provide training and certification for kinesiology taping techniques. Fascial Movement Taping is a technique based on muscles acting as a chain to create efficient, fluid patterns.

The workshop, featuring Dr. Steven Capobianco, a certified sports chiropractic physician and exercise rehabilitation specialist who co-developed Fascial Movement Taping, was held at the MusclePharm Sports Science Institute in Denver. The workshop featured a review of the current literature supporting the theory of kinesiology taping and included a hands-on session where attendees practiced various taping techniques for rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, neuropathic pain, scar mobility and postural management.

More than 40 professionals, including trainers, massage therapists, physical therapists, and chiropractors, attended the conference, which also provided individuals the opportunity to become certified in Fascial Movement Taping.

"As a healthcare professional, I try to find the best ways to keep my athletes healthy on and off the field," Dr. Capobianco said. "RockTape has given me another tool in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities because of pain or inflammation."

The MusclePharm Sports Science Center & Research Institute is a 35,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art athletic and Institutional Review Board (IRB) compliant testing space, with the medical capacity to non-invasively evaluate an athlete's overall physical situation.
