Anatomy has been classically taught on the qisolated muscle theoryq, focusing on individual muscle action. Therapists frequently learn origin, insertion, innervation and action of muscles in a closed environment, with very little regard for their functional effect on movement as a whole. As a result, many sports and rehabilitation taping protocols are based on rudimentary concepts that focus on muscles in isolation, which limits views of how the body coordinates movement.In contrast, PowerTaping is based on the obvious yet largely overlooked concept of muscles acting as a chain. PowerTaping's revolutionary technique utilizes qlongitudinal anatomyq, or qmovement patternsq concept, the body's integration of movement via multi-muscle contractions as a means of connecting the brain to the body's uninterrupted fascial web in order to enhance rehabilitation and athletic performance via cutaneous (skin) stimulation.PowerTapinga#39;s revolutionary technique utilizes aquot;longitudinal anatomyaquot;, or aquot;movement patternsaquot; concept, the bodya#39;s integration of movement via multi-muscle contractions as a means of connecting the brain to the bodya#39;s uninterrupted fascial ...
