INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON NEUROMUSCULAR TAPING CONCEPT

INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON NEUROMUSCULAR TAPING CONCEPT

Methodology, Results and Clinical Experiences

Auditorium Universitas Pembangunan Nasional Veteran Jakarta, Indonesia

21-22 January 2017

In recent years the NeuroMuscular Taping have given important results in post surgical, orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation. Cardiovascular stroke, central nervous system and spinal trauma, pediatric CP and degenerative neurological diseases are costly treatment areas which require time and resources that many health care systems have difficulty in caring for. High levels of results means that NeuroMuscular taping is at the forefront in the discovery of new therapeutic techniques which improve patient outcomes without overloading their economic situations. NeuroMuscular taping is a non-invasive, non-pharmacological treatment system, that is capable of offering a mechanical stimulation promoting cellular metabolism and activating the body’s natural healing abilities through normalizing body neuromuscular proprioception.

NeuroMuscular Taping was introduced in November 2015 and has been quickly well accepted in Indonesia. Indonesia with its growing population faces difficult health based problems in the future. Stroke, cardiovascular disease, CP, autism, Down syndrome, Parkinsons, Multiple sclerosis, respiratory disease are some of the current day and future rehabilitation challenges. Cost effective treatment options through professional training is primary in any government health service planning foreseeing future needs.

This NMT Indonesia Symposium is the work of our dedicated and enthusiastic teaching staff and highly trained practioners. Research and clinical studies from various health areas will assist in understanding of how NeuroMuscular taping may improve our treatment choices. Indonesian clinical trials together with published articles on the effectiveness of NMT will follow you in making the best therapeutic decisions improving you patients.

CONVEGNO TAPING NEUROMUSCOLARE RIABILITAZIONE, SPORT E FITNESS RIMINI, ITALY 4 GIUGNO 2016

CONVEGNO TAPING NEUROMUSCOLARE

RIABILITAZIONE, SPORT E FITNESS

RIMINI 4 GIUGNO 2016

Il Taping NeuroMuscolare apre le porte al fitness e allo sport. Il sistema terapeutico NMT, oramai di largo utilizzo in riabilitazione, è anche un valido supporto al miglioramento della performance, alla prevenzione di traumi, aiuta nel dimagrimento e nella tonificazione di chi svolge attività motoria continua, grazie alla sua forte azione vascolarizzante e drenante.

Il NMTConcept offre ai professionisti dello sport e della riabilitazione una risorsa in più per migliorare la risposta del soggetto, riducendo i tempi di recupero dall’allenamento, prevenendo affaticamento e traumi e in generale migliorando ogni tipo di performance.

Il Taping NeuroMuscolare è una tecnica non invasiva e non farmacologica, che attraverso l’applicazione di un nastro adesivo ed elastico con particolari caratteristiche meccano-elastiche offre una stimolazione biomeccanica in grado di creare spazio nei tessuti, favorire il metabolismo cellulare, attivare le naturali capacità di guarigione del corpo e normalizzare la propriocezione neuromuscolare.

Per questo negli ultimi anni la metodica ha raggiunto importanti risultati nella riabilitazione ortopedica postchirurgica e nella riabilitazione neurologica dell’ictus cerebrale, nel trauma spinale e in altre patologie neurologiche degenerative. L’alto livello dei risultati fa sì che il Taping NeuroMuscolare sia all’avanguardia tra le nuove tecniche terapeutiche utilizzate in medicina.

Nel convegno vedremo le sperimentazioni di alcune università Italiane e gli effetti sulla stabilità posturale, sul defaticamento, sull’endurance sportiva, sulla respirazione e nel trattamento degli ematomi, il ruolo che può avere in Sport come il nuoto, la Pallavolo, la ginnastica ritmica, l’atletica estrema, il Judo, e in attività come il walking, il Pilates e il fitness.
