Mary also completed the advanced taping course “Dynamic taping” which gave her the ability to customize any tape job for any individual to improve muscle activation and decrease pain and muscle tightness, and an APTEI Shoulder course for diagnosing and treating different shoulder dysfunctions. Mary also completed the GLAD program, which focuses on treatment and education of osteoarthritis.
