Overview

<%COMM_TEXT%>This book is a must have for any physical therapist involved in the treatment of patients, athletes, or indeed anyone likely to come into contract with a range of sporting injuries including coaches, personal trainers and sporting enthusiasts. The author takes the reader on an educational journey through the entire taping process; from marking an area of dysfunction to preparing and cutting tape and application with variants shown for special problems. Opening with the principles and benefits of the Kinesiology taping method, explaining what it is and when and why you would apply it, the book then covers the correct application of tape to treat each individual area of pain and dysfunction. Through the use of pictorial demonstrations, including examples of injuries common to each area of pain and the subsequent variations in taping applications, the reader is clearly presented with over 50 special areas of pain, each identified through individual artistic illustrations. The author has the ability to explain this fascination, yet not widely understood, subject in a relatively simplistic way, helping every reader develop the ability to apply these phenomenal techniques, with confidence in any setting. <%END_COMM_GRP%>
