Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Robb Duncanson, MEd, ATC, CSCS (University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: This illustrative guide to taping techniques is quick, easy, and fairly comprehensive.
Purpose: It is meant to serve an easy-to-use, illustrated guide to various taping techniques. This type of publication can be very useful to clinicians, providing information about the techniques in a timely fashion. The book meets its objectives to a large degree. Proper taping is very hard to summarize, as it evolves daily and with each clinician, within each setting.
Audience: It appears the book is written for both students and experienced clinicians, although the editor never clearly states who the intended audience is. She has assembled a large and diverse group of contributing authors.
Features: The book offers a wide range of taping techniques that will be useful in the clinic and in the field to a wide range of therapists. Several classic techniques are included that often get overlooked in some current books. These techniques are worth preserving, learning, and passing on.
Assessment: This is a fine addition to curricula that need a taping textbook. It is also very useful for seasoned clinicians as a quick and easy reference. It does not particularly differ from several other books that are available, but it does have a straightforward presentation that makes it a very good choice.
