Overview

Functional taping is now recognised as a skill which is essential for those involved in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries and many other conditions such as muscle imbalance, unstable joints and neural control. This exceptional new Pocketbook of Taping Techniques takes the place of the highly successful text which was also edited by Rose Macdonald. It incorporates all the basic techniques vital to the practice of good taping but also includes chapters on new evidence-based procedures written by experts from around the world. To aid in the development of these techniques, this pocketbook demonstrates many new methods which may be used as indicated or modified to suit the clinical situation.

• Structured by body region with highly-illustrated descriptions of relevant taping techniques
• Covers all aspects of functional taping
• New techniques to alter muscle activity and proprioception based on scientific evidence
• Handy, portable size for easy reference in the field

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
