What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“The strengths of the text are its stepwise instruction of application of taping procedures and the use of primal pictures illustration.”
Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy
(November 2005)

For the text
“...stands out as the best of its kind, with its emphasis on mastering the anatomy of the human body, clear illustrations, and presentation of stretching and strengthening techniques to limit the athlete's dependence on the artificial assistance of taping and bracing.”
(review of first edition)
