The successful and acclaimed An Illustrated Guide to Taping Techniques has now been fully updated and expanded in its second edition.
Injuries are a constant problem in sporting life and often require immediate, on-the-spot action to alleviate pain and limit further damage. This book addresses the two most essential elements of effective taping - recognition of injuries and application of techniques.
Accessible, portable and easy to use, the book is organized into two sections: the first covers taping supplies and their use, taping objectives, guidelines, basic pathology and key taping strategies; the second shows taping techniques in precise, step-by-step stages illustrated by color photographs. Techniques are further illustrated by physical demonstration in the DVD accompanying the book.
Good taping is a matter of practice, but this book goes further than simply showing HOW to tape – it explores the reasons WHY we tape, and the therapeutic effect it has on the physiology, neurophysiology, biomechanics, neuromusculoskeletal system and psychology of an individual. The possible adverse reactions to these systems are also covered, as well as dermatological adverse reactions.

'This book clearly meets its intentions of providing its readers with clear, logical and reasoned approaches to taping in a sporting context.
The DVD adds greatly to the learning process...The detail of each technique is excellent and helpful hints are added at appropriate times within the book. Combined with appropriate tables, useful anatomical refreshers and mnemonics the book creates an effective learning tool for students and a useful reference guide for more experienced practitioners who require a quick refresher.
I would recommend this clearly presented and clinically useful resource to teaching establishments, departments and to individuals to allow the maintenance and development of current taping skills.' Colin Paterson (English Institute for Sport) / Physical Therapy in Sport 11 (2010) : 104
'The layout is easy to follow and well structured, and the images are clear. The emphasis on assessment and clinical reasoning supporting the description of the taping methods is particularly useful. This well-written and presented manual would be a useful resource for students as a sound intorduction to the subject, and for more experienced clinicians who are looking to refresh, refine or update their taping skills. The accompanying DVD is a useful addition.' Gerard Greene / Physiotherapy 96 (2010) : 352
