Book Description

Applies the science of anatomy and injury mechanisms to the practice of athletic taping. By examining major joints and muscle groups students should master step-by-step taping and bracing techniques for preventing and managing sports injuries. The book is highly illustrated with many photographs and medical illustrations, enabling students to visualize underlying anatomical structures and injury mechanisms, and to learn proper methods for applying tape, braces, wraps and orthotics. The author discusses specific injuries (from sprains to contusions and ruptures), and describes techniques for treatment. He also presents simple stretching and lengthening exercises to help minimize an athlete's chance of re-injury.
