Kelsey Vineyard February 8, I purchased this book to help me better understand some taping methods for my undergraduate Athletic Training education.
This text is an excellent teaching reference for athletic training students or any person interested in the taping intervention. The author establishes a foundation for the reader, beginning with the basic knowledge of anatomical structures and the biomechanics of the joints and then discussing the appropriate application of tape and braces for treatment or prevention of injuries. There are numerous color illustrations of step-by-step instructions for each taping procedure described; the tape in the illustrations is outlined in black, making it easier for the reader to follow along. The anatomy pictures, published by Primal Pictures, are used to enhance the discussion of the bony, muscular, and surface anatomy for each joint. The text is augmented by palpation landmarks that are highlighted in a table, while new terms are bolded throughout the text and defined in a separate block to provide an easy reference for definitions. The book illustrates normal range of motions for each joint and includes the stretching and strengthening exercises that supplement taping and bracing. The format for each chapter is similar, making the book easy to follow and facilitating the use of the material by the student.
