Sports physiotherapy students can easily become overwhelmed by an excessive presentation of techniques they are unlikely to ever use in the field. The techniques presented in this book are not only those most frequently applied in clinical practice but they can easily be mastered by students during a single term. "Athletic Taping and Bracing, Third Edition", was written as both a guide for lecturers and an aid to students. It includes more than 490 full-colour illustrations and photographs, providing invaluable visual aids for successful applications. With its concise anatomical descriptions and detailed anatomical illustrations similar to those normally found in advanced texts on anatomy, the book clearly highlights the mechanisms of injury that are crucial for understanding effective taping and bracing. The coverage of rehabilitation exercises as well as prevention will help readers become more effective health care providers for athletes and other active people with musculoskeletal injuries and problems. It provides effective physical support for injuries.
