Product description

Review

Numerous athletes and sportspeople are wearing various shades of taping these days. However, how many are wearing it in the correct manner to give maximum benefit? This book is targeted at professional therapists and athletes who want to administer some relief to any ongoing problem. Every body part is given space along with detailed images and a description of how and where to apply the tape. The author, John Gibbons, a registered osteopath, specialises in the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of sport-related injuries. The handy publication is separated into nine chapters, starting with an overview of kinesiology taping through to the nitty-gritty of taping techniques for lower limbs, knee joint, anterior and posterior thigh, lower back, trunk and pelvis, upper back and neck, upper limbs and forearm, hand and wrist. The final chapter deals with controlling oedema (swelling). The book is crammed with excellent photography and line drawings that assist the would-be applier of kinesiology tape in a clear and concise way. However, it also comes with an instructional DVD which goes through every body part in real time showing exactly how the tape is applied and Gibbons talking you through the step-by-step process. This leaves the applier in no doubt as to how and where to apply the tape. If you use kinesiology tape, this book is a must! --Athletics Weekly: April 2014

This is a wonderfully constructed book, full of clear photographs that show exactly how to use kinesiology tape. At 118 pages, it is a slim book and the images and diagrams make it very readable and easy to use for reference. It is divided into nine chapters, starting with an overview of taping. There is a useful comparison of conventional tape versus kinesiology tape, along with a well-written section covering the physiological changes made by using it. The sections that follow show how to tape areas of the body, finishing with a technique for oedema. I like that the author has taken the trouble to show where the site of pain is in relation to the start and finishing position of the tape. It is backed up with a 90-minute DVD. This is a very useful book to have in a clinic. --The Osteopath (magazine of General Osteopathic Council): September 2014
