Athletic Taping and Bracing Book-3rd Edition/DVD Package

The premier text for athletic taping and bracing is now revised in a stunning third edition. Athletic Taping and Bracing retains its emphasis on the techniques most commonly used by athletic trainers and therapists while integrating the science of anatomy and injury mechanisms with the practice of athletic taping and bracing. Plus, the third edition expands on traditional taping by including methods for rigid strap taping and elastic kinesiology taping.
As part of the this book and DVD package, the Athletic Taping and Bracing, Third Edition, book includes more than 480 full-color illustrations and photos, providing invaluable visual aids for both students and professionals. These include superb three-dimensional anatomical images from Primal Pictures. The photos that depict taping sequences feature tape with darkened edges that enable readers to distinguish the layers and patterns of the tape applied in each step.
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 text thoroughly discusses and illustrates the general principles of taping and bracing for each major joint and body region. The third edition adds step-by-step instructions for 10 additional techniques, including Kinesotaping and strap taping techniques for gastrocnemius strains, Achilles tendinitis, and arch problems; knee, quadriceps, and hip problems; shoulder and elbow hyperextension laxity; epicondylitis; and wrist and hand issues. The book also features newly added instructor resources consisting of an image bank and testing checklists to help students master the taping procedures.
The text covers the 46 most frequently applied taping and bracing procedures in clinical practice, some of which are broken down into as many as 16 steps. It illustrates procedures for fabricating protective pads and orthotics, and it details the dos and don'ts of taping and bracing. To emphasize rehabilitation as well as prevention, Athletic Taping and Bracing, Third Edition, also presents basic stretching and strengthening exercises for injury rehabilitation. These exercises, presented and illustrated for each body part, focus on flexibility, strength, and proprioception. Combined with the taping and bracing procedures, the exercises will help rehabilitated athletes maintain strength and flexibility and safely return to play.
To complement the book, the Sport Taping Basics DVD, Second Edition, is included in this special package. The DVD brings the book to life by visually demonstrating 32 specific procedures. Each procedure is shown in its entirety without disruption. The taping procedure is then shown again to highlight the key steps of the procedure and includes close-ups and correct positioning of the athletic trainer and athlete, making the demonstrations easy to follow. Perrin also demonstrates how to cut, tear, and remove tape.
Expanded from the previous Sport Taping Basics DVD, the second-edition DVD demonstrates 19 recommended taping procedures for common injuries to the lower body (ankle, foot, leg, knee, hip, and thigh) and 13 procedures for the upper body (shoulder, elbow, wrist, thumb, and finger). Incorporated into those procedures for the second edition are 11 new strap taping and elastic kinesiology taping techniques. You can select the specific taping procedure you want to review from the DVD menu, making it fast and simple to find the procedure needed.
Together, Athletic Taping and Bracing, Third Edition, and Sport Taping Basics DVD, Second Edition, capture the art and science of taping and bracing through detailed explanations, spectacular images, and clear video demonstrations. Working individually or in tandem with one another, the book and DVD stay in step with current NATA competencies and practices and offer top-quality instruction. With all this, Athletic Taping and Bracing, Third Edition, and Sport Taping Basics DVD, Second Edition, are the premier instructional taping resources in the athletic training field.
