Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation presents taping techniques for use on all body areas in both physical therapy and modified athletic training. This easy-to-use reference contains 50 strap taping techniques with Leukotape that help support or control joint mobility and provide greater stability than other methods of taping. Though the text focuses on strap taping for physical therapy, it also includes a variety of sport-related taping and other techniques used in orthopedic rehabilitation. Many of these techniques can also be used or modified for use with neurological and pediatric patients or clients.

Each taping technique is shown step by step through the use of full-color photographs. In addition, an accompanying DVD provides detailed demonstrations of all tape applications. By referring to more than 200 photos and illustrations with video sequences, readers will experience a dynamic and detailed presentation for learning strap taping techniques.

Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation follows a regional approach in presenting appropriate techniques for injuries and other conditions for the ankle and foot; the knee; the cervical, thoracic, and lumbopelvic area; the shoulder; and the elbow, wrist, and hand. The text includes a discussion of the types of tape currently used in treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and presents theories on effectiveness of taping. It also details taping precautions, supplies, and guidelines for application so that readers can be confident they are applying the appropriate taping methods to suit the needs of their patients, clients, and athletes. In addition to an explanation of taping techniques, the text includes photos and illustrations of anatomical references and landmarks. Readers will find reviews of functional range of motion, current evidence on the efficacy of taping, screening tools used in determining the appropriate technique, alternative bracing techniques, and case studies illustrating the benefits of effective taping.

Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation is an excellent resource for both students and professionals in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and athletic training seeking guidance in the proper selection and effective application of strap taping techniques. With full-color photos and video sequences, Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation and the accompanying DVD offer readers a dynamic way to learn and review a range of taping techniques used in treating sport and orthopedic injuries.

Anne Keil, PT, DPT, is a physical therapist and supervisor of rehabilitation services at the University of Colorado Hospital at Stapleton and Park Meadows Rehabilitation Clinics in Denver. Dr. Keil has worked in a variety of areas, including outpatient orthopedics, neurology, inpatient, skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and home health care.

Dr. Keil received her doctorate in physical therapy in 2005 from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts. She earned her BS in physical therapy in 1991 and BS in community health science in 1989 from California State University at Fresno. Dr. Keil is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

As a reference, this book provides a quality source of information when considering taping techniques for an injury or condition. The explanations of the taping techniques use both written and visual descriptions to help with understanding and application.

Doody’s Book Review

"Physical therapists, athletic trainers, and others involved in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions, especially those fresh out of their educational training, will find the text full of good ideas and places to start including strapping tape as part of their approach to athlete and patient care.”
