Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation CE Course follows a regional approach to taping techniques for use on all areas of the body. Containing 50 strap taping techniques, the course discusses the types of tape currently used in treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and presents theories on effectiveness of taping. Each taping technique is shown in the book using step-by-step, full-color photographs, and an accompanying DVD contains detailed demonstrations of all tape applications.

    A fillable study guide for the course is divided into units focusing on specific areas of the body: foot and ankle, knee, spine, shoulder, and distal upper extremities. Each unit provides a summary of that region and then connects the area of focus to specific chapters of the Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation book as well as videos on the DVD. Each unit also contains a learning activity to emphasize key points and clinical case studies that ask users to identify, evaluate, and present possible solutions for the athletes in each scenario. These practical tools will facilitate learning and challenge users on when and how to apply various strapping techniques.

    Strap Taping for Sports and Rehabilitation CE Course will guide practitioners in the proper selection and effective application of strap taping techniques. It offers a dynamic way to learn how to properly use strap taping to relieve pain from minor sport and orthopedic injuries.
