Abstract: The premier text for athletic taping and bracing is back in a stunning fourth edition. Newly expanded to cover casting techniques, Athletic Taping, Bracing, and Casting, Fourth Edition With Web Resource, continues to set itself apart from the pack with superior photos and illustrations, precise step-by-step instructions, and pinpoint focus on the techniques that athletic trainers and therapists are most likely to apply in clinical practice. Author Ian McLeod joins veteran author David Perrin in this fourth edition to lend further expertise in the application guidelines and precautions for casting and splinting. ... With its concise anatomical descriptions and detailed anatomical illustrations similar to those normally found in advanced texts on anatomy, Athletic Taping, Bracing, and Casting clearly highlights the mechanisms of injury that are crucial for understanding effective taping, bracing, and casting. To further support the practice, the book also presents basic stretching and strengthening exercises for injury rehabilitation. These exercises are illustrated for each body part and can be used in conjunction with the taping, bracing, and casting techniques to prevent injury and help rehabilitated patients maintain strength and flexibility and safely return to play. The clear instructional guidance and robust visual support offered in Athletic Taping, Bracing, and Casting, Fourth Edition, will allow both future and current athletic trainers to build proficiency--and then mastery--of the performance of these techniques.
