Functional taping is now recognised as a skill which is essential for those involved in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries and many other conditions such as muscle imbalances, unstable joints and neural control. This exceptional new Pocketbook of Taping Techniques is the replacement for the highly successful text which was also edited by Rose Macdonald. It incorporates all the basic techniques vital to the practice of good taping but also includes chapters on new evidence-based procedures written by experts from around the world.
