    Athletic Injuries: Functional Taping and Bracing provides students with a comprehensive, highly visual guide to managing athletic injuries with effective taping and bracing strategies. Each chapter of the text focuses on a different area of the body and presents critical information regarding types of injuries along with various current taping and bracing techniques.

    The opening chapter focuses on the foot, first providing information about chronic foot and lower leg injuries, then introducing arch taping procedures, low dye technique methods, the X-arch taping method, and more. Proceeding chapters address specific taping and bracing procedures for the ankle, lower leg, knee, hip, thigh, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, and digits. Through the various taping and bracing procedures, students learn about the mechanisms of common injuries to these areas of the body. They become knowledgeable regarding the prevention, recognition, and treatment of common sport-related injuries.

    Designed to help students learn how to competently and confidently recognize and manage injuries suffered by athletes, Athletic Injuries is an ideal resource for courses in health science, exercise science, sports medicine, kinesiology, and physical therapy.

    Philip Pavilionis is a lecturer in the School of Community Health Sciences, as well as the clinical instructor for Nevada Sports Medicine, at the University of Nevada, Reno. He holds a M.S. in exercise science from California University of Pennsylvania and a B.S. in health science from the University of Nevada, Reno. His experiences as a former athlete, coach, and athletic trainer at every level of sport enable him to successfully relate to athletes, enhance their methods of physical conditioning, and progress the sports rehabilitation process to a successful outcome.
