    Kinesio elastic sports tapes are becoming increasingly popular with physiotherapists, sports coaches, athletes and the general public for all sorts of pain relief. Those keen to learn more about their use will be interested in a recently-published book by New Talents Press, which describes the correct techniques for Kinesio taping in an easy-to-understand way.

    In recent years quite a number of sports lovers and pain sufferers have resorted to Kinesio tapes for pain relief, rehabilitation of body functions, protection and stabilisation of joints, and even strengthening of muscles.

    However, chronic pain cases at different stages call for different relief methods. In the absence of an appropriate diagnosis, taping based on hearsay methods will delay proper therapy and could in fact aggravate the pain.

    Written by Alexendra HO, Lecturer in the Department of Hotel, Service & Tourism Studies at IVE, a member institution of the VTC, the book details the concepts and applications of the Kinesio taping technique as advised by Kinesio Taping Association International. Mr Ho, who was among the first group of registered physiotherapists to receive training in the technique, has further refined these concepts based on his own clinical experiences. The technique can relieve many common pain conditions like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, jogger’s heel and shoulder pain.

    The writer sets out and demonstrates applications of the taping technique to the neck, waist, back, wrist, arm, knee, leg and ankle, stating succinctly the causes and impacts of different pain conditions. The book will provide a valuable reference for people sustaining sports injuries or suffering from chronic pain.

    Founded in 2007 under the Vocational Training Council (VTC), New Talents Press publishes academic as well as popular literature of quality and diversity to broaden the frontiers of knowledge and champion creativity. Website: http://newtalents.vtc.edu.hk/newtalents/
