Dr. Dhananjoy Shaw
Kinesio Taping in Games and Sports (A good book for enhanced Performance and Fitness, Protection, Prevention and Rehabilitation)
About the book- The text, by the author, is most suited to the professional coach,
the athlete in the field and the sports medicine practitioner who are
members of the support team attached to players. Leaving aside the
professionals, even for a lay reader, the knowledge on how injured
muscles in our body can be saved from more injury, is helpful.
No more is sport an activity for physical fitness and enjoyment
and personal satisfaction. It has been turned into a statecraft and
sportpersons are slaves to work for the glory of the State. This is
leading to sportpersons attempted to reach the limits of physical
performances and consequent injuries. In some cases, it leads to the
end of their sports career.
The text speaks of the existing remedies to counter muscular
injuries, and also comments on the latest research done to open
new frontiers of hope for the affected athlete.
Of particular benefit are the illustrations accompanying the
text which explain the various techniques and tape position for use
on the injured person.
Arguably this text is the first attempt to add to the scarce
literature on the subject available in this part of the world. It is
hoped the targeted reader uses the information available between
the covers of this book, to his maximum benefit.
