    Summary: K-taping in theory - the special elastic tape's properties, basic principles and effects -- fundamentals of k-tape application -- contraindications. K-taping in practice -- the four major application techniques (muscle, ligament, correction, lymph applications), each described in detail and illustrated with a clinical case -- 70 particularly common medical conditions, and their treatment using k-tape applications -- each technique illustrated in up to six full-color photos and anatomical drawings -- concise step-by-step instruction, covering the specifics of each medical condition, plus additional practical tips -- memo boxes, summarizing the main points to remember.
