This practical manual is intended for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, (sports) physiotherapists and nurses working with children. It is the second manual on this topic in the English language.
Main goals of this manual are the transfer of knowledge, clinical skills and the presentation of the most recent evidence and examples of best practice of the use of ET-Tape applications in children. Taping cannot be learnt from reading this manual alone. The author suggests that the readers not trained in using ET-Tape take an available taping course.
