Already integrated successfully in competitive sports, medical treatment and rehabilitation programs, K-Taping therapy offers physical, occupational and speech therapists a wide range of options for the treatment of infants, small children and younger patients. K-Taping can now be integrated into pediatric physiotherapy and speech therapy, aiding in the treatment of a range of conditions including postural defects, deformities of the feet and dysphagia. About the content K-Taping in theory - The properties, function and mode of action of elastic K-Tape - The effects of K-Tape therapy - The fundamentals of K-Tape application - Contraindications K-Taping in practice - The four major application techniques (muscle, ligament, correction and lymph applications) including common indications in children, and practical examples - The appropriate technique for more than 50 medical indications - Step by step guidance with photo series, practical tips and alternative applications About the author Birgit Kumbrink, founder and medical director of the international K-Taping Academy, Dortmund, Germany and one of the most experienced users and teachers of the treatment method internationally. The course companion and practical manual - for therapists, midwives and pediatricians Birgit Kumbrink, founder and medical director of the international K-Taping Academy, based in Dortmund, Germany, has been a K-Taping instructor for many years and is one of the most experienced users and teachers of the treatment method internationally. Birgit Kumbrink has written many articles about K-Taping for the medical press and has appeared on various medical programs on German radio and television. She has developed the fledgling elastic tape therapy from Asia into the K-Taping therapy that has now become established in Germany and other countries throughout Europe. A therapy that over the last 15 years has gained recognition as a meaningful and effective treatment in physiotherapy, medical applications and sports medicine. Birgit Kumbrink is responsible for the inclusion of K-Taping in many aftercare concepts, such as after breast cancer operations. She has also been the driving force behind the development of K-Taping techniques and applications and leads national and international studies in cooperation with clinics and therapist associations.
The history of rotator cuff tendinopathy started more than 150 years ago, when some types of shoulder pain were attributed to rupture of the rotator cuff tendon. In the third millennium, the pathogenetic mechanisms leading to rotator cuff problems are still debated. Although conservative measures are the first-line therapy, poor spontaneous tendon healing and progression from partial-thickness to full-thickness tears may mandate surgery. Biological, biomechanical and clinical studies have been conducted to establish the superiority of one technique over the other, but no clinical differences have been found. Although we know more about the pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of rotator cuff pathology, our efforts should be directed at trying to find the treatment that best fits the specific needs of each patient.This book collects current reviews on rotator cuff problems, with regard to both biological and clinical aspects, and provides practical hints on management and rehabilitation for sports physicians, surgeons, physiotherapists and athletic trainers.
Focusing exclusively on injury treatment and prevention in the young dancer, this comprehensive text addresses the unique needs of these athletes and stresses how their bodies differ in significant ways from adults, requiring that their training and clinical management be overseen by specialized personnel. The book opens with a discussion of the epidemiology of injury in the young dancer, followed by a description of screening procedures and a sample screening program. Physical therapy and resistance training are then covered, along with common conditions and injuries at the spine, hip, knee, and foot and ankle complex. Additional chapters discuss the use of diagnostic and interventional ultrasound, nutrition and bone health, psychological issues such as anxiety, eating disorders and peer relationships, and lastly the prevention of degenerative hip injuries. Prevention of Injuries in the Young Dancer is an essential resource with regard to the physical and psychological challenges facing young performers. It is relevant reading for dance medicine, sports medicine, and orthopedic professionals, as well as dancers, their parents, and especially those persons who promote their careers.

This atlas is a case-based guide to the interpretation of FDG PET-CT images in clinical scenarios faced by physicians during the routine practice of oncology. The book aims to help the practitioner to overcome diagnostic dilemmas through familiarization with the physiologic distribution of FDG, normal variants and benign findings. The main focus, however, is the imaging of major oncological diseases. Different pathologies are addressed in individual chapters comprising teaching files of cases, each of which corresponds to a common indication for PET-CT imaging, such as metabolic characterization of lesions, staging, restaging and evaluation of response to therapy. Each case is accompanied by an explanation of the patients history, interpretation of the PET-CT study, and a teaching point often supported by relevant literature. This book will be of great value to residents and practitioners in nuclear medicine, radiology, oncology, radiation oncology and nuclear medicine technology.
