Combines acupressure and massage to treat pain using elastic tape • Shows how the use of an elastic, adhesive tape works with the body’s own motions to combine the actions of acupressure and massage • Presents both therapeutic and preventative techniques for acute and chronic pain • Contains step-by-step instructions illustrated in full color detailing how to self-treat pain in all parts of the body Sufferers of chronic pain well know the frustration of treatments involving endless rounds of drugs or expensive physical therapy--that may or may not offer relief. In Acupressure Taping, authors Hecker and Liebchen present a comprehensive guide to a new method of pain treatment--acutaping--which offers a much simpler and more effective alternative. In acutaping, elastic tape is placed over the afflicted area in accordance with related acupuncture points. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the elastic tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area. Because the skin adheres to the tape, it is shifted against the subtissue during motion, causing lymph tissue to drain and connective tissue to be massaged. The authors show that most bodily dysfunctions can be self-treated through this innovative method. Combining elements of Chinese medicine with osteopathy, acutaping produces a method of treatment for ailments ranging from back pain and tennis elbow to menstrual pain and migraines. Acutaping is an easy and effective treatment--without side effects--that offers welcome relief to sufferers of chronic pain.

Anatomy has been classically taught on the "isolated muscle theory", focusing on individual muscle action. Therapists frequently learn origin, insertion, innervation and action of muscles in a closed environment, with very little regard for their functional effect on movement as a whole. As a result, many sports and rehabilitation taping protocols are based on rudimentary concepts that focus on muscles in isolation, which limits views of how the body coordinates movement.In contrast, PowerTaping is based on the obvious yet largely overlooked concept of muscles acting as a chain. PowerTaping's revolutionary technique utilizes "longitudinal anatomy", or "movement patterns" concept, the body's integration of movement via multi-muscle contractions as a means of connecting the brain to the body's uninterrupted fascial web in order to enhance rehabilitation and athletic performance via cutaneous (skin) stimulation.

Research suggests that ergonomists tend to restrict themselves to two or three of their favorite methods in the design of systems, despite a multitude of variations in the problems that they face. Human Factors and Ergonomics Methods delivers an authoritative and practical account of methods that incorporate human capabilities and limitations, environmental factors, human-machine interaction, and other factors into system design. The Handbook describes 83 methods in a standardized format, promoting the use of methods that may have formerly been unfamiliar to designers. The handbook comprises six sections, each representing a specialized field of ergonomics with a representative selection of associated methods. The sections highlight facets of human factors and ergonomics in systems analysis, design, and evaluation. Sections I through III address individuals and their interactions with the world. Section IV explores social groupings and their interactions (team methods), and Section V examines the effect of the environment on workers. The final section provides an overview of work systems-macroergonomics methods. An onion-layer model frames each method; working from the individual, to the team, to the environment, to the work system. Each chapter begins with an introduction written by the chapter's editor, offering a brief overview of the field and a description of the methods covered. The Handbook provides a representative set of contemporary methods that are valuable in ergonomic analyses and evaluations. The layout of each chapter is standardized for ease-of-use, so you can quickly locate relevant information about each method. Content descriptions are brief, and references are made to other texts, papers, and case studies. Standard descriptions of methods encourage browsing through several potential methods before tackling a problem.
