There are many people whom I wish to thank for their time and willingness to assist in this second edition. At F. A. Davis, Jennifer Pine provided wisdom and direction to bring my ideas and efforts to print. Her invaluable guidance can be seen throughout the text. The photographs were made possible through the expertise of Jason Torres. His dedication to his craft will benefit each athletic training student and professional who uses the text. The student models, Michelle Charko, Marshay Greenlee, Dan James, Kara Janokowski, Courtney Schnorr, and Jim Sommers, demonstrated patience and adaptability to create a successful photo shoot. Bernadette Buckley, PhD, ATC, provided her teaching knowledge and skill to guide the development of the instructor materials. Sean Wells, DPT, ATC, CSCS, conducted the literature reviews for the revisions of the research briefs. Kristin Ritter developed the chapter PowerPoint presentations. Michelle Boling, PhD, ATC, assisted with several areas of the text and provided another viewpoint. During the writing of this book, many health care professionals served as chapter reviewers. I would like to thank each of them for their time and expertise. Their suggestions helped to strengthen the text.
A project such as this is not possible without the assistance of numerous manufacturers and others associated with taping, wrapping, bracing, and padding products. I want to thank the following people.
