About This Book

This book explores how to recognize, treat, and prevent sports injuries and offers guidance on which sports and training techniques are most likely to lead to injury. Engaging in sports has numerous health benefits, but it's an unfortunate reality that it can also lead to injury. Some sports, such as football and cheerleading, are particularly notorious for causing harm to young athletes. Specializing in a particular sport or going too hard too fast can also lead to injury. But which injuries are most likely to occur, and how should they be treated in both the short- and long-term? When should an injured athelete consider surgery? When is it safe to get back in the game? Books in Greenwood's Q&A Health Guides series follow a reader-friendly question-and-answer format that anticipates readers' needs and concerns. Prevalent myths and misconceptions are identified and dispelled, and a collection of case studies illustrate key concepts and issues through relatable stories and insightful recommendations. Each book also includes a section on health literacy, equipping teens and young adults with practical tools and strategies for finding, evaluating, and using credible sources of health information both on and off the internet—important skills that contribute to a lifetime of healthy decision-making.
