About This Book

As more people realize the cardiovascular, metabolic and muscular benefits that regular physical activity provides, the risk for potential injury also increases. To provide successful treatment, all persons involved in the management of injuries must have a thorough understanding of the healing process of the various tissues and also be familiar with the demands of different types of sports.

Written by three world-renowned experts, Sports Injuries, Fifth Edition, comprehensively covers the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries. Essential reading for all athletes, coaches/trainers, physiotherapists, nurses and doctors, the updated edition of this highly popular and well-established textbook skillfully integrates scientific background and evidence with practical application. Updated topics covered include:

  • Individual risk factors for sports injuries

  • Back and spine injuries in sport
  • Leg, knee and thigh injuries
  • Outdoor activities during extreme conditions
  • Ethical considerations in sports and exercise medicine

Richly illustrated with more than 600 color drawings and photographs, this book covers injuries resulting from the full range of international sports. For each type of injury examined, it details the symptoms, mechanism of injury, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation protocols and key points – clearly stating what both non-medical and medical professionals should do in each case of injury. This easy-to-follow textbook features a glossary of key terms and protocols with rehabilitation exercises to provide readers with a solid understanding about how to effectively treat, rehabilitate and prevent sports injuries.
