    Thoroughly updated and improved, Sports Injuries: Their Prevention and Treatment, Third Edition, remains an essential handbook for athletic trainers, physical therapists, and physicians.

    Written by two eminent orthopedic surgeons, the book addresses
    • acute treatment of athletic injuries,
    • the biomechanics of sports injuries,
    • preventive measures,
    • methods of treatment,
    • sports injuries by specific area,
    • injuries during specialized activities,
    • risks to children and adolescents, and
    • training of different parts of the body.

    The clarity of the artwork that made the previous editions of this book so helpful has been maintained. Each of the chapters opens with a series of photographs illustrating the part of the body that will be examined in detail, with page references to where specific injuries are discussed. The authors also point out relevant anatomical features in MRI and CT images to better explain how to interpret them. A chapter on rehabilitative exercises and protocols also contains helpful diagrams.

    Examples of injuries are drawn from the full range of international sports, from team games to recreational pursuits.

    With superb color photographs and medical images, specially commissioned full-color diagrams, and an extensive glossary, this comprehensive text is indispensable to all those involved in sport.


    Text and reference for sports medicine specialists, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, physiotherapists, and athletic trainers.
