    Injuries happen, and when they do, athletes and coaches need to have access to quick support. With Sports Injuries Guidebook, Second Edition, you will be equipped with the information you need for sports injury identification and return-to-play guidelines.

    Dr. Robert Gotlin, a former medical consultant to the New York Knicks, the New York Liberty, the New York Yankees, and the New Jersey Nets, has assembled 24 top specialists in sports medicine to create an authoritative guide covering more than 150 common sports injuries, including the following:
    • Concussions
    • Rotator cuff tears
    • Knee injuries
    • Bone fractures
    • Ligament sprains
    • Muscle strains and tears
    • IT band syndrome
    • Shin splits
    Chapters cover injuries for most body regions and include anatomical drawings of the injured area, a description of common causes, identification clues, an explanation of symptoms, immediate treatment options, and guidelines for returning to action.

    This second edition also features new chapters explaining how and why injuries happen, as well as different types of injection therapies and when they may be most beneficial. You’ll also learn how to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place with proper conditioning, body maintenance, and nutrition.

    With high-quality illustrations and a user-friendly format, Sports Injuries Guidebook will arm you with the expert guidance you need to understand injuries and get back in the game.
