This new revised third edition contains 80 illustrations now in full colour
Clinical Sports Medicine is a complete practical guide book to musculoskeletal medicine and physical therapy, covering all aspects of diagnosis and management of sports-related injuries and physical activity.
With over 1000 full color pages and a free patient information CD, Clinical Sports Medicine adopts an easy-to-use, symptom-oriented approach and describes multidisciplinary methods of treatment
It is a vital reference for all clinicians in musculoskeletal health including physiotherapists, masseurs, general practitioners, personal trainers, athletic trainers, and orthopedic surgeons. It is also important reading for advanced coaches, insightful athletes and students of sports-related subjects such as kinesiology, human movement studies and human kinetics.
In the fully-updated, full-colour, expanded Third Edition (DVD also available) Clinical Sports Medicine is established as a leading text on sports medicine; the 2nd edition received a 'Book of the Year' award. This 3rd edition is a major upgrade for content, visual appeal, and readability. Every chapter has been updated for this landmark 3rd edition and there are six entirely new chapters. More than 1000 full color photos and purpose-drawn artwork show presentations and demonstrate treatment techniques.
Clinical Sports Medicine explores many important aspects of sports medicine:
- fundamental principles of sports medicine - diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries - enhancement of sports performance - dealing with special groups of participants, including disabled and older athletes - management of medical problems - practical aspects of sports medicine
Clinical Sports Medicine has been fully updated from the popular 2nd edition (2000). It is even more practical, now superbly illustrated, easy-to-read and packed with substantially updated and new material. There are samples of several chapters online including the whole "Pain in the Achilles region" chapter. This book describes a completely symptom-oriented approach to treating clinical problems.
The practitioner can flick to the chapter that describes the patient presentation (e.g., longstanding groin pain, acute ankle injuries) and review the likely differential diagnoses, the clinical approach and the full colour pictures of the physical examination (physical examination for several major systems are also available as a separate DVD - 0074716972).
The reader of this third edition of Clinical Sports Medicine benefits from the wisdom of over 50 clinicians with world-wide recognition including Jenny McConnell, Jill Cook, Roald Bahr, Liza Arendt, Per Holmich, Ben Kibler, Timothy Noakes, Pekka Kannus, Kim Bennell, Paul McCrory, George Murrell, Kevin Singer and Meena Sran and Jon Karlsson.
