From Satisfied Users of the Second Edition
"Excellent practical book for clinicians. This very practical book that uses symptom-oriented chapters to provide very helpful guidance to anyone who sees sports medicine patients. It is useful for physical therapists (like me) but my colleagues who are doctors and masseurs also use it. I thoroughly recommend it and find its illustrations of physical examination particularly useful" - A reader from Seattle, USA
"Practical sports medicine book for physiotherapists, sports physicians This definitive sports medicine text book of 920 superbly-illustrated pages is the 'gold-standard' of sports medicine books. Its main emphasis is conservative care of musculoskeletal conditions and it is particularly up to date in management of overuse tendon conditions, the latest on shoulder rehabilitation, management of troublesome back problems and the athletic groin. It also covers issues such as enhancing sports performance with nutrition and psychology, traveling with a team and ethical issues in sport. The first edition was a great success but this second edition is a far superior book. And it is exceptional value for money. I strongly recommend those working with athletes and those treating musculoskeletal conditions to check this Australian-Canadian book out fully. It's a gem" - A physical therapist at Whistler, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the Author:
The second edition is a very worthwhile upgrade for those who already have the first edition as there have been many advances in treatment of sports medicine problems and every page has been reviewed and updated. In particular, you will appreciate the new material on tendinopathies, shoulder rehabilitation, low back pain and groin pain since the first edition. The medical chapters on minor head injury, heat stroke and asthma, for example, reflect the latest thinking on these conditions. This edition is fully referenced but also maintains the handy 'recommended readings' from the first edition. The new chapters include 'Beware: conditions masquerading as sports injuries', 'Biomechanics of common sporting activities', The patient with longstanding symptoms', 'The disabled athlete', 'Joint-related symptoms without acute injury', 'Exercise prescription for health', and 'Ethics and sports medicine'. The contribution of numerous leading international physiotherapists and physicians is a new benefit for Clinical Sports Medicine.
