This revised third edition contains 80 illustrations now in full colour! The book is the winner of the highly commended prize in the Orthopaedics and Rheumatology Category of the 2007 British Medical Association Medical Book Awards. 'A previously good textbook has just got better! I particularly like the colour coding for chapters. Sections have been updated by experts in the individual topic areas. The new illustrations are used to demonstrate principles and example exercises. Brilliant: it is difficult to praise this book highly enough as it is an excellent textbook. The new illustrations, updated sections and use of eminent sports medicine specialists as co-authors help to reassure that every effort has been made to improve this book' - "BMA Reviewer Quote". "Clinical Sports Medicine" is one of McGraw-Hill Australia's best-selling titles - next to John Murtagh's "General Practice" and is also a most high-profile Australian title globally. The book was selected as the 2001 Book of the Year by the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Its appeal is that it is a comprehensive text on sports medicine and it adopts a broad, multi-disciplinary approach, therefore, sells well in fields such as massage therapy, physiotherapy and musculoskeletal specialties, as well as to sports physicians and sports trainers. This also means it has a broad appeal to medical students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, notably adopted on courses at Melbourne (where Peter Brukner is an associate professor), Monash, La Trobe, South Australia, Sydney and Griffith universities. Once more, as well as being a key title in the local and US medical catalogues, it is core to our growing sports medicine list. The two authors, Peter Brukner and Karim Khan, are high-profile sports physicians and academics, both having been heavily involved in the last three Olympic Games and presenting regularly overseas. Professor Brukner was the first non-American Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and is an inaugural Fellow of the Australian College of Sports Medicine. Professor Khan has been based at the University of British Columbia, Canada, since 1995 and runs the authors' website that strongly promotes the book using the cover as the main design theme, and includes abstracts that focus on sections applicable to particular disciplines.

It is a superb book for the clinician working with athletes, outlining the treatment of injuries in a straightforward and clear way. It is such a change to read a book written by physicians rather than surgeons, with consequently a much more functional approach! This book should be read by all sports physicians and physiotherapists in training and should be by the desk of anyone likely to treat athletes' injuries, GPs and specialists alike.
--British Journal of Sports Medicine
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, Canada
