Review:

"It is organized by individual sport and the injuries common to them. Each chapter includes the biomechanics of the sport, injury prevention strategies and sport-specific rehabilitation concepts." ( Progress 2002-12-01)

"This book begins with a valuable introduction to biomechanics." "The book is well written and the strength of the book lies in the broad spectrum of sports it covers." "I would recommend this book for clinicians who work primarily with an athletic population and would like to gain more insight on the biomechanics related to sport-specific injuries." ( Physical Therapy 2002-04-01)

"This book is an excellent resource for those working with athletes in several different sports, helping to build an understanding of the injuries that are common with each sport." ( National Strength & Conditioning Association 2002-01-01)

Book Description:

Treating the athlete, both professional and weekend warrior, is one of the fastest growing areas in physical therapy. This book will serve the needs of both physical therapists who see athletes and students in sports PT courses. To effectively rehabilitate the injured athlete and to provide advice for prevention of future industries, it is critical that the clinician understands the mechanisms of injury for the specific sports. Modern technology has allowed for precise analysis of the biomechanics of each individual sport. Our book will be the first in the PT literature to take advantage of this knowledge. It's focus is to explain the biomechanics of each sport, the mechanism of injury, the common injuries associated with each sport, specific warm up exercises and a sport specific approach to rehabilitation of the injured athlete.
