With approximately 30 million runners in the US alone, running injuries are among the most common problems seen by physicians. The only diagnostic and treatment information heretofore has been available to physicians, but has come from general sports medicine or orthopaedics manuals. In this textbook, doctors O'Conner and Wilder propose effective management regimens in the treatment of all forms of running injuries. They focus on clinical management with an approach that details common features, diagnosis, and treatment of running injuries; associated medical problems; problems unique to specific classes of runners; rehabiliation guidelines; and major surgical considerations.
