    Review:

    Logical structure and good format ... a must for any clinician in
    sports medicine including surgeons, physicians, GPSIs and
    physiotherapists.
    -- Univardis, July 2007

    a "gold standard" review for a variety of sports medicine
    professionals... an incredibly versatile book.
    -- Doody's Book Review Service, January 2007

    From the Publisher:

    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
