From the Back Cover
In the time since the original edition of this book was published, the field has only continued to gain in popularity, and the science, concerns and practices have naturally evolved. This second edition, completely revised and expanded, continues to focus on high-yield, comprehensive, pertinent information on diagnostic and management strategies and techniques in sports medicine for medical students, residents and fellows.
While the general outline of the book remains the same, each chapter has been updated significantly to reflect the latest in sports medicine research and practice, divided into three sections. Part I presents the essential concepts in sports medicine, including evaluation and exercise prescription, hydration and nutrition, and doping. Conditions and injuries to the upper and lower extremity, spine and hip are discussed in part II, with the latest management strategies outlined in a step-wise approach. Part III is dedicated to considerations for special populations, namely the master, female, pediatric and adaptive athlete.
Bringing together the latest information in a practical, user-friendly format, Essential Sports Medicine, Second Edition will be an excellent textbook for students, residents and fellows in sports medicine and primary care.
