Book
Rate this:

With a growing number of people, young and old, engaged in a variety of physical activities, the field of sports medicine has gained greater importance for medical professionals. Nonsurgical Sports Medicine provides a comprehensive guide for the physician whose practice includes preparing patients to take part in sports as well as diagnosing and treating any resulting injuries.

Nonsurgical Sports Medicine begins with an overview of the principles of the preparticipation medical evaluation and outlines how preexisting medical conditions may be optimally managed in the athlete. Individual chapters cover the evaluation and treatment of head and spine injuries, injuries to the upper and lower extremities, and overuse syndromes. The book also addresses such important issues as infectious diseases, ergogenic agents, the needs of older and young athletes, women in sports, and the effect of environmental conditions on athletes. Along with detailed discussions of the anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system, the authors describe specific maneuvers during the physical examination which are important for evaluation and diagnosis. Nonsurgical Sports Medicine provides a broad range of information that complements a physician's general knowledge and that will be invaluable in assessing patients with sports-related injuries.
