Written in cooperation with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), Athletic Training and Sports Medicine: An Integrated Approach, Fifth Edition is a multi-purpose, multi-course text that emphasizes the post-injury management techniques used by athletic trainers and physicians in management of orthopaedic injuries. This classic text has been re-titled to more accurately reflect the topical coverage of injury management and care.
Richly illustrated and full of evidence-based practice, this text describes surgical techniques and their implications on rehabilitation/activity and captures the totality of injury management including: pathology, immediate management, diagnostic imaging, definitive and differential diagnosis, medical management, medications, surgical intervention, post-injury and/or post-surgical management, and rehabilitation.
Athletic trainers are well educated on how to evaluate, manage, and rehabilitate athletic injuries. However, no other mainstream textbook describes what is involved with common surgical procedures and how those procedures affect the treatment and rehabilitation process and the eventual return to activity. Athletic Training and Sports Medicine: An Integrated Approach serves as a primary reference to tie it all together.
Reviewer: Robb Duncanson, MEd, ATC, CSCS (University of Tennessee at Knoxville) Description: This book presents an integrated approach to athletic training, including evaluation, rehabilitation techniques, and surgical and nonsurgical management options. First published in 1984, the previous edition was published in 2005. Purpose: This book aims to cover the many different facets of care athletic trainers will face over time. Audience: The author states that the book is "written for the reader who has a good understanding of human anatomy and clinical diagnostic skills and who is familiar with the basic principles of acute injury management, therapeutic modalities, and therapeutic exercise." Features: It covers a wide range of topics that clinicians will encounter. Each area is covered expertly and in great depth, and the book considers each topic from various treatment perspectives. Figures appropriately highlight key features and content. Assessment: Orthopedic medicine is a constantly evolving field, and this update will serve clinicians well. With its wide-ranging and accurate content, this is a book that clinicians will refer to often.
