Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott H. Grindel, MD (Spectrum Health - Reed City Campus)
Description: This is a very helpful reference for identification, management, and treatment (including rehabilitation) of a multitude of neurologic and musculoskeletal injuries. It provides new and unique illustrations that are available on the enclosed CD-ROM as well as numerous helpful tables within the text.
Purpose: It is intended as a guide to treating sports injuries.
Audience: The target audiences are "those practicing sports medicine, including sports medicine specialists, team physicians, athletic trainers, and sports physical therapists." This is an appropriate target audience for the information. The authors are a well recognized group of international authorities in their fields.
Features: The book covers a broad range of neurologic and musculoskeletal injuries seen in sports. The chapters are broken down into body areas. Each chapter identifies most common, less common, and more rare injuries to the particular body area and discusses them using tables, photos, and illustrations. It then presents a subchapter on rehabilitation of the injuries complete with illustrations. The tables, photos, and illustrations are novel and well done. The CD-ROM provided with the book makes the photos and illustrations available for presentations and teaching. The book seems to be focused more towards musculoskeletal injuries and injuries to the central nervous system and does not present most sports related medical problems or many neurologic problems. There is no bibliography or references.
Assessment: I liked the book very much. It provides a very good introduction to the most common sports-related injuries to various body regions and many uncommon injuries. I most enjoyed the photos and illustrations and found these new and refreshing in comparison to other books, which often present poorly composed photos and old illustrations. It is a highly valuable teaching tool for those entering the field of sports medicine and rehabilitation.
