Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Chris A. Klenck, M.D., Pharm.D.(University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: This well organized book details all pertinent aspects of sports medicine from exercise physiology to specific musculoskeletal injuries. It includes detailed illustrations, summaries of key points, and a CD-ROM to reinforce the information presented.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide comprehensive information regarding sports medicine with a special emphasis on rehabilitation. International contributors also provide diverse perspectives. The authors are successful in providing a unique approach to presenting sports medicine.
Audience: The authors intend the book to appeal to all members of the sports medicine team. Athletic trainers, physical therapists, and physicians will find it useful. However, as acknowledged by the authors, it is limited with respect to surgical care of the injured athlete.
Features: The book is organized in three major sections covering general principles of sports medicine, injury care and rehabilitation, and specific injuries. All sections are well done with the strongest contribution provided in the discussion on rehabilitation. Many useful illustrations are provided as well as a CD-ROM containing diagnosis-specific patient handouts and image bank. A more detailed discussion of common surgical treatment options would further enhance the value of this book.
Assessment: This well written and easy to read book provides a comprehensive discussion of sports medicine with an outstanding section covering injury care and rehabilitation. With the exception of surgical modalities, all pertinent aspects of sports medicine are well represented. It would be a valuable asset to all members of the sports medicine team, especially nonsurgical professionals.
