Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kameno Bell, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This is an easy to read, basic guide to common sports injuries that can be used as a quick reference and provide brief descriptions of prognosis.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise reference for all clinicians involved in providing care for athletes of all levels. The book provides a concise reference for more common injuries and issues, but falls short of covering many injuries or issues. The author believes the book is useful because of its portability and that it can be read in its entirety. Although true, the content is limited.
Audience: The author intends the book for all clinicians caring for athletes, including physicians in training and practicing physicians. The book seems adequate as a quick reference for physicians in training and possibly for primary care physicians with a limited amount of exposure to athletes. The authors of the chapters are credible authorities.
Features: The book presents a systematic review of injuries to the major joints and extremities and reviews common preventive and management issues in separate chapters. There is a good discussion on concussions, pointing out the lack of uniformity of management. The book covers the role of cognitive testing, but only as an added tool.
Assessment: This is ideal for new, in training physicians and medical students and those with limited exposure to athletes. There are more useful and comprehensive books in the field that can serve the purpose this book states.

"This condensed, yet fairly comprehensive, sports medicine manual provides an overview of common sports injuries seen in athletes of varying ages. The 11 chapters (primarily organized by body part) cover medical and musculoskeletal conditions and include discussions on both operative and nonoperative care. The book is written in an easy-to-read format, with topics often divided into pathogenesis, prevention, clinical findings, complications, treatment, and prognosis....The text covers most of the common injuries seen in sports medicine. Specific chapters devoted to concussion, the young athlete, and the female athlete are especially useful."—Mayo Clinic Proceedings
