Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The choice of topics and the immense effort that went into the search for appropriate materials is commendable." (Evidence Based Medicine, April 2009)

“This book offers a unique, high quality presentation of current clinical evidence…while placing more emphasis on injury prevention and refining literature search techniques.”(Doodys Reviews)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Joseph Ewald, M.D.(Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: Each of the 30 chapters in this book correlates with a clinically relevant sports medicine-related question that various authors seek to answer using currently available medical evidence. It is an updated revision of the original 2002 edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinicians in sports medicine with answers to commonly encountered questions by reviewing the most current medical literature. Given the expanding emphasis on, and availability of, evidence-based sports medicine, this is an extremely worthwhile goal..
Audience: The book is written for practitioners in the field of sports medicine. The editors are credible authorities and the authors work in various areas in sports medicine (e.g. orthopedic surgery, primary care, physiotherapy, epidemiology, emergency medicine, etc.).
Features: The 30 chapters are grouped into six sections: prevention, acute injury, chronic conditions, injuries to the upper limb, injuries to the groin and knee, and injuries to the lower leg. The questions are relevant to the clinical practice of most any sports medicine practitioner. Some examples include whether or not sports injuries really can be prevented and how to best diagnose and treat spondylolysis in the athlete. The authors then explain their search methods and present the findings in both text and summarized table format. Each chapter ends with a conclusion and summary of key messages. The material is then reviewed with a set of multiple choice questions, essay questions, and case studies. This format provides the reader easy access to take-home points. By the editors' own admission, this is not a comprehensive reference. The precise question/answer-based research methods make the literature searches both accurate and relevant, but also limit the scope of the content. Many topics in sports medicine are not included or have no current high-level evidence to present.
Assessment: This book offers a unique, high quality presentation of current clinical evidence in sports medicine. It updates the 2002 edition, while placing more emphasis on injury prevention and refining literature search techniques. Expanded methods of self-review for the reader are also implemented. The precise question investigated in each chapter makes the resultant literature search findings more accessible and relevant, but also limits the scope content. The expanding body of available evidence in sports medicine justifies the publication of this new edition.
