Students have often commented on the need for a concise textbook on sports medicine that presents the essential information otherwise scattered across several larger textbooks on other topics. The Key Topics format here enables a mass of relevant information to be presented accessibly. Those studying for programmes in sports medicine, orthopaedic surgery, and physiotherapy will certainly find this a valuable and practical resource.
