This book takes a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating nerve and vascular injuries in athletes. With guidelines written by experts in the field, readers will learn how to identify the symptoms and accurately diagnose injuries to the spine, including herniated discs, stingers and transient quadriparesis, in addition to peripheral nerve injuries and vascular entrapments in the extremities. Less frequent diagnoses, such as thoracic outlet syndromes, are addressed as well. Chapters cover anatomy and pathophysiology, mechanisms of injury, classification systems, and physical exam and diagnostics. Algorithms aid with differential diagnosis, and cases facilitate the ready integration of concepts into clinical practice. Treatment recommendations include nonsurgical options and therapeutic exercise regimens. Indications for surgical treatments are also discussed. Evidence-based support for recommendations is provided where appropriate. By presenting the essentials for managing nerve and vascular injuries, this book is an ideal resource for sports medicine physicians, athletic trainers and physical therapists.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Joseph Ewald, M.D.(Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a clinical guide to neurologic and vascular injuries encountered in sports medicine. The first third of the book addresses anatomy, physiology, exam techniques, and diagnostic tools; the latter two-thirds address specific neuropathic syndromes.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide clinicians working in the field of sports medicine a concise overview of neurologic and vascular injuries in athletes. Given the frequent occurrence of these injuries and the relative lack of resources addressing them specifically, this is a worthwhile goal.
Audience: Sports medicine practitioners are the intended audience. It is especially helpful for team physicians and/or practitioners of nonsurgical sports medicine. Residents and fellows interested in sports medicine will also find it helpful. The two editors and 26 authors are authorities in the field.
Features: The book first addresses anatomy and pathophysiology of the neurologic and vascular system, as well as physical examination maneuvers and diagnostic studies for both the neurologic and vascular systems. The second third covers specific neurovascular syndromes of the upper limb and the final third addresses specific neurovascular syndromes of the lower limb. This book is one of the first of its kind to address these injuries specifically in the context of sports medicine and it includes a welcome emphasis on rehabilitation. The illustrations are generally well done and augment the text. There is some overlap of the content from chapter to chapter. The vast majority of the book focuses on neurological, as opposed to vascular, pathology. Evidence-based recommendations do not exist for some topics.
Assessment: This is a unique, high-quality book that will be quite useful to practitioners of sports medicine. A similar book, Peripheral Nerve Injuries in the Athlete, Feinberg and Spielholz (Human Kinetics, 2003), covers neurological conditions but not the vascular component.
